Syrp Ge­nie

NPhoto - - Test Team -

Panora­mas are just one of many things that this au­to­mated box of tricks can cap­ture. The Ge­nie is all about mo­tion con­trol, mean­ing you can also use it to cre­ate stun­ning time-lapse se­quences as it pans. From rush hour cityscapes to ce­les­tial star trails, the Ge­nie will cap­ture it with ease. The bat­tery life is ap­prox­i­mately seven hours, and the LCD menu dis­play and pre-sets make it easy to use.

The de­vice has no ex­ter­nal bat­ter­ies or wires to get tan­gled in with the rest of your kit. Sim­ply screw it in be­tween your tri­pod and ball head and away you go. Al­ter­na­tively, mount the Ge­nie on a slider and a mo­tor in the base will wind it along a rope so you can also cre­ate lin­ear as well as pan­ning time-lapses. What’s more, if you don’t have a slider, the Ge­nie will pull it­self along on a makeshift dolly such as a skate­board.

Very neat, with no wires or knobs to get caught, the Ge­nie is ca­pa­ble of more than just panora­mas
