Syrp Genie Mini II Panning Motion Control System

Compact enough to fit into a small carry bag or even your coat pocket; the Syrp Genie Mini II is a portable and easy-to-use device for creating smooth panning motion time-lapses or real-time video. The Genie Mini II expands on its predecessor's features with the addition of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 support, longer video recording battery life, a faster USB Type-C connection, and 360/VR panorama support.

The Genie Mini II is designed to sit between your camera and tripod and has an internal motor that enables 360° panning motion with cameras weighing up to 8.8 pounds. Control and setup is done wirelessly using a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection and Syrp's Genie 2 App for iOS and Android devices. To accommodate experienced and beginning time-lapse shooters, the Genie 2 app provides a useful set of presets, so you can start shooting right away. Advanced users will appreciate the faster Bluetooth 4.2 connection to take advantage of more complex, custom motion control settings and multi-row panoramas to create 360/VR images.

A lithium-ion battery provides approximately 15 hours of time-lapse and six hours of smooth, continuous video panning on a single charge. A USB Type-C cable is included for recharging the battery.

Note:
An optional Link Cable is required for connecting your camera to the Genie Mini for time-lapse recording.

Syrp Genie Mini II Reviews

Marvellous device.

Easy to use with iPhone app. Well built. Charming to watch in action.

The most inept firmware updating system ever!

By James M

We all know the frustration of updating firmware in so-called smart devices - yet many today go quite smoothly and easily. Not so with this boat anchor. Upon receiving it, it immediately required a firmware update, and then the problems began. Syrp is obviously aware of the issues - they have multiple webpages describing how to deal with this (e.g. https://support.syrp.co.nz/hc/en-us/articles/360000439815). But why in the world do Syrp engineers not employ safe and successful firmware update methods employed by so many other manufacturers? Beats me, but this has cost me hours of wasted effort today (and I am no stranger to these issues as I teach computer science at a college). I will try a bit more to get this hockey puck to work, but at the moment all I can say to potential buyers is BEWARE.

Waste of money

With the current firmware you can't do a continuous rotation for video, every workaround I tried would result in an error that meant I had to turn the genie mini on and off again.

Don't waste your money

Don't waste your money on this - even though the unit appears nicely built it just does not function as advertised - if you're a professional photog needing to do 360º product shots look elsewhere for other options, that actually work!  Main issue is the app disconnects from the unit CONSTANTLY. Also since the unit won't turn off, you're unable to do a factory reset (work around) until the internal battery drains.  After contacting Syrp customer service and they offered a few other work arounds none of which worked... and since I missed my B&H return window, I'm stuck with this thing. I have been emailing back and forth with Syrp for about 3 months waiting for a replacement unit hoping that I got a lemon... still waiting. Not holding breath.
