Most of that cost is the fluid head for video/film equipment and them ain't cheap. Moving 50 lbs of camera as smoothly as butter in order to get quality footage is going to cost you. I have a Cartoni fluid head that cost over $1K and it was used, not new, and I think it's limited to 28 lbs or something like that.
