The C-450R2-LUMIXGH3 2-Stage Matte Box Kit with Follow Focus for Panasonic Lumix GH3 from Chrosziel includes the 450-R21 Dual Stage Matte Box with a top french flag, an AC-450-22 Flex-Ring flexible step-down ring (110:50-85mm), a C-401-433 lightweight support rod for Panasonic GH3 camera, and a C-206-60S-17 Follow Focus with 206-17 drive.
The 450-R21 Dual Stage Matte Box easily fits onto industry standard 15mm support rods and meets the requirements of shooting with compact camcorders and DSLR cameras, allowing you the ability to have greater control of light angles and lens flare. This matte box offers a double rotating filter stage, a 16:9 mask, two filter holders (one that can accept 4 x 4 and another that can be adjusted accepting 4 x 5.65" and 4 x 4" glass filters), a french flag, and pivot mechanisms for side wings (sold separately). The Chrosziel 450-R21 Dual Stage Matte Box also includes a bracket for 15mm support rods and a cover end plate with thread 114 + 110mm. The top french flag controls the angle of light and eliminates lens glare and flare and can be coupled with optional side wings for accurate light adjustment.
The follow focus is compact, light, and fits on the 15mm lightweight supports. Precise gears with practically no play and a single lock knob for extension and clamp makes changing of lenses quick and effortless. The hand wheel comes with a fine-structured surface for save grip. The scale is easy to change and the reference marking is adjustable for the operator or the assistant. Gear drives and gear rings for different lenses ensure precise adjustments and can be mounted without tool on both sides of the gear unit.
MB 450R2 Matte Box
Lightweight, robust, and ready for production, Chrosziel's MB 450R2 Matte Box can complement a wide range of cameras, from smaller camcorders or mirrorless cameras, up to larger cinema cameras and ENG camcorders with an outer lens diameter of up to 114mm (lenses with a diameter smaller than 110mm may require additional accessories for full compatibility). With the included top flag and 16:9 mask, glare from outside the frame can be effectively controlled for improved contrast and reduced ghosting in the recorded image. Further control can be achieved through separately available side and bottom flags.
Insert your favorite filters into the available stages for further creative control. The rear stage accepts 4x4" filters only, while the front stage will accept 4x4 as well as larger 4x5.65" filters. Both stages rotate, enabling the use and control of polarizing as well as graduated filters. For further possibilities, the MB 450R2 can be upgraded in the future with a separately available third rotating filter stage.
To use this matte box on your camera, the camera must be mounted on a separately available 15mm LWS baseplate. Fit the matte box on the rods until it covers the lens front. Rod-mounted matte boxes are preferred over clamp-on matte boxes in many production situations as they are always properly aligned with the image horizon.
