Features

Engineered with the filmmaker in mind

The Magic Carpet is the perfect lightweight slider solution for manual tracking shots which comes motion control ready. With quick release adjustable legs, a counter weight roller for vertical shots, and high precision ball bearing rollers, the Magic Carpet is ready for quick setup and precision filmmaking.

Buttery smooth camera moves

With a full roller bearing carriage and lightweight construction, the Magic Carpet slider is extremely portable and is an essential tool for smooth manual tracking shots all the way from entry level DSLRs up to Red Epics.

Motion control ready

Add amazing production value to your films! The Magic Carpet comes motion control ready with integrated rope attachments for the Genie. Shoot ultra smooth motion control time-lapse and real-time video with minimal setup time.

Lockable brake

The Magic Carpet Carriage comes equip with a lockable brake for safe transport and portability.

Vertical operation

Use the integrated counterbalance system to lift heavier camera setups vertically. Combined with the Genie you can achieve smooth upward and downward motion control moves.

Quick release legs

The Magic Carpet comes with fully adjustable ‘tool-less’ quick release legs – enabling quick-setup – that also fold away for transportation. Precise levelling is achieved using the feet for fine height adjustments.

Tripod mountable

Mount the Magic Carpet straight onto your tripod legs or tripod head using either the
1/4″ UNC or 3/8″ UNC thread. Both the short and long tracks come with multiple mount points to attach your tripod(s). Use one tripod in the centre or two at either end (recommended) for greater stability and heavier payloads.

Interchangeable carriage end caps

The end caps & carriage are universally designed to be interchangeable between the short and long length tracks. This enables the flexibility to easily upgrade to a longer or shorter length track without the need hiring another full slider system.

Reversible camera thread

The Magic Carpet comes with a reversible thread so you can quickly switch between a 3/8″ UNC thread and a 1/4″ UNC thread. This allows for either attaching a camera straight to the slider or using a ball head or tripod head for larger video cameras.
