A few years after launching the Genie Mini, Syrp has released a pocket-sized motion controller, the Genie Mini II.

Focusing on portability, the new Genie Mini II is compatible with other Syrp motion controllers, enabling users to create 2- and 3-axis motion video and time-lapse movies with ease. A new app has been released to enable users to sync two Genie Minis together for Pan Tilt shooting. Simply specify the focal length and overlap for each image, shoot up to five rows and unlimited columns for creating high-resolution images and 360-degree content. A new Advanced Keyframing setup enables users to  set up to 10 key-frames and program more complex motion control movements for panning at different speeds and directions. The simple dial-based interface makes it easy to set-up time-lapse recording. A time-laps compiler will be released shortly enabling users to share directly on Facebook or Instagram. Auto Exposure ramping  and camera control from a smartphonewill also be offered in the near future. Click here for more information.
