About Syrp Genie II Kit
– Genie II Linear –
This supercharged version of the original Genie comes with improved speed, power, noise reduction and many new features. Genie II Linear can attach to any film equipment on the market including your favourite sliders, cable cams and DIY gear. We’ve redesigned the rope drive system meaning there’s a lot less friction making it more reliable for vertical motion and improved power consumption.
Use the time-lapse mode for linear motion time-lapse and the video mode for smooth motion video. Portability was kept at the forefront of design so Genie II Linear can easily slot into any camera bag and always be a part of your regular camera kit.
Genie II Linear – The Go-To Motion Controller
If you’re shooting interviews or anything that requires keeping the noise down to a minimum, Genie II Linear is your go-to motion controller. It provides both the smooth controlled motion that you need in your films and it runs back and forward without you having to monitor it. Plus, the added bonus of being ultra-quiet.
Quickly Re-position with App or Integrated Joystick
You can fully control the Linear Drive with the app utilising key frames for complex setup. You can also use the integrated joystick on the device for quickly re-positioning it without having to use your smartphone or tablet, perfect for quick setup and run-and-gun productions.
Lightning Fast Quick Release System
The Quick Release system was specifically designed to keep your camera secure while keeping you mobile and is one of our greatest on-location time savers. Genie II Linear has the Quick Release plate integrated. Simply attach the QR Plate to your camera or Tripod head and click it straight in to shoot.
The Magic Carpet Pro also comes with an integrated QR plate. If you attach Genie II Linear with Magic Carpet Pro you will get an incredibly low profile, stable setup.
Click in the Genie II Pan Tilt directly into the linear, sync over Bluetooth and you have a full 3-Axis system that can be setup and controlled either via the on-board display on the Pan Tilt or on the Syrp Genie 2 App.
As an alternative you can combine Genie Mini with the Genie II Linear Drive for a super sleek and compact Pan Track Motion Controller. It gives filmmakers a powerful but affordable 2 axis system, capable of being connected to any slider on the market. Adding another Genie Mini enables 3-Axis in a powerful modular package.
Full App Redesign
The App has had a complete redesign. Now includes multi-axis Keyframing, Auto Bulb Ramping, Camera Control, Live View and much, much more. Not all features will be available upon the first release, but free firmware updates will happen regularly.
A super charged version of the original Genie, Genie II Linear is compatible with any slider, dolly or cable cam system. Use on its own, with a Genie Mini Pan Tilt Kit or with Genie II Pan Tilt for powerful 3 axis motion control.
Genie II carries with it the same attention to simplicity and portability as the original Genie, but this time customers will also be getting key framing, full camera control, high speed wireless connection, multi-axis movement and much, much more.
