Matthews 149556 overview

  • 1Description

Open End Frames are made of spring steel with a 3/8" pin and support which can be used to hang the Scrim from the C Stand handle when not in use.

The two upright arms of the frame are slotted at the two open ends to retain the piano wire woven through the fabric to make up the fourth side of the frame without causing a shadow.

Open Ends are used to control or manipulate light falling on certain areas of the set or subject. They can be used to soften or reduce light without a noticeable edge. A color coded binding is used around the frame to identify the fabric.

Open End Frames are black powder coated to minimize unwanted reflections.

Matthews 149556 reviews

Open End Scrim - 24x36" - White China is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slightly less dense than artificial silk I use this silk to diffuse a 1024 CAME-TV LED panel. I purchased this scrim because I wanted something less dense than the matthews artificial silk (yellow border item). It is marginally less dense in that it allows maybe a 1/3 of a stop more light through as compared to the artificial silk. Very satisfied with the product, but was expecting it to not cut as much light. After placing this in front of the light I still need to adjust my camera by two stops to keep the correct exposure. This would be much less of an issue with a more powerful light; guess LED's don't punch through fabric too well. I would still recommend this with any light combination. Though might be faster and cheaper shipping to just order the matthews artificial silk: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/32801-REG/Matthews_149566_Open_End_Scrim.html

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what I need. For now I mostly use this to provide the bounce that I want off of my one light set up. Combining this with a c-stand and boom works really well!
