The 4x5.65 Matte Box Package from Cavision is suitable for the Panasonic AF100, Blackmagic Cinema Camera, and most DSLRs with lens diameters less than 100mm. This package includes a 4x5.65 hard shade clamp-on matte box, 120 to 100mm plastic insert ring, expandable top flap and a pair of side flaps, a donut-style adapter ring for lenses with 60 to 95mm diameter, and a swing-away component with 15mm rod support.

The matte box has a 120mm rear-mount opening that can be stepped down to 100mm via the plastic insert ring. It features two filter stages—one fixed and one 270° rotating, which is used with polarizing and graduated filters. The stages can accept a 4x4" or 4x5.65" glass or resin filter with a maximum thickness of 4mm (not included). The expandable side flaps and top flap block unwanted light and allow for maximum flare protection.

The swing-away component features a front bracket that attaches to the matte box. It allows you to swing the matte box away, providing easy access to the lens. It also adds a 15mm rod support to the matte box.

Note:
Does NOT include top french flap, side flaps, rods connection bracket, rods support system or step-down rings. For a complete listing of all components required for your camera setup please contact Cavision

Cavision ADU100-D50 Universal Donut Adapter Ring for 60 to 95mm Lenses

Cavision's Universal Lens Donut Adapter Ring snaps into select matte boxes with a 100mm rear opening and serves as an anti-reflection donut for lenses with an outer diameter between 60 to 95mm. It utilizes a flexible fabric that allows for lens travel so it is suitable for use with lenses that exhibit up to two inches of lens travel when focusing or zooming. The flexible fabric features a draw string and cord lock.

The flexible fabric provides an adjustable opening that you tighten to the lens to prevent light from behind the matte box flaring filters and degrading your image.

Lightweight

While it's lightweight, it does the job. Skip the optional french flag though, it's too flimsy.

I purchased two of them from Cavision for my Panasonic 370s. I received two slightly different sizes. When I called Cavision and explained the problem no one was willing to help. Furthermore the design and attention to tolerances is less then marginal.

Poor quality control and design

... we today received the 4x5.65 matt box, French flags and side flags.Our impression is that sloppy design and workmanship define this product.The matt box is the best of the lot. The filter stages and box itself are fairly well made of heavy plastic. However, the side mounting holes for the side flags were only taped through on 4 of the 8 holes. We are now considering if we should tap them, or return the side flags. ... Also, the mounting system is exceptionally flimsy. The mounting hinges are not well secured. The design is simply skimpy and poorly engineeredThe French top flag does not mate well with the lock on the matt box. The hinges are fine.We purchased this primarily as a light-control system. It will probably work satisfactory for that. Nevertheless Cavision needs to revisit their quality control and product design.

Will this Matte Box work on a panasonic AJ-PX270 camera?
Asked by: Yehoshua S.
It should work. You will have to also use a base with 15mm rods to support the mattebox. Here is a possibility of such a base. SHAPE Paparazzi Riser/15mm Rod System B&H # SHROD2

question

Hi all!Would this clamp onto a lens that has a 95mm filter thread? I don't know the actual diameter of the lens but it's the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS that's bundled with the Sony FS7. Thanks!Ron
Asked by: Anonymous
You can do this with two adapter rings. These rings will allow you to mount this matte box on your 28-135mm lens with no issue.
