The Manfrotto SYMPLA Flexible Mattebox is an unconventional mattebox that instead of the traditional French flag design, features an accordion-like rubber hood that serves many purposes very effectively. It allows universal compatibility with lenses from wide to long; it can be pressed up against glass -- when you need to shoot through glass -- to just about completely block out reflections; it protects the lens against knocks and scrapes; it packs flat for transportability.

The Mattebox sits on an included SYMPLA component called the Universal Mount, which mounts 15mm rods and takes the weight of the Mattebox onto itself and the rods, and by which the Mattebox can be moved back and forth along the rods until locked into position. It additionally has a bar on which the Mattebox can adjust vertically 50mm to align with lenses of different lengths and heights, and it furthermore has a hinge by which the Mattebox can be made to slide aside 90° to allow for quick lens swaps (please click on "More Images" above to see an example).

Like most matteboxes, the Flexible Mattebox is equipped with two 4 x 4" filter holders (one of which rotates to allow a polarizing filter to be angled correctly). But unlike in any other mattebox, the hood of the Flexible Mattebox is rubber, flexible, and can open partially or fully in just an instant.
