NAB 2018: Take a Ride on Syrp's Magic Carpet Pro slider


Just in time for NAB, we here at B&H Photo are happy to announce the Syrp Magic Carpet Pro, slider kits, and components, supporting up to 70 pounds of camera and accessories over a single length of track, and up to 50 pounds when using track extensions. The Magic Carpet Pro is a smooth-riding slider, ready to handle cameras ranging from mirrorless and DSLR, all the way up to full size Digital Cinema Cameras. It is available in three pre-made kits, the Magic Carpet Pro (2'), Magic Carpet Pro (3'), which feature a slider with two or three feet of track length, respectively. The and Magic Carpet Pro Short + Medium Combo Kit gives you the two- and three-foot lengths of track to extend the slider to a full five feet. Or, if you want to build your own dolly piece by piece, you have the option to buy the slider carriage and end caps, and 2 or 3' track extensions individually.

The Magic Carpet Pro features a slider with a weighted flywheel that smooths out your starts and stops for a smooth manual slide. You can mount the slider system with the camera above or below the tracks and maintain the 50-pound load capacity in either configuration. For vertical moves, the system supports up to 24 pounds of camera and accessories at 9" extended out from the carriage. The carriage is made from a die-cast alloy, and the end caps feature adjustable-angle legs, and feet with fine adjustments so you can precisely level the slider using the built-in bubble level. The track lengths are made from 6061 aluminum alloy, so they are both lightweight and extremely strong. Additional track lengths can be added to any Magic Carpet Pro for virtually endless track runs.
