    Comments about Digital Juice Matte Box PRO:

    I use the Matte box for shooting video, it is great at helping you control what light makes it into your image. The thing that I most dislike about this is the thumb screw that is used to tighten the bracket to your 15mm support rails. it is very stiff and is hard to adjust, I am a bassist with very good hand strength and I find it to be a little difficult to tighten and loosen sometime. that would be my only complaint about this unit.

        Comments about Digital Juice Matte Box PRO:

        Anyone that thinks this product is high quality, has not used a real Matte box. I bought one of these from Digital Juice and I am very disappointed. Why you ask? Where should I start?
        1) The mounting system is super heady duty, but it takes super-human strength to secure it to the 15mm rods. The locking wingnut grinds away while trying to tighten it.
        2) The Mattbox sags to one side because the machining of the hinge side is not very accurate.
        3) The cheap plastic filter holders barely hold a filter and are difficult/clunky to rotate.
        4) The thing is too heavy.
        5) The hinge mechanism is sloppily built and allows the mattebox to wiggle too much.
        6) The lens side of the housing extends too far toward the camera, which means that the camera cannot get close enough into the box, killing your ability to use wider lenses. Also, the same housing is strangely large in diameter which causes it to interfere with your follow focus on medium to short lenses.
        7) The donuts are horrible and there is no real way to "lock" them into the back of the box.
        8) Takes an allen wrench to adjust the height of the box.
        9) No side-to-side adjustment possible, the mattebox physically cannot sit perfectly centered to the lens.

        Go with the Lanparte Matte box if you want something of equal cost but superior quality.

          Comments about Digital Juice Matte Box PRO:

          I'm using this with my Panasonic AG HMC40 and the Shape 15mm rod riser system. I've looked at several Matte Boxes and this is by far the most professional and the most affordable. Most matte boxes at this price range are just that "a box". Digital Juice Matte Box comes complete with adjustable flags and two filter holders. The box itself is durable plastic and the flags are metal and fully adjustable. The mounting system uses any standard 15mm rods and features a swing away hinge for easy access to the lens. Easily fits nearly any camera package. Has more features than some matte boxes at 2 - 3 times the cost. Couldn't be happier.

              The matte box was offset nearly 1/2 inch from center on its rail mount. With no side to side adjustment, any large lens would not fit in the opening.
