The matte box itself is made out of ABS plastic, with aluminium used for the support structure. This provides a lightweight yet sturdy unit that is appropriate for shooting hand-held or with a stabiliser rig, when every ounce counts.
Swing Away Design
The swing-away design allows you to quickly move the matte box out of the way to cheque or change lenses, without having to remove the matte box from the support rods. This way you don't have to hand off the matte box to someone else, hold it under an arm or between your knees, or hang it under the rods while you work, greatly speeding your workflow and reducing the chance of dropping the matte box or having a filter tray fall out.
Rotating 4 x 4 Filter Trays
The matte box features two independently rotating 4 x 4 filter trays; this allows you to simultaneously rotate two filters, such as one polariser and one graduated filter, or even two graduated filters, for creative effect. The filter stages each rotate 90° and feature a tray locking knob, which allows you to adjust the height of the filter and lock it in place. This is a useful feature when using graduated filters in your matte box. The filter trays feature a centre detent, so you can easily position them exactly in the middle.
Top & Side Flags
- The removable top and side flags provide you additional flare control and attach to the matte box with a lockable hinged assembly. This allows you to precisely set your flags to match the edge of frame for different lenses and lock them in place so that they don't move during the shot.
- Each side flag is made from two pieces with a pivot point that allows you to pivot the outer flap approximately 45° providing additional height so that the side flags can butt up against the top flag when it is in a raised position. The outer flap of the side flags run in a track, and a locking thumb nut allows you to lock the side flags pivot adjustment.
The four included anti-reflection inserts work with your lenses. They provide a light-tight seal so that light from behind the camera cannot leak through where the lens joins the matte box and reflect off filters to flare your image.
