You’ve seen them. Those beautiful, panning time-lapse shots. Or those long, smooth, tracking camera movements. A steady hand isn’t enough to re-create them and historically, engineering ability and money was needed to capture them. Technology has evolved however, and the clever people at Syrp have not only been able to develop incredibly smooth, solid mechanisms, but have been able to do so at a level of affordability accessible to most production budgets.
“Syrp provides innovative tools for cinematographers that give unrestricted freedom for your creative eye”
New Zealand based company, Syrp, brings the best of the design and film industry together to develop products that unleash the creativity in film-makers. The focus remains on the end user and ensuring their time is well spent on creating amazing images and films rather than dealing with expensive and technically challenging equipment.
Syrp Genie Mini
Pocket-sized motion control. The Genie mini is an extremely easy-to-use device to create smooth panning motion time-lapse or real-time video. Wireless connectivity to the Genie Mini using the Syrp Genie App allows for quick setup and simple control.
The Genie is a simple, portable solution for motion control time-lapse and real-time video. Designed to be part of your regular camera kit, with no external wires, batteries or controllers there’s no need to ever go without the option of motion control again.
