The S.O.S. utility plate allows you to keep your Steadicam dovetail attached to the camera and snap directly onto any head. The plate fits all PRO and XCS camera dovetails. The plate pictured is a demo version and has not been anodized. The final product will be anodized black. The holes in the plate are 3/8. Its a great utility plate to have in your kit. All of us have been on jobs where we have been asked to 'just hold it for a few shots because converting to studio mode takes too long; and the next scene is Steadicam anyway.' Having the ability to pop on and off helps you win this battle.

Very similar to Baer Bel's Cat Griller. A handy piece of kit.

Panavision also has the "Rivetti" plate which is similar to the cat griller and the Klassen plate I had Walter make for me

If it moves as much as the Cat Griller in the clamp Pete then I would hope it would work on the MKV plates. The Cat Griller certainly does.

These are great plates. Although what slows them down is all of a sudden needing to pull focus or put power on the batter. Sometimes its enough just the have your sled next to it with the cables coming across. Othertimes its better to just get a low-boy and pop the gimble on that. I'd recommend anyone have one of these plates though.

It is a lot like the "Rivetti Pasta Plate" which you can rent from Panavision product code RPP (which is a lot like the cat-griller or any number of other products except the RPP is designed so an Alexa w a 11:1 will balance on a O Connor 25-75)

The new price is $275 because of the new and improved safety locks.

Great plate, very rigid but still lightweight. Saves a lot of time during switches.

My ACs appreciate the effectiveness.

Plus Justin is great to deal with and responsive.

 

5 stars.

 

J.
