A slider built to withstand the demands of professional filmmaking. Magic Carpet Pro has been designed to produce supremely smooth tracking moves with heavier camera loads.
The Magic Carpet Pro gives filmmakers a professional, fluid and supremely stable slider experience. Built to withstand heavier camera weights of up to 32kg / 70lbs, the Magic Carpet Pro brings with it the tool-less set up of the original Magic Carpet with the added benefits of an integrated Flywheel, a patent-pending Quick Release System and the ability to connect multiple Tracks together for longer tracking movements.
You don’t necessarily need a slider. But like anything in your kit bag that produces a better shot, you often wonder later how you lived without it. The high-end movie business realised very early on that a good moving shot usually beats a static one. They spend millions on cranes, dollies and track equipment and then repeatedly go through all the logistics of getting this sometimes huge equipment in place. All this in the pursuit of smooth and precise camera movement - even if the shot only lasts a few seconds! Believe me they wouldn’t put themselves to this trouble without a good reason.
