Syrp Magic Carpet Camera Slider Overview

Shoot super-smooth video and time-lapse shots with the Syrp Magic Carpet Short Slider. The kit includes the Magic Carpet Slider Carriage, two end caps, and one 24" section of aluminum track. It is simple to set up and take with you to local and remote locations. When you're ready to move on, it quickly breaks down into a compact bundle, giving you more room to pack your camera gear.

The slider carriage features a reversible 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 mounting screw, so you can use almost any camera or head on the slider, minding the 11 lb weight limit on the track section. The included end caps feature articulating legs that allow you to adjust the level of the slider when shooting on uneven terrain and feature both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for mounting.

Syrp Magic Carpet Carriage and End Caps

The Magic Carpet Carriage and End Caps from Syrp are designed for use with either the Magic Carpet 2.6' Short Track or 5.2' Long Track. The Carriage easily slides into the end of the track and includes a brake, a bubble level, and a reversible 3/8"16 and 1/4"-20 threaded screw to attach either a camera, ballhead, or tripod head.

The two End Caps slot into the end of the tracks and have adjustable quick release legs which are easily adjusted by pulling out a lever, without the need for additional tools. The End Caps also include Genie rope lock-off hooks which enable the Syrp Genie Motion Control Time Lapse Device to be easily attached and locked off. Additionally, the end caps have a counter balance wheel which allows for vertical slides with heavier cameras. The Genie rope is simply tied off around the carriage and then thread through the counter balance wheel. A weight is used to offset the camera weight.

  • Carriage and End Caps are universal to the Magic Carpet system and fit either the Short Track or Long Track
  • Brake and bubble level on Carriage
  • Reversible 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 threaded screw for attaching camera, ballhead, or tripod head
  • End Caps with adjustable quick release legs
  • Genie rope lock off hooks for using with Genie Motion Control Time Lapse Device
  • Counter balance wheel for vertical slides with heavier cameras

question

Hi, i have this slider and a Surui tripod. Could you tell me which plate can i use for mounting the Magic Carpet on my tripod? Thanks.
Asked by: Mariano F.
If by plate you mean the two sets of rails that come in Kit, you can use either set of on a tripod. Simply attach the tripods quick release plate to the middle screw hole. Do be cognoscente that you need a robust tripod if you have a heavy camera and video head particularly if you use the 5.2' rail set. Otherwise you may fall over.

question

How can I choose the right tripod to use with the magic carpet?
Asked by: Otavio
I attach a tripod on one end and a light stand on the other side and it works great. If you want to shoot video with it I would get a head like this: https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/827210-REG/Manfrotto_MVH502AH_75Mm_Flat_Head.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/827210-REG/Manfrotto_MVH502AH_75Mm_Flat_Head.html</a> It hooks right on the slider and works great. If you are doing timelapse then get a head like the one Syrp sells.

Can you expand the length on the regular Magic Carpet? I know you can on the Pro, but I want to know if you can on this model.
Asked by: Ian
No, unfortunately, the Syrp Magic Carpet 3.3' Medium Track with Carriage and End Caps Kit cannot be extended like the Syrp Magic Carpet PRO Short Slider Kit with Extension (60"). It is possible to swap the track to something longer by opting for the Syrp Magic Carpet Long Track (5.2'). See the link below: https://bhpho.to/3JHkjyi

hello, does the end caps have 3/8" holes centred below or other size holes to mount them on a tripod ?
Asked by: clement
The Syrp Magic carpet slider has 1/4 20 and 3/8 connections on the slider rail that would allow you to attach tripods as support like in this image - https://bit.ly/3sLB0BP
