It works because the Radian itself has a microprocessor in it which triggers the camera, so you can disconnect your phone.

Bulb ramping means that they have implemented the feedback loop back to the Radian from the camera via the PC port, and hence can know how long the shutter was exactly open for.

This is the way it should be done. But based on the specs for the Radian, it does not seem to have a second port to receive the feedback loop.

However it does specify that its Canon only bulb ramping at the moment, and the Nikon PC port is traditionally the big limitation of bulb ramping on the Nikons.

Edit: just asked the question ont he Kickstarter as im a backer.

If this device can really replace the Little Bramper, and add movement, that would be a good thing.

I've watched the video a few times now and the video just isnt as smooth as I've seen from other time lapse devices such as the dynamic perception stage zero.

The dynamic perception dolly is linear motion, though, not a pan/tilt. Ya, merlin heads are used on it, but that would be the equivalent of a radian if I'm not mistaken.
When combining it with the dynamic perception the results looked good to me... see 2:45 or so during the video, the second shot, the yosemite shot, looked great.

Got a response on Kickstarter:

@Chris There won't be any feedback via a PC port - we are still building out our bulb-ramping features and testing with various brands, and knew Nikon was a huge issue, and did not want to immediately support it. We'll have more information on the bramping features soon!

Pity, will see how it goes. Its certainly not a deal breaker for me though.

I think bulb ramping needs to be fixed by Nikon only, correct me if I'm wrong.

Obviously more expensive than the other two mentioned on this thread but more flexible in what you can do with it. What I especially like is that you can make some disposable rails for whatever the scene requires and the genie will fit to it. I think this is the better one to invest in if you have the money.

Genie is long gone though, and over five times the price of the Radian.

Yes but it really depends on how much you want to experiment with time lapse. This one gives more options than the radian, astro and dynamic perception combined.

when I looked at the genie it could do pan and linear but could not do at the same time

so not really better than dp and Radian that could do 3 axis and it weighs 1.4kg and bulky

for the price I would much rather get a emotimo or stick with radian and dp
