11 April 2018 | Category: General News
A new era of motion control. The Genie II is stronger, faster and quieter than its predecessor with the same attention to simplicity and portability. Sure, you can still fit it in your backpack, but this time you’ll also be getting keyframes, full camera control, Live View, high speed wireless connection, multi-axis movement and much, much more.
Simpler, quieter, stronger
It’s never been easier to take 1, 2 and 3 axis motion control with you. Completely re-designed from the ground up, Genie II will make your dream shots a reality.
Genie II Linear
The Linear drive is an all-new supercharged version of the original Genie, with in-built joystick, Genie II Linear can attach to any slider or other accessory on the market to transform it into a motion control device.
Genie II Pan & tilt
The Pan Tilt Drive introduces filmmakers to a world of options when out filming – use on a tripod for pan-tilt motion, or combine with Genie II's Linear Drive for the full Genie II experience.
Combining Genie II Linear with Pan Tilt gives you the ultimate 3-Axis motion control tool. Set everything up on the App or use the on-board controls for shooting time-lapse, video, panorama and more!
Use the Linear and Pan Tilt drive separately or together for a powerful 1, 2 and 3 axis filmmaking tool.
Full keyframed motion
The Syrp Genie App has been completely redesigned from the ground up. Adjust the course and speed of your move with Genie II’s keyframing feature. Each axis can be setup and controlled independently for complex video and time-lapse movement.
Automated bulb ramping & timelapse compiler
Time-lapsing scenes that include drastic changes in light has always been a challenge, but now with full camera control, you'll be able to ramp exposure automatically. Keep tabs on how it's going by getting the app to compile a time-lapse preview on the fly, so you can see it all right there and then.
Live movement control
Move with your subject! Genie II offers live movement control on both Linear and Pan Tilt with easy-to-use joysticks. Be in control of your speed and change direction of 1, 2 and 3 axis shots at any time.
Full wireless camera control + live view
Control ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed settings from the App! Whether it's during a time-lapse or for setting up your video shot, keep your camera's settings dialled in, perfect for the Slingshot and other filming situations.
Set up multi-row Panorama shots directly from the app using the Pan Tilt drive and create high-resolution images with the tap of a button.
Lightning fast quick release system
Simply attach the quick release plate to your Tripod Head and snap directly into the Linear drive for a secure attachment. Genie II Pan Tilt has also been designed to click straight into the Linear drive making it ultra-stable and quick to setup and secure.
Genie mini integration
Syrp have included the ability to integrate the Genie Mini with the Linear Drive for a lower profile and more powerful 2 and 3 axis motion control setup providing a more cost effective 3-Axis option
Never be limited by the length of your slider. Syrp’s flagship rope drive system means that you can use the Genie II Linear on any length track or slider by simply using longer rope.
