I own a Dana Dolly, and have used it with all kinds of cameras. Probably the heaviest rig was an O' Connor 2575 with a fully tricked-out RED MX and a Cooke 25 - 250mm zoom on it. I have been very pleased with the results, especially as the Dana system is pretty inexpensive. I use it with 10' lengths of steel electrical conduit as track. You have to make sure that the ends and particularly the middle are well supported, but it's capable of some very smooth moves. The whole system packs into a flightcase which you can take as checked baggage on a plane, and electrical conduit is cheap enough that you can just buy it wherever you end up shooting.
