NAB 2014 Wrap-up. Top 10 Products. Syrp’s Genie

Syrp’s Genie is genius.
By Eduardo Angel and Sean Davis

The Genie Motion Control Time Lapse Device from Syrp is a time lapse or real time video beauty. A super compact 4″ cube at only 3.3lb combined with Edelkrone’s new (and brilliant) Pocket series, this is a dream come true for backpackers and HDR enthusiasts, and it’s great for time lapse, panorama, astrophotography, and cloudscape applications.


The Genie, allows both panning and linear motion control, and can be attached (I was told) to ANY standard camera movement system, such as dollies, sliders, jib arms and tripods. According to the tech specs “at maximum panning speed a 360° pan takes 5 seconds, while 39 inches of linear movement takes 23 seconds. Inputs include both USB for firmware and a sensor input, which accepts a motion, light, sound or other type of sensor to start your program in response to specific stimuli.”
