The 10 foot linear trolley setup

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This provides about 7 ft of motion, with the Manfrotto video tripod as shown. Fast setup, light, $8 total cost.
I keep the poles from separating by use of a few pieces of gaffer tape, also used for setting the pair of caster rollers on the tripod base into the track so that they don’t rotate out.

If you look closely, there’s also a mounted ball head for low-angle shooting at one of the base arms.
