Introducing the Syrp Slingshot!

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

Our friends over at Syrp have added to their line of motion control devices with the new Slingshot Motion Control Timelapse Cable Cam! 

Imagine being able to do really really long motion shots! We’re usually constrained by the length of our slider but not any more.

They’ve considered the important things like portability as well.

The only thing you’ll have to worry about is wind.

And just how long can you go? 100 meters! That’s amazing.
