Utilizing the full 180° of tilt, the Genie II head can support up to 7.9 pounds, and up to 12.3 pounds if only the middle 90° are being used. Weighing just three pounds, this lightweight head is designed for portability.

    Syrp Genie II reviews

    Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Syrp Genie II better than I have used the Genie II pan-tilt and linear units a couple of times so this review is very limited. I have been using the Genie mini pan before, sometimes with a second unit and a bracket (pan-tilt mode). I liked it very much but I noticed two main issues with the mini pan-tilt system. First you need to attach multiple devices to a bracket and particularly in cold weather tightening the screws and the infamous green wheel is not easy. Second, the bracket itself has some flexibility and therefore there is a possibility of vibration. With the new Genie II these two issues are not present; Genie II pan-tilt handles both movements in a single unit. The unit is very well built and feels solid. That in turn comes with an increase in total weight (as per B&H specs, 3.1 pounds for the Genie II and 2.46 pounds for the mini pan-tilt with bracket). Weight may not be a limiting factor if you use it close to your car or just carry the essential equipment for a timelapse; however, if you are doing an overnight hike you need to consider this additional weight. The camera quick plate is oversized when compared with a typical ARCA plate; this means that you need to replace the plate attached to the camera with the one from the Genie II. The good news is that that plate holds very well the camera and has an additional safety feature that avoids accidental sliding of the plate out of the Genie II. There are 3 USB ports that can be used interchangeable for connecting to a camera or just for charging. The Genie II pan-tilt can be controlled using a smartphone app or by a joystick in the unit. I have only used the app. The OFF button is a pain because it takes more than 10 sec of continuous pressing the button to turn it off; on the other hand, turning the Genie II on is fast, too fast because sometimes occurs during transportation. The Syrp Genie II app still is not integrated with the Genie and the mini app although the plan is to merge all Syrp devices in a single app. The Syrp app is currently incomplete based on the expected features such as 360 multi-row panorama,3670 timelapse, HDR timelapse, bulb ramping, etc. I can't wait for future updates! However, what you can do with the app is very intuitive. I have not used the available key frame feature but Syrp has a video showing how to use it. My final impression is very positive for this device as it has been using the Genie mini in the past. This company puts a lot of effort in R&D and shows in their products but there is always room for improvement.
