The other problem is that its already funded, and the final RRP will be $1000 or so, as per here: http://syrp.co.nz/shop​/ (external link)

Being already funded means you can't get in on the action now, and the RRP of $1k makes other options even more attractive.

You can do linear and panning with a second genie. The price is 875 now on www.genietimelapse.com (external link)

I won't be buying two but I will be making my own dolly for it.

Well, i decided to back it, I figure I eventually am gonna wanna get a stage zero so I'll throw this on it for another axis of motion when that time comes in the late future.

I would've jumped on Genie probably for the linear motion when it was in its kickstarter stage, when I think it was only 500 or 600, but I can't justify the cost now, I'd rather go radian + dp stage zero

I'm probably going to jump on it too. $150 isn't bad.

, and

let's see dp stage 1 or 0 with 2x radian or astro cheaper and 3axis of movement

or emotimo tb3 and just add a rail or diy rail eg string and skateboard to it and third motor and you have more than the genie can do in a smaller lighter package.

But do they all tie into each other for timing? Can they save presets? It looks like the genie can easily integrate with any dolly and is really only restricted by rope length.

I'm thinking of making a foldable dolly which could extend to 6ft but fold to 1.5 ft.

I'm still not convinced by the movement of the radian or the astro.

well my merlin head and dp ties in perfectly and so does the emotimo with a third motor to drive the dp rail or use the dps mx2 and the emotimo all of these work well together.

I'm not really sold on the rope idea time lapses are about smooth movement.. rope in my mind would not be smooth like a rail.

Each to their own though they will all do the trick I'm happy with my choices


oh and also if you want to use rope you could diy it on any of the above easily

Man, seeing all this stuff totally makes me want to do timelapses...

But I've never really going to throw together a video, nor do I want to spend all that extra time TAKING the video... :(

I find it to be more satisfying than just taking a picture. A real sense of accomplishment when I put it all together. Even more so when it comes out better than I expected. A bit of a nightmare when
It's not due to silly mistakes I make. But that's part of it.

I have a lot to learn about it but it's fascinating stuff.
