Syrp Introduces the Genie Mini II Motion Controller

Syrp has launched the Genie Mini II camera motion controller with the ability to create keyframed movement and multi-row panorama. It also features auto exposure ramping, time-lapse compiler and camera control.

Syrp said the Genie Mini II aims to attract a broader audience of users by creating a simple tool with key features that will open creative possibilities for videographers, filmmakers and photographers.

The first generation Genie Mini was an app-controlled device, designed to accommodate a wider range of cameras. The app was designed with an extremely intuitive graphical user interface including user presets and tutorials to help improve the user's workflow making set up simple to accomplish.

The new version now includes Wi-Fi, USB-C and Bluetooth 4.2; enabling future app features like camera control, auto exposure ramping and a time-lapse compiler. It is compatible with the latest Syrp Genie 2 app and includes a more advanced keyframing setup mode. This enables content creators to shoot more complex motion control movements by adjusting the speed and path of movement to be completely custom.

Also included with this release is multi-row panorama, which allows image makers to create high resolution “gigapixel" and 360 VR images when combining two Genie Mini II’s with the Pan Tilt Bracket.

The new Bluetooth 4.2 provides a more reliable and faster connection including the ability to set 10 keyframes and the ability to shoot five rows of multi-row panorama. In terms of appearance, it has a sharper, sleeker design aesthetic.
