This is something that many photographers and filmmakers would give a lot to their hands on. However, the Genie is not currently on sale as it is in the early fundraising stages with Kickstarter, although it has already gone past the funding goal by a long way and there are still seven weeks to go! It is simple to use, just pop the camera on top and adjust the settings to suit the requirements of the job. By backing the Genie through Kickstarter, it is a chance to get in on the ground floor and pick up a Genie at a great price too!
According the pitch on the crowd funding site Kickstarter, this is what the Genie is all about;
The Genie! A simple, affordable and extremely easy to use device used for motion control and image capture for Time Lapse Photography + more. The Genie is an all-in-one device used to combine image capture with motion control, capable of either panning or linear movement that’s commonly used in Time Lapse Photography. Simply attach your camera to the top of the Genie, plug it in, and program it to move and shoot to your desired needs.
The retail price for the Genie will be around £600 ($1,000) when it is launched.
