Does the MB-T12 has a safety latch or something that prevents the filter trays from falling if you forgot to lock them?
Asked by: Roei
Not really-- you do need to tighten the screws to lock them in, or it is possible that they'll fall out. This happened to me once. That said, they don't fall out *easily*, so you may be lucky.

How do I use a 77mm lens with this matte box?

How do I use a 77mm lens with this matte box?
Asked by: Anonymous
This matte box has 15mm rod support. With a lens of that size you would need to have the camera on a baseplate with 15mm rods.

question

What are the dimensions and depth from frame to lens mount?
Asked by: Christiaan
We believe you are asking what is the distance from front to the back of the matte box. Our guesstimate would be about 4 /10cm.

Will this mattebox fit a standard Arri LMB-25 tray? Will it work with a standard rota-pola for an Arri LMB mattebox?
Asked by: Drew
I have an Arri Rota Pola and it fits in this MB. I also have 2 Arri 4x5.65" trays. You can fit 1 arri tray with 2 of the tilta trays and maybe able to fit up to 2 arri trays with 1 tilta tray but the thickness of the arri trays is slightly greater so you will have to loosen other stages to accommodate.
