So I have a ton of low mode with a Red in my immediate future.

Of course using the ET cheese plate up top.

PRO 2, so no groovy built in tilt plate like the Ultras.

Not used one before, but I love the idea of using the Hill 435 bracket to adjust the tilt angle instead of
tilting the sled...

Can the the camera end of the bracket bolt to the ET Cheeseplate, or is it based on that 435 handle
dovetail and otherwise non-usable?

Thanks for any guidance

While I have one I am not looking at it but I would say it would not work.

The Hill 435 Low-mode bracket is specially designed to be attached to a Arri 435 and has rudimentary attachment point only found on the Arri 435...


I would try:

Go to products page 18 and check out the "Dogcatcher"


Good Luck.

I have a low mode cage of sorts made by actionproducts that has the ability to tilt. It would probably work for your needs. My gear will be back in LA on Monday if you want to check it out.

Thanks for the clarification - as I feared.

Definitely want to avoid cages if possible, and I will check out the dogcatcher tilt plate.

Have the George Clinton riff in my head now... " Do the dawg catcha!"

Hey Erwin, miss Mt. Shasta at all?

Holy Crap... They actually let anybody join theses days...

Sorry... didn't make the name connection... mush as brain, you know.

When did you get into the Steadicam Game?

Welcome to our Humble Forum.

Any Questions... You have my number.

Later,

Erwin


PS: I might have something to tie you over, until you get something that you like. We'll talk.
