Newly designed 90° Cutter frames will make it possible to position the instrument over the top of the set wall or to use two or more units to create a box for better light control.

        Rigid frame is great for in studio use. I use it primarily for shooting large furniture products to cut cross shadows from my background light. Really great product and is built to last.

              I bought 2 for a small studio, Great size for location shoots. I use these when backlighting athletes during studio shoots, works great for blocking light from unwanted areas of my subjects. Also good for preventing lens flare.

              • General Use
              • Indoors
              • Use with soft box

              Comments about Matthews Cutter - 18x48":

              I use this cutter to remove unwanted light fall off from a lage continous light source soft box. It would also work well with flash heads too. Working somewhat light an egg crate on a soft box, this cutter can be positioned next to the light and its lengh is good to fit along the sid eof the soft light, much like one flap of a barn door. I use several of these and have two of them permantly on c-stands in my studio. Don't let hot lights get too close - the fabric of this cutter may be fire ressitant but it will burn.
