Sleeker, more integrated, and with sophisticated app control, Syrp is pushing hard to dominate affordable powered camera movement with the Genie II.
New Zealand accessory makers have come out with a major revision of their original Genie motorized slider, the new Genie II, first shown off back at NAB 2019 and now shipping.
We used one of the original Genie systems for making a motion ident two years ago and we were very eager to see what the new unit offered in comparison. What we found can primarily be defined in terms of more integrated hardware and more sophisticated app control, something we failed to appreciate the first time around.
Here are our first impressions of the Syrp Genie II after using it on set.
