Over the last months, I backed three projects at Kickstarter. Overall, I've been so excited about the projects and couldn't wait for the product to arrive. Today, one of the projects I backed came through, and a package out of Hong Kong was delivered.
But first, here are the three projects I backed:
- The Genie - Motion control time lapse device
- The Kick - A pocket size lightning studio for photo & video
- NanoLight - The world's most energy efficient lightbulb!
Genie - Motion Control Time Lapse Device
If you read my blog on a regular basis, you know I have lost my heart, and a lot of time to photography. You can see some of my best pictures at DPictures.com.
So naturally, I was drawn to some great photography gear projects on Kickstarter, like the Genie. And who wouldn't want to be able to make great time lapse video's of a series of photo's? My first attempt ever was a project I could have used the genie, the Equinox at Chichen Itza Mexico. And just check out the appealing video of the Genie by the team of Syrp.
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.
I hope I can soon be able to start with more time lapse photo series, and make some interesting video's!
So today, I took the special moment to unpack the Genie, and document the moment...(BTW, as part of the backing of the project, my name got printed on the box, see picture below)
