    There are wheeled dollies that you can attach your tripod too. It wouldn't be hard to DIY one. Other options are: getting a studio stand, using a wheeled cart, using a sturdy table.....

    I did this. I'd say the material, other than the camera, cost about $1000. What greatly increases cost is adding flexibility. The single biggest cost in my system was a Velmex unislide. That let...

    All very true. Another option, one the Daniel Moore uses, is to clamp the lens around it's circumference. That way, the body can be removed without messing with alignment.
