The Genie gives you the flexibility of using two axis simply through this advanced device. Either use the Genie on a tripod for panning motion or on a slider for tracking shots.


Instead of creating an integrated motion control system that requires a specific camera slider, Syrp has carefully designed the Genie to work with all types of existing sliders. With just one click you can add amazing production value to your films which is a bonus to most filmmakers. Once attached, simply program the Syrp Genie to perform motion control time-lapse or perfectly smooth video moves.

Works with DIY

Imagine time-lapsing 100 metres between buildings or between mountain tops. The Genie opens up endless possibilities for unlimited length time-lapse moves using its unique rope system. Build your own cable cam rig or attach the Genie to your old skateboard to produce creative shots and to get impressive angles, dream up any shot you can imagine and add motion control with one click.

Portable Device

Compared to other motion controllers the Genie is incredibly portable allowing you to never have to go without the option of motion control again. With no external batteries, complicated wires or third party controllers, the entire unit takes up just one slot in your everyday camera bag.

Real-time Video

Video mode enables perfectly smooth tracking or panning shots, eliminating human error occuring and allowing repeat-ability so you can operate as a one-man crew for interviews or cutaway shots.

Ease In/ Ease Out

Ramp the 'in' and 'out' points of your movement in both time-lapse and video mode to achieve smooth eased movement control - this being perfect for filmmakers as it saves less time editing and allows more time for creativity on the go.


Shoot amazing stars, people or clouds time-lapses straight out of the box. With the click of a few buttons on your Syrp Genie you can start some simple time-lapses with literally no setup time using the Syrp Preset Menu. Alternatively, create your own settings and save them down as custom presets to save you valuable on-location time.

HDR Timelapse

Use the Advanced Setup menu to create amazing HDR time-lapses. Set your camera to your desired bracketed exposures and let the Genie take care of the rest.

Bulb Ramping

Shoot sunsets and sunrises using the bulb ramping feature through your Syrp Genie Motion Control Time-Lapse Device which allows you to hold an exposed image throughout the entire time-lapse, even when light is changing drastically.

Auto-start Mode

In auto start mode you can set a countdown timer to begin a recording or alternatively set a time and date you wish to begin your shot, and simply sit back and allow the Syrp Genie Motion Control Time-Lapse Device to do the rest.
