Product Description

Prevention of lens reflections

With the Matte Box you can shield your camera from sunlight during shootings, and therefore prevent lens reflections. This ensures professional film results. The degree of shielding can be freely selected, by adjusting the three movable barn doors individually. That way it is also possible to use them in combination with wide angle lenses.

Swing-away mechanism for quick lens changes

A swing-away mechanism allows quick lens changes. For this, you can simply fold the front part of the matte box to the side.

Two filter trays

Two filter trays with removable filter holders allow the use of 4x4 or 4x5.6 filters. Both filter trays are rotatable by 360 degrees. The filter holders can be locked into position. Additionally you receive two filter frames with inner dimensions of 9.6x9.6cm.

Compatible with DSLR rigs with 15mm rods

The lens hood is compatible with all DSLR rigs with 15mm rods at a distance of 60mm. It is mounted on the rods of the rig and locked into place. In order to adjust the Matte Box optimally to the used camera and lens, it can be adjusted in height.

Specification:

For Rail Diameter: 15mm
For Rail Center-to-Center distance: 60mm
Four different sizes neoprene donut rings (openings diameter in 51mm, 64mm, 76mm and 102mm)

Package Include:

1x Matte box M2

Looking for a Matte Box to use with your industry standard 15mm rails? Don't want to shell out an arm and a leg to get it?

BUY THIS!

With Amazon Prime this is 1/5th the price of competing products that use the same blue and black color scheme. The build quality is great -- particularly for a Chinese clone. Note, there are no assembly instructions in the box and if yours comes like mine did, the mount will be assembled completely upside down requiring you to tear it down and reassemble it. But to me, that's part of the fun of getting something like this. Also note that in the picture above the side flags are installed upside down. (The lip part should be at the top -- as the hooks on the sides that attach to the box itself provide a more secure fit with the lip at the top of side flag.)

Another issue that I've encountered -- though relatively minor -- is the sizing of the donuts which help to prevent light leaks through the back of the box. The issue is that sometimes the donut pops out. That can become a major issue if you're using any kind of filter which will show a reflection of your surroundings in your resulting footage. But as long as you and any of your crew keep an eye on that, it shouldn't be an issue.

Speaking of filters. The filter trays aren't exactly the best in the world. The spring-loaded catch designed to hold filters in place is only nominally effective. I've got a resin ND filter which stays in place reasonably well as long as you put the 4x4 filter between the tray and the 4x4 matte screen. If you don't, it tends to slide around. Heavier glass filters tend to do this more and might require a little bit of tape to hold them in place, especially if you think you might be doing any lateral movements -- which really, you probably won't be.

Decent construction, basically RR Micro for half. Filter trays are soft plastic, and don't really hold filters, however - sort of the point, I would think! I had to modify them with a little silicone and cutting to work at all. Cut the right side rods which even still obstruct right side focus pull. Bad design if you ever need to put the FF on the right, but that's the fault of the guys who designed the original for this copy.

This Matte Box is built like a tank, apparently the exact same product as RR Micro but way cheaper. I was looking for a Matte Box that would last a long time and that I could use for many years (and cameras) to come, and this piece of equipment definitely fits the bill. I haven't really used the filter holders yet and can't say anything about them; the swing away arm can be a bit difficult to open and I wish it would lock on the other side, but altogether great product and value. Highly recommended!

This is a great price for this well built unit. my only complaint would be is that it is VERY big, too big for DSLR. very heavy and therefore unwieldy.
