Enjoy and Easly

Works great with my NikonD750, allowing me to take epic 4K time lapses with the Carpet Magic Syrp. Now take a smooth realtime-video with PanaGH5. I love it.

Good, but expensive

I think that the genie is way too expensive, however it works well and is one of the only systems that is compatible with different sliders.

Have to be careful about sound

If you plan to use it for interviews, you have to be careful with your sound setup. Motor is loud, even at the slowest speed. You can use it for time-lapse shots and attach to practically anything with wheels.

Must-have gadget for time lapse!

Syrp Genie is a must-have tool for time-lapse photography. Compact and easy to use. I use it with Magic Carpet Slider and also own the Genie Mini for 3 axis time-lapse shots. I am not sure if it's the best motion control unit for real-time motion due to it's stepper motor noise. However, I'm not doing real-time video capturing with sound.

Overall good product

I really recommend this piece of equipment. I use it with magic carpet and genie mini for some tracking timelapses. What i hate about this setup is that is impossible to get low shot from ground because the camera is very high. But i guess this problem would be the same if i use any other motion controlled unit.
