Syrp’s sweet spot for B cameras

Syrp’s sweet spot for B cameras


As a single operator, how do you make interviews look dynamic and interesting? And how do you make them easy to edit?

The answer is simple, but the result can be stunning. Firstly, you interview your subject from static Camera A, while moving camera B back and forth. You automate the movements of Camera B using Syrp’s slider, mobile app and motion control products. The constant panning cut in with the static camera gives a truly televisual look, and unlike with a single camera angle, there’s no risk of jump cuts in the edit stage.

Adding smooth horizontal camera movements is achievable with Syrp’s super smooth Magic Carpet slider. To automate movement on Magic Carpet, or any camera slider, just add Syrp’s Genie II Linear unit. Using Linear’s unique pulley system you gain precise linear motion control along the slider. To set up your B camera movements, link Syrp’s mobile app to Genie II linear and you can quickly set up a repeated left to right camera motion along Magic Carpet.

Want the camera to stay pointing at your subject as it moves along Magic Carpet? No problem. You can keep your subject in the centre of the linear shot by pairing the Genie II Linear with a Genie Mini panning unit. With key start and stop frames you can synchronise both units in the Syrp app and lock the camera onto your subject as it moves along the slider.

With Syrp, it’s easy to hit that sweet spot
