Matthews B159015 overview

  • 1Description

To keep weight to a minimum and yet get maximum strength, all MSE Solid Frames are made of 3/8" thin wall tubing. The mounting pin is solid rod.

The 48" x 48" frames are made with two "ears" at the bottom to protect fabric when frames are slid in and out of their storage boxes or can be used as a point to tie off when used in certain conditions.

Solid Frames are black powder coated to minimize reflections.

Solid Frame Scrim - 48x48" - Black Artificial Silk is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great frame but has issues I really like the frames and diffusion panels. Works really well in a c stand. Its so much better than trying to hold the collapsible panels. The only problem is the yellow border around the frame. It shows on any reflective subject. Especially on chrome and polished silver subjects. I will try to put some white tape around it or spray paint the yellow. I cant imagine why they used yellow instead of white or even black??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Measure, measure, measure Bought for my home studio, but thought every once in awhile I can take it on location with my wagon. Works great at home...doesn't fit in the back of my car. I really wanted the road rags version because it collapses, but couldn't justify the cost...yet. Other than that it's a real rugged construction and works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Fine Scrim Very sturdy. I do wish they used white edges instead of yellow for those glossy subjects, but it's the best I can find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT VALUE Many uses. Can use as a defuser, reflector, or modifier. A great value for the $$. Easy to clamp other modifiers to giving it endless possibilities for use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Consistent Light Have used various diffusion material. This one finally moves me up to make really nice gradients.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Received damaged however kept it I did receive this damaged; definitely something that happened in shipping. We were able to bend the metal back enough that I can still use it even though the frame is clearly twisted still. B&H did do what they could to make things right and I thank them for that. So far it works as intended. I had expected to be able to bring this on location but is just slightly too big for my vehicle. It's for sure a great way to soften harsh sunlight when shooting outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOP NOTCH Purchased this for my product shots, it's exactly what I needed to diffuse the harsh lighting from my strobes. I based my decision to purchase this after hours of research and reading reviews. Without a doubt, Matthews is the way to go. THANKS!!!
