Hi Justin,
Never used the Catgriller myself, but I was under the impression that it fits on the tripod as an adaptor to receive the camera with your steadicam dovetail mounted, so that you do not need to switch dovetails and attached rods and accessories when changing modes.
It could be that I have got this wrong (having never actually used one)

Hi Justin

I have a catgriller, and it`s a great tool, but untill now I`ve never used the tilt plate.
I use a lot the catgriller in order to go to tripod and return to steadicam in 1 or 2 minutes.

Anyway, the catgriller only fit in my Baer-Bel topstage, but not on the Artemis or EFP (and I dont know if there is a Catgriller designed for other company, I mean Steadicam, MK-V, PRO, ultimate, etc etc etc)
Ask Markus in order to know: baer-bel@gmx.net

Best to all,

Gus

Guys,

Gus,

If the bottom plate doesn't work on ones sled, it seems that all one would have to do is switch the bottom plate with one that works with ones topstage. It seems like an easy switch.
I am wondering how rigid the system is when in the tilt position?, as well as how long it takes switch to the tilt position?

Thanks,

Justin

I think what Gus was trying to say is that the Cat Griller will only accept his Baer-Bel Dovetail plate, which is what I have been wondering also, if it would fit my Ultra2 Dovetail plate?

Hi Lawrence, Great to know that.

Anyway, is a great tool.
