Sevenoak are a Chinese manufacturer specialising in value accessories for filmmakers. They were showing several new gadgets at the BIRTV show in Beijing including a handy motorised rotating tripod head for time-lapses. It is designed to take GoPros, Smartphones and lighter DSLRs and Compact system cameras.
Unlike other cheap rotating devices (or hacked egg timers) this one has different settings for duration and degrees of travel. There is a built-in rechargeable battery and device seems well constructed.
The best part however is the price – estimated to be around $70 US by the time it hits the shelves.
They were also showing a more advanced device that seems to have features similar to the popular Syrp Genie. No price or release date was given.
