The MVA512WK-1 SYMPLA Flexible Matte Box Complete Kit from Manfrotto is a multi-purpose, flexible matte box solution. It features a collapsible rubber matte box, SYMPLA Variable Plate, and a pair of 12" scratch-resistant 15mm rods. The system is adjustable at several points for compatibility with various length lenses.

The SYMPLA Flexible Matte Box is an accordion-like rubber hood that is easily adjustable for a variety of shooting situations, including use with both wide and long lenses. It can even be pressed up against glass -- when you need to shoot through glass -- to block out reflections. It also protects the lens against knocks and scrapes and packs flat for easier transport. The matte box is equipped with two 4 x 4" filter holders, one of which rotates to allow a polarizing filter to be angled correctly.

The matte box sits on the Universal Mount, which attaches the matte box to the included scratch-resistant 15mm rods. The matte box can be moved back and forth along the rods and locked into position. The Universal Mount also has a bar on which the matte box can be adjusted vertically 50mm to align with lenses of different heights. A built-in hinge lets you slide the matte box aside 90° to allow for quick lens swaps.

Your camera attaches to the system using the included Variable Plate. The quick-release camera plate adjusts at a lateral axis to offset the camera from the plate's center, at a vertical axis to align the plate higher and lower, and that adjusts back and forth along the rods.
