Photographers looking for more control whilst using their DSLR camera to capture time-lapse photography or with motion control. Might be interested in the new concept called the Genie, which is currently on the crowd sourcing website Kickstarter, looking to make the jump from concept to production.
Genie has been designed and created by Chris Thomson & Ben Ryan, and provides numerous different way to remotely control your camera for extra photographic creativity.
The Genie can be setup to record either panning or linear time lapses, and can be programmed to move and shoot in a panning direction at a speed controlled by you.
“One of the coolest things about the Genie is that it is able to integrate with all of your existing equipment – whether you have a professional slider or your homemade DIY track, simply screw the Genie on and attach the rope to either end using the supplied accessory. Since the Genie uses standard rope in linear mode, the only limit to the length of your camera move is how long your length of rope is”
The Genie is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think it is something you could benefit from, jump over to the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help the Genie become a reality.
