The LWS & Matte Box MB450R2 Kit for Sony PMW-300 by Chrosziel is designed to mount the Sony PMW-300 camera. The kit is comprised of a 450-R21 dual stage matte box with french flag, a 401-450HD LWS 15 HD universal baseplate with 12" rods, and a 410-39 110:85 insert ring.

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.

Chrosziel LWS 15 HD Universal Baseplate with 12" Rods

The LWS 15 HD Universal Baseplate with 12" Rods from Chrosziel is a universal 15mm rod support plate featuring a pair of 15mm rod clamps and 12" rods. The plate is adjustable for any camera with an optical height between 26.5 and 72.5mm. Optical height is the distance between lens center and camera bottom. Height is adjusted using the included 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16mm spacer pairs. Also included is a set of screws, a guide with camera height reference marks, and an Allen wrench.
