Wooden Camera Zip Box Pro Overview

  • 1Description

The clamp-on Wooden Camera Zip Box Pro 4 x 5.65" Matte Box for lenses with an 80mm front fills out the Wooden Camera matte box lineup, fitting in neatly between the UMB-1 line and the original rubber Zip Box. A lightweight yet durable matte box with interchangeable mounting systems, the Zip Box Pro accepts up to three 4 x 5.65" (Panavision-style) filters without the use of filter trays. If reflections from light sources in frame are a concern, they you can tilt up to two filters in the matte box to help move the reflections out of picture area.

This clamp-on matte box comes with an 80mm clamp that allows you to mount it directly onto your lens. The clamp-on backs are interchangeable, allowing you to work with lenses of different diameters or convert the Zip Box Pro to a swing-away matte box. It is recommended that you use a lens with a non-rotating front when working with a clamp-on matte box. An included carbon fiber top flag helps block veiling glare or bright reflections from striking your lens, and can be folded down to cover the front of the matte box and provide protection to the front of your lens.

The clamp-on Zip Box Pro attaches directly to the front of a lens using dedicated backs of 114, 110, 104, 100, 95, 87, 85, and 80mm.
An optional Swing-Away back enables making your Zip Pro into a swing-away matte box.
Backs can be swapped using four thumbscrews.
Tilting filters move highlight reflections out of your image area.
Filters are loaded from the front of the matte box and are securely held by a spring-loaded latch.

    Wooden Camera Zip Box Pro Reviews

    Zip Box Pro 4 x 5.65- Matte Box (80mm, Clamp-On) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Run & Gun Matte Box Out There! Let me start off by saying that Ive tried quite a few light weight matteboxes out there. Namely the Bright Tangerine Misfit Atom and the Tilta MB-T05 Swing Away. If youre looking at the Zip Box Pro then chances are, youre considering the other two Matte Boxes as well. Theres a few key reasons why I chose and STAYED with the Zip Box Pro vs the other two: 1. Its VERY VERY light weight, but doesnt feel flimsy. The Bright Tangerine is way too flimsy, and the Tilta MB-T05 still isnt solid (though it is more sturdy than the Bright Tangerine). 2. It uses 4x5.65 filters -- lower chance of vignetting when using wider focal lengths with your matte box. 3. Top/french flag is included (Bright Tangerine does not, you must buy it). 4. Versatility -- you can purchase the backplate that allows for Swing Away installation (which I tend to use if Im not on gimbal, as it provides more lens support) or screw on the clamp on back, so that the matte box installs directly around the outer diameter of the lens without the requirement of support rods. Quality design, premium feel (considering weight), very practical features, and ultra light weight and compact. Ill eventually picking up another one for my B-Cam!

    Does this matte box also take 4 x 4" filters?

    Does this matte box also take 4 x 4" filters?
    Asked by: Joel
    The filter slots of the Zip Box Pro will hold a 4x4 filter, but may not completely cover the lens. If you have been using 4x4 filters on your current lenses with adequate coverage they should function similarly.
