Meet Magic Carpet Pro and Genie II, Syrp's New Slider and Motion Control Device
Syrp unveiled its new slider, as well as a revamped Genie motion control head, which adds panning and tilting.
The Magic Carpet Pro is extendable, can handle up to 50 lbs., has a quick-release system, and has a hidden flywheel built directly on the carriage, which can be switched on and off. This feature makes slow camera movements with heavy cameras a breeze. The 2' short track costs $989, the 3' medium track costs $1099, and the long track kit, which comes with 2' short and 3' medium tracks is $1469.
Complete reconfiguring its popular motion control device, Syrp has added a pan/tilt module and a linear module to Genie II. It can handle a 15 lb. payload, has removable batteries, an integrated joystick that allows you to complete camera moves by hand, and has a max speed of 3.2 feet (1 meter) in 6 seconds, which is about 4x faster than its predecessor. The linear module costs $899, the pan/tilt module costs $1599, and both together cost $2498.
Both the Magic Carpet Pro and Genie II will be shipping in June.
