Syrp Announces The Magic Carpet Pro – A Flexible Professional Slider That Can Grow

By Wendell Weithers on March 15th 2018

Syrup appears to have a great sense of what today’s visual creatives need. Whether you’re shooting a film or product photography, if you’ve ever thought “I wish I had a…”, Syrp products seem to fill in that blank.

Their latest release, the Magic Carpet Pro, is a slider which is built to meet the durability demands of supporting professional cinema cameras. If you want to safely add smooth and engaging movement to your shots, this might be worth your consideration.

Product Highlights

 – Flywheel weight: 1.16 lbs (0.525kg)

 – Carriage Brake for Safe Transport

The Magic Carpet Pro will come in three track lengths to accommodate a variety of your filmmaking needs. However, these aren’t three distinct models. The Magic Carpet Pro is a modular system designed to give you the flexibility of extending or reducing your track length. This will be particularly helpful to budget-constrained shooters as it allows you to extend your track after your initial purchase.
