        Comments about Cavision MBF3 French Flag - For 3x3 Matte Box:

        Attaches to the Cavision MB385P 3x3 Matte Box via two small screws that screw into the soft plastic of the upper edge. Doesn't seem real secure but I've not had any problems yet.

        The flag is quite large and offers quite a bit of overhead light blockage. Swivels up and down to provide flagging at various angles and can swing all the way down to protect the lens when the camera is not running.

            Comments about Cavision MBF3 French Flag - For 3x3 Matte Box:

            I bought this with the Cavision RS816 rods system, RPSHC spacer, and MB385P matte box for my Sony HVR-A1U camera. The quality of all four Cavision items is very high. The flap clamps onto the matte box and has two adjustable screws. Mine was a little noisy (squeaks), needed to be lubricated, especially since it sits so close to the on-board mic. The placement of the mic (onboard shoe) does interfere with the flap somewhat, but there is a "sweet spot" where the flap can be lowered without impeding the mic and is still not visible in frame. The flag can also be lowered completely to protect the lens and filters.

              this is a great deal compared to what you would pay for an OEM hood. your best bet is to spend a few extra bucks and get the lens hood that matched up with it, they are a killer combo for the price. Worked great with my Canon J8ax15 sx12

                I am pretty much satisfied with the purchase of theMBF3 French Flag - For 3x3 Matte Box by Cavision... it adapted very well to the matte box for it was made... the look of the camera really makes an impression, looks more professional and protects from unwanted light glare... so i give it a thump up...
