The manufacturer has already made a name for itself with its motion control system “Genie” in the time-lapse area. Now Syrp is putting a larger model aside for the Magic Carpet and Magic Carpet CF.


The previous products from this range are suitable for a maximum load of seven kilograms. Therefore, these are mainly located in the photo segment. The Magic Carpet Pro carries a maximum of 32 kilograms. Thus, the device is able to carry even larger professional cameras.

The construction of the Magic Carpet Pro is said to be particularly stable as elements of aircraft aluminum have been used. A manually adjustable flywheel ensures, according to the manufacturer, for smooth tracking shots.

In combination with a “patent-pending quick-release plate”, the slider is supposed to correlate particularly well with the company’s own slider engine “Genie II”. The Magic Carpet Pro is also compatible with controllers from other manufacturers. In addition, the setup can be extended by elements in steps of 60 and 90cm.

The variant with 60 centimeters length costs around 1130 euros. The version with 90 centimeters rail 1267 euros and the combo kit with both elements is available for 1690 euros.
