    Genie Mini Panning Motion Control System is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Numerous Problems with these things I had issues with units either not holding a battery charge (which you can not change out) or saying the firmware was out of date, successfully upgrading it and then it complaining again immediately afterwards to update it again and was not ever able to get much use out of the thing. The first unit of these I got was not even assembled all the way from the factory. The protective rubber casing was not on the first one, so I exchanged it and the second one started giving me problems in a few weeks. I really want to love this whole thing but just can't until they resolve some issues with their system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable control on the go ! Great portable control on the go ! I recently bought the Genie Mini Panning Motion Control System as an add on to my syrup Genie. I wanted to create some nice parallax video and cool sliding panning time lapse shots. Beyond the awesome combination of the syrup genie with the mini, the mini is a great standalone unit. Set up is easy with your smart phone. There are presets already configured, or set your own the way you. Smooth Video or Photo Time lapse. **It does make a little bit of noise audio for interview should be aware. I was even able to pull off a smooth pan time lapse without my tripod by holding the mini securely to a flat surface.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Results but I like it I got 2 of these in a kit. One was fine and one came without the protective rubber case on the outside and old firmware, which I had to update. I can accept that someone just made a mistake on the one I got that was not fully assembled. I used the good one and sent the bad one back. I am happy with the good one but remember the batteries in these things are not replaceable by the consumer as far as I can tell. The android app is easy to install and use. There are some minor usability quirks in the app and you have to remember to set your white balance to manual but it's a pretty cool way to shoot panoramas. You can use it with a video camera but should realize that the noise from the motor turning will be in the video unless you mute the video.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from App needs work Product seems to be well built with good battery life but is a bit of axial play apparent if you put a tripod head between it and the camera but with a single axis monopod head it is firm enough. The app should have a daytime mode with white background and larger black font as it is hard to read the finer print outside in daylight. Major peeve is when it tries to slew 350 degrees CW when 10 degrees CCW would be a better choice to get to the start position. Gets the job done though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genie Mini The genie Mini does all as advertised and the app is feature rich. The build quality is as good as the Genie unit,but the use of cork may be good for friction retention of ballheads,but is not so good for vibration control. One feature I would like to see is the ability to toggle in/out ramping off entirely. Also . you can only get about three revolutions max on the app settings. This isn't a problem for most but I see a use in driving a macro slider for focus stacking and 3 rev's isn't enough . Perhaps if Syrp is reading this they will consider a change in firmware to allow it. Also an included calculator for choosing focus moves would be peachy. Buy one , it's good stuff. I highly recommend it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice little timelapser Use it together with a Canon 5D Marklll. Nice to use via app on my iphone. It gives smooth panning timelapses. I had an issue with a error message too many times last evening. I had to switch off both the mini zyrp genie and the app many times to get it work. Hopefully this can be fixed in an firmware update?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from seriously flaw in tilt axis As a previous reviewer noted, an intermittent and unpredictable tilt motion occurs which causes the tilt unit to travel 360 degrees in the direction OPPOSITE of its intended location. It should be obvious that there is potential damage to the unit and attached camera. Until the manufacturer corrects this problem, my advice is to steer clear of the dual axis system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powefull, Accurate and Lightweight I have been using timelapse motion control devices for a while now and I am impressed with the build quality of this one. There is no wobbling around at all while panning even on windy conditions. I used to mound my Nikon D810 with battery grip and 24-70mm with hood on this with no problems at all. Setup could have never been easier with the mobile application. It also conserves power as there is no LCD inside the unit. I wish we can sync two of these together without geting the big and bulky syrp genie.
