Time-lapse devices are often complex to set up, but not with Syrp. Their products are portable and easy to use even if you have zero experience.
- First you will need a motion control device like the Syrp Genie II. Set it up using the Genie II app (compatible with Android and iOS devices) and connect wirelessly over Bluetooth.
- Next, customise your setup with simple app controls, or select from a wide range of presets including stars and night traffic.
- Finally, connect the Genie II it to your camera using the Syrp link cable, which triggers the shutter for time-lapse.
