Revolve + Genie

The Revolve Camera dolly can do a lot. With it's adjustable axles the dolly can maneuver in an endless range of rotational angles giving you any degree of circular movement that you want. With it's rail kit, the Revolve turns into a camera slider with a tripod mountable track. This track can be any length you desire. The monopood attachment lets you adjust the height of the camera, and even lets you use the system as a camera stabilizer. And with multiple mounting points, the dolly can even carry your accessories like lights and LCD monitors. Even with all these fatures, the whole system is fully portable, and very affordable. But, even after all this, there is still more possibilities.

One amazing addition to the system comes with the innovation of the guys over at Syrp. They have created an automatic motion control time lapse device called The Genie. Funded over at Kickstarter (just like the Revolve!), the Genie is a revolutionary product, and one that pairs amazingly well with the Revolve system. The Genie is a motorized computer controlled device that can help you create automated time lapse videos. The unit controls the motion of your camera, as well as your camera's shutter, providing full timelapse automation. The movements include a panning motion, and our favorite feature- a linear movement motion.

The linear accessory lets your camera move along a slider or dolly track automatically. A rope connected to both sides of the track is pulled by the Genie's motor, automatically moving the dolly. The length of linear movement is only limited by the length of your rope. This means the Genie can move your Revolve dolly along the entire length of your track when using with the rail kit. It can also be used off the track, just as easily.

With the linear accessory, you can also use the Revolve + Genie combo to create an automated cable cam. Simply screw a few eye-bolts into the axles of the Revolve dolly, and string a length of cable. The Revolve dolly becomes the trolley that allows your camera to glide across the cables. Cable cams can give some awesome perspectives and very unique shots!
 

There are an unlimited number of possibilities when combining great photo and video tools like the Revolve Dolly system, and the Genie motion control device. To learn more about the Genie, you can visit the Syrp website by CLICKING HERE.
