            While it's lightweight, it does the job. Skip the optional french flag though, it's too flimsy.

            I purchased two of them from Cavision for my Panasonic 370s. I received two slightly different sizes. When I called Cavision and explained the problem no one was willing to help. Furthermore the design and attention to tolerances is less then marginal.

            Comments about Cavision MB4512-H2 4x5.65 Hard Shade 16x9 Matte Box:

            [...] we today received the 4x5.65 matt box, French flags and side flags.Our impression is that sloppy design and workmanship define this product.The matt box is the best of the lot. The filter stages and box itself are fairly well made of heavy plastic. However, the side mounting holes for the side flags were only taped through on 4 of the 8 holes. We are now considering if we should tap them, or return the side flags. [...] Also, the mounting system is exceptionally flimsy. The mounting hinges are not well secured. The design is simply skimpy and poorly engineeredThe French top flag does not mate well with the lock on the matt box. The hinges are fine.We purchased this primarily as a light-control system. It will probably work satisfactory for that. Nevertheless Cavision needs to revisit their quality control and product design.
