The new SYRP Magic Carpet Pro is a heavyweight slider with some style. Over the past few years, we have had a ton of options when it comes to sliders and options are now what sets them apart. No longer will a one-trick pony do. For video production, having the ability to add a motorized head that has a programmable parallax option for interviews so the subject stays in the middle while the camera slides back and forth is really great. For time-lapse shooters, they want all the fancy motion control settings to get those cool sweeping time-lapse shots, but it all starts with the slider and the SYRP Magic Carpet Pro is one smooth criminal. Cue Michelle Jackson!

The Edelkrone DollyPLUS and DollyPLUS PRO are an interesting new take on the dolly. The DollyPLUS and DollyPLUS PRO have been designed so that any tripod can be moved on flat surfaces. Now this isn’t a dolly you have to move, both the DollyPLUS models are motorized and move by themselves. This allows you to set up pre-programmed shots or have the DollyPLUS track all by itself. The benefit of a system such as this is that you don’t need any tracks.
The previously rumored Leica Q-P camera is now officially announced. Available in matte black exterior, the new model doesn't have the front-facing Leica red dot logo, but it has the classic script engraving on the top plate. The shutter release button and power switch/drive mode selector have been redesigned to be like the those found on the Leica M10 and CL. The Leica Q-P will be on sale beginning today at Leica Stores, Boutiques and Dealers for $4,995 (some stores already have it in stock today):
