I was stuck between a dolly, slider or crane for my first investment in large equipment and realized that I could get a lot of the shorter movements of a dolly or slider with this crane just by adding a fluid head. $500 total out the door (I added the tripod, monitor bracket, and carrying case) plus another $270 spent for a Manfrotto 502 fluid head and weights (for counterbalance) is a great value for what I paid. Adding a $650 motorized pan/tilt head would bring me to only $1,420 invested - roughly the cost of a decent motorized slider alone! Build quality for the money was to be expected as the mount feels just a bit wobbly. Mine arrived with a broken plastic knob but the following Monday I called customer service and a replacement was sent out before the end of the day. I'm truly excited by what this crane allows me to do and with a future dolly add-on ($199) it's going to really help me differentiate my work from other amateurs that are just starting out.
