does a "medium quality" dolly exist?
I've got a matthews dolly and some rigjobbed ride-on dollies with bazooka risers and they all work reasonably well for tracking. I've also worked with multi-100k panther dollies that are close to magical.
But what is there in between? Is there a nicely engineered dolly with some capacity for smooth camera rises/falls that is in the sub-$10k category? I've seen plenty of "really really beefy" track dollies for that price, but they didn't seem to offer any more than what I've got.
