Syrp Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head
Create sliding shots and time-lapses with dynamic pan and tilt movements using the Syrp Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head. Set up basic shots using the head's built-in software or create complex moves with keyframes and more using the redesigned control app on your smartphone. Joystick control is featured on both the head and the app, enabling you to easily set start and end points.
Portable Motion Control
  • When using the full 180° tilt, the Genie II head can support up to 6.61 lb, and up to 13.23 lb if only the middle 90° are being used. Weighing just 4.25 lb, this lightweight head is designed for portability.
  • It snaps easily into the separately available Genie II Linear's integrated quick release system to create a 3-axis motion control head for your slider.
Interfaces
  • Interface features include three USB-C ports, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, and a color LCD window.
Mobile Control
  • App functions include Bulb Ramping for day-to-night time-lapse exposure, Simple Setup, Live View, 360° Time-Lapse, Multi-Row Panorama, and more.
  • Be sure to check the Syrp website for the latest camera control compatibility.
Note:
An additional Shutter Link Cable is required to trigger the camera in some required modes, including time-lapse and panorama. Otherwise, camera control is available and requires the USB cable that comes with your camera, which can also enable standard triggering.
Camera Quick Release
  • A USB-C cable adapter is included for plugging in your camera for app-controlled shutter release, and a quick release plate is included for securing your camera.
Syrp Genie II Linear

Add the Syrp Genie II Linear to your slider along with the included Genie rope, and you can enjoy motorized sliding for precise tracking shots and dynamic time-lapse sequences. The versatile Genie II is also compatible with nearly any third-party slider.

Features include reduced friction on the rope drive, a quick release camera plate for easy setup, keyframing with the Genie 2 app; and joystick, smartphone, and tablet control. Quiet operation and a compact portable design enable you to use the Genie II Linear almost anywhere your travel.

A smartphone connected via Bluetooth can control the Genie II Linear wirelessly, and when used with the Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head, you can access 3 axes of motion to accomplish more advanced shots.

Future app features will include Bulb Ramping for day-to-night time-lapse exposure, HDR Timelapse, Simple Setup, Live View, 360° Time-Lapse, Multi-Row Panorama, and more.

Syrp Magic Carpet Medium Track (3.3')

The 3.3' Magic Carpet Medium Track from Syrp provides a sliding surface for the Magic Carpet slider system. It supports loads up to 15.4 lb and is compatible with the optional Magic Carpet Carriage and End Caps.

Syrp Magic Carpet Carriage and End Caps

The Magic Carpet Carriage and End Caps from Syrp are designed for use with either the Magic Carpet 2.6' Short Track or 5.2' Long Track. The Carriage easily slides into the end of the track and includes a brake, a bubble level, and a reversible 3/8"16 and 1/4"-20 threaded screw to attach either a camera, ballhead, or tripod head.

The two End Caps slot into the end of the tracks and have adjustable quick release legs which are easily adjusted by pulling out a lever, without the need for additional tools. The End Caps also include Genie rope lock-off hooks which enable the Syrp Genie Motion Control Time Lapse Device to be easily attached and locked off. Additionally, the end caps have a counter balance wheel which allows for vertical slides with heavier cameras. The Genie rope is simply tied off around the carriage and then thread through the counter balance wheel. A weight is used to offset the camera weight.

  • Carriage and End Caps are universal to the Magic Carpet system and fit either the Short Track or Long Track
  • Brake and bubble level on Carriage
  • Reversible 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 threaded screw for attaching camera, ballhead, or tripod head

Is it possible to mount it upside down for low angle shots?
Asked by: silard
Yes it is. Since the motor on this also comes in a kit with the Syrp Slingshot, B&H # SYKIT0011, it will be possible to use this system upside down as well. However, how you would set up this slider in that configuration would be something you would need to customize.
