Any opinions on camera cranes?

I am looking at:

I don’t like the cranes that use a wired pulley systems for controlling the camera.

The crane will need to carry a 7 pound camcorder.
Nikolai, thanks… I appreciate the feedback and insight. To you and others who may be interested, the “cable mechanism” that I don’t think I like is on http://www.cameracranes.us/ and a couple of others. It seems to be how the camera’s up/down control is maintained. The three I listed on the original post have a solid piece of metal, running parallel to the actual boom, controlling that camera motion.

Actually, my cameras (either a Sony HDR-HC1 or HDR-FX1) are under 7 pounds – closer to 5 pounds for the heavier FX1, but I agree with the “scariness” of putting my investment out there up to 12 (or more) feet away with a thumbscrew…

I like the “turnkey” ProAm because it comes with everything – so either THEY put it all together or I do – either way, it needs to be done.

I have a couple of light trees (which is the heavy duty ProAm tripod), so I don’t really need it from ProAm – but I need to connect the crane to that tripod… Whether Kessler or GlideCam or ProAm…

How does the Red Badge of Courage relate to Stephen Cranes Life?

I need to know how Stephen Crane came up with writing the Red Badge of Courage. I need examples of his life experiences that he had and then he put them in the Red Badge of Courage.

Can someone give me a good website which can provide hydraulic and electric schematics for cranes?

I need a web site for crane documentation. What I need, is a site, where from I can get, when needed, hydraulic and electric schematics for all kind of cranes (crane trucks, bridge cranes, etc)

Thank you,

How do they get cranes to the top of new buildings?

New buildings start – cranes is on bottom floor – two weeks later 5 floors are finished and crane is still on top – HOW DO THEY DO THAT ?

How do they get big cranes on top of high rise buildings?

I work in downtown Atlanta, and they are doing some kind of work on top of one of the high rise buildings downtown with a big crane. I was wondering how they got that heavy of a crane there to begin with? Thanks ahead of time!

How do they get the construction cranes up the sides of buildings as they increase the height of the building?

As a building gets taller, the crane is raised. How is this done? And when the building is done, how do they get the crane back down?

How do they put cranes on the top floors when constructing high Sky Scrapers?

You see cranes on the floor which rise about 50 metres, but sometimes, when building high sky scrapers, I see cranes on the 70th floor or the 80th floor. How do they put the the crane so high up there when it can only go up high around 60-70 metres?
