The Compact LWS & MB450R2 Matte Box DSLR Kit by Chrosziel is designed to mount the Canon EOS 5D, Nikon D800 / D90, Panasonic DMC-GH3, and Black Magic Pocket cameras. The kit is comprised of a 450-R21 dual stage matte box with french flag, a 450-20 110:75 flexible step-down ring, a 450-22 110:50 flexible step-down ring, and a 401-453 LWS 15 HD DSLR baseplate with 12" rods.
Chrosziel 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.
