The Syrp Magic Carpet PRO Short Slider Kit with Extension builds on their original Magic Carpet design, incorporating strong alloy materials and quick release components to give filmmakers a practical and easily assembled solution for cinema cameras. This kit includes a 3' track and 2' extension, which enables you to build a slider track that is either 2, 3, or 5' long. Additional track segments are available separately and with enough support, you can construct a slider of any length.

The included Pro slider carriage features an integrated flywheel. The weight resistance of the flywheel smooths out the sliding motion, so immersive tracking shots can be accomplished with both light and heavy cameras. Soft carry bags are included for transport and storage. See below for more information on the individual items included in this kit.

Syrp Magic Carpet PRO End Caps and Carriage

The Syrp Magic Carpet PRO End Caps and Carriage complete the Magic Carpet PRO slider. Install these on your Magic Carpet PRO track, and you'll be ready to film smooth tracking shots and time-lapses with your mirrorless camera, DSLR, or cinema camera. The carriage features a weighted flywheel which provides extra inertia, damping sliding motion for smoother results. Syrp's quick release system on the carriage lets you quickly install the Genie system or camera mounting equipment. Both end caps incorporate collapsible legs with feet that can adjust to the terrain. Hooks on the end caps can secure the Genie rope for time-lapse functionality.

I've tried using small sliders with my FX6, large head and movement. However with the other slider, I got a lot of "play" when tilting the camera up or down with a good amount of resistance set, to make it smooth. My rig is only about 25 pounds, and sits about 12 inches above the slider due to the size of the sachtler activ 8 head. Does this slider have play that it will torque and twist, if you have a decent size rig and tight tripod head? or is it totally solid?
Asked by: Britta
This slider is definitely solid for large setups but we also recommend using two tripods or stands for additional support.

Is there an easy way to mount this slider on a tripod without half ball mount?
Asked by: Philipp
Yes, the Syrp Magic Carpet PRO Short Slider Kit with Extension (60") (B&H# SYKIT0021H) can be mounted on flat top tripods just as easily as it could be mounted on those with bowls and half balls. If your concern is the leveling of the slider, however, then please note that it may also be mounted directly on multiple tripods using tripod heads that are not mounted on half balls, too.

What are the difference between the PRO and the regular Carbon Fiber track? Is the flywheel worth the price difference?

Pro support 5 time more weight than the Carbon/Metal models and the fly wheels helps when heavy load starts and stops with less jerk.

What length of Magic Carpet can be safely mounted on a single tripod?
Asked by: C + A
Entirely dependent on the total weight of the camera/lens setup. The slider support rods can help and also you can attach a monopod to each end to make setup quicker and stable rather than adjusting the height/centering of two tripods.
