I talked about the Magic Carpet slider from Syrp back when it was first released, and while I am still waiting for an opportunity to test one on my own, I came across this great demo video that I wanted to share.

As you can see in the video, which gives a great overview of the Magic Carpet and its features, this is a simple, yet extremely versatile slider system. It even works out of the box with their Genie motion control unit for smooth, controlled shots.

Just as a refresher, here are the specs for the Magic Carpet:

Syrp Magic Carpet Specs


  • Adjustable quick-release legs
  • Genie – Motion control ready
  • Counter weight wheel for vertical shots
  • Smooth ball bearing roller carriage
  • Tool-less changing between 3/8 UNC and 1/4 UNC threads

If you are intersted in learning more or would like to purchase one of these quality sliders, you can find all the information you need over on the Syrp website.
