Item description

Prevention of lens reflections
With the Matte Box by walimex pro you can shield your camera from sunlight during shootings, and therefore prevent lens reflections (lens flares). 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. The matte box includes 4 donuts (neoprene rings) which prevent disturbing incidence of light. Suitable for lenses with a diameter from 49 up to 100mm.

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 6cm. 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.
