I've had all the types that are out there and I personally like the Crayford the best. The thing you have to watch for is the extreme range of price. The really pricy ones, over 200.00, are very well made and very smooth, but I also like the JMI unit I have that was under 100.00. It required assembly(fun) and it really isn't intended to carry a camera for photography, but for the money it is as good as any other one out there.
