Genie Mini now connects with our new App

A little progress each day adds up to big things! It is now possible for Genie Mini users to connect their device with the Syrp Genie 2 App. At this stage, not all features are available and it will be necessary to switch to the old Syrp Genie app if you want to access the Panorama and Turntable functions of the Genie Mini. In addition if you want to use the original Genie with the Genie Mini you will need to use the original Syrp Genie App.

Our objective is to eventually transition the old app into the new app so that all functions will be available but please note we cannot confirm if the new App will be able to support the original Genie. We are currently working on this transition and will hopefully have an update ready by the beginning of next year. We always aim for smooth sailing but with such a complex project you never quite know what’s around the corner.

  1. Hi,

    Will i be able to use my phone to shoot moving long exposure time lapse video?
    My camera Olympus EM10 Mark iii has no jack.
    So considering to use the phone to do it.

    Please kindly reply.

    Cheers,
    Thi Ha

    1. Hi Thi Ha, You will be able to use it with your phone, but not the shutter cable. Therefore you will have to use the time-lapse feature on your phone and directly set it up on your phone. If you have any other questions, please send an email to [email protected]

  2. I have Genie (not Genie 2) and Genie Mini, which apps should I use. Syrp or Syrp 2?

    1. For the Genie, you should use the app called Syrp.

      For Genie Mini, not all features are available and it will be necessary to switch to the old Syrp Genie app if you want to access the Panorama and Turntable functions of the Genie Mini. In addition, if you want to use the original Genie with the Genie Mini you will need to use the original Syrp Genie App. Use the new Syrp Genie II app with Genie Mini for keyframing only.

      Our objective is to eventually transition the old app into the new app so that all functions will be available but please note we cannot confirm if the new App will be able to support the original Genie. We are currently working on this transition and will hopefully have an update ready by the beginning of next year.

      1. “Our objective is to eventually transition the old app into the new app so that all functions will be available but please note we cannot confirm if the new App will be able to support the original Genie.”

        PLEASE do not ditch the original Genie when merging the apps into one. I love the Genie Mini and Genie combo, and I don’t want to shell out more money for a newer supported unit. I am willing to pay $50 (and I’m sure other original Genie owners will too) for the new app if it supports old Genie when connect to the Mini and other new Genie products. The original Genie is a solid, reliable, awesome piece of equipment especially when paired with the Mini. Please continue app development to support this combo!!!

        1. Hey Eric, we are currently testing if the new app will be able to support the original Genie too so you only have to use one app instead of two. Will share an update with everybody really soon. Stay tuned!

  3. Hye
    And what about auto ramping solution using the genie mini in the app??? Could you add this feature? It could better better for make better exposure transitions while using the Genie mini for holy grail timelapses!! Complete solution instead of using third partie app or hardware…

    1. Unfortunately, it won’t be available for Genie Mini, as it requires USB camera control and the Genie Mini doesn’t have that, but we have some surprises coming soon that will be very interesting 🙂

  4. Hi, When is the Genie pan-tilt available ?
    Thanks, Frank
