Mount the matte box onto your lens with 82mm filter thread directly using the included lens adapter, without support rods. The 82mm step-up rings allow you to use your matte box on a variety of lenses with front filter threads of 52, 58, 62, 67, 72, and 77mm. The included top flag assembly allows you to mount the top flag onto your matte box to act as an eyebrow, providing additional protection from veiling glare and point-source flares.

Genustech Adapter Ring for Select Clip-On Matte Boxes (82mm)

This Genus Adapter Ring for Select Clip-On Matte Boxes threads into lenses with 82mm threaded front, providing a 93mm diameter clamping surface for your Genus Matte Box Lite or Genus Wide Matte Box. Please note that this is not a filter-retaining ring. It is designed to mate your lens with a Genus Matte Box Lite or Genus Wide Clip-On Matte Box. It is made from anodized aluminum for strength and durability, and recommended for use with a lens that does not have a rotating front.

82mm threaded adapter ring features a 93mm outside diameter.
For use with either Matte Box Lite or Genus Wide matte boxes.
Use with lenses that have non-rotating fronts, otherwise your clip-on matte box will rotate as you change focus.

GML Kit Review

By Wyatt
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2018-09-26

I purchased the GML Kit about a month ago, after keeping my eye on it for awhile then suddenly having an opportunity to order it for a shoot. I ordered One Day shipping, to get it in time, and the Genustech team was excellent to work with to make that happen, and has continued to be with any questions I've had since. Since then, the matte box has worked great for my needs as a primarily mobile and handheld camera op. It is lightweight and compact, in addition to being quick to mount/unmount. A perk of this matte box compared to rail mounting matte boxes is that since I primarily use zoom lenses, the matte box remains at the front of my lens even as the zoom increases. One thing to be aware of is that since the matte box solely tightens down around the step up ring, it can be nudged and canted to a slight angle. Unless its nudged a lot to an extreme angle it won't cut into your frame any though, except perhaps on a super wide angle lens. For anyone who wants a lightweight matte box for a compact rig, I'd definitely recommend the GML Kit.

Would Purchase Again***

Very solid for the price. It holds a 4X4 ND filter as well, which is great when you're exchanging lenses on the fly. Just make sure you get the correct adapter for your lens as well. I love, love this matte box.

Excellent Buy

Purchased this for my Sigma 18-35 for lens matte box and it worked out extremely well. You can also place a 4x4 ND filter in the the tray as well. I didn't get the French as i should have, but I'll be placing the order for that next as well. Helps to have the flag to block out any unwanted sun flares on a bright day. Excellent buy!

Holds on to the lens way better than Wood Camera's version of a lite matte box. Just put it through a grueling week of run and gun shooting. Held up well. Looks professional, well made. Yes I would recommend!

makes focus ring heavier.

It is actually light as a matte box, but when you put it on lenses, it makes focus ring hevier. So better using follow focus I think at the same time.  And the nob for adapter ring is kind of tough somehow that I dont like it.

Will this matte box fit onto the Sony E PZ 18-110mm lens? I use this lens on my Sony FS7. It has a 95mm filter diameter.
Asked by: Jim O.
This matte box has 93mm diameter and is thus too small. This would be a great matte box. It is a clip on but convertible to 15mm rods later. It has a 95mm ring included. Bright Tangerine MISFIT ATOM 2-Stage Matte Box Kit with Three Clamp-On Rings B&H # BRB12301007K (B&H Kit)

Can I use the tiffin variable filter with this Matte box either on the lens or integrated into the 4x4 with adaptor?
Asked by: Joseph
You can first attach the variable filter to your lens. From there, use the proper step up ring (included) to 82mm. From there you can attach the matte box.

question

Will this matte box work with the Rokinon DS Cine lenses?
Asked by: Samuel H.
This matte box will work with all lenses with the following caveats: 1. It will probably not work (meaning vignetting) with APS-C sensor cameras and lenses wider than 18mm or with Full Frame cameras and lenses wider than 24mm. If you need to go with wider lenses, you will need a 4 x 5.6 matte box and corresponding filters.

question

The adapter rings show that the outer diameter is 105mm. Is it possible to get another brand step up ring with the same specs to clip on with or is the adapter proprietary?
Asked by: howard k.
There is a very specific shape to the 105mm edge of the adapter. We therefore must recommend that you use adapter rings designed to work with with Matte Box Lite. Follow this link to all Genustech adapter rings we sell. http://bhpho.to/1Y6MMjj
