Cavision MB4169 Reviews

Great Product for the $

By Chris
Rated 4 out of 5

I have always been a fan of Cavision matte boxes and have used them for 8 years. This is an excellent matte box for the money. It is adjustable up and down and the French flag can be locked in position. It also comes with one 4 x 5.65 filter holder and two 4 x 4 filter holders. I had to flip the 15mm rod mounts 180 degrees to be compatible with a DSLR but not a draw back at all. What keeps this item from getting 4 stars is the price of 4 x 5.65 filters. You only need the 4 x 5.65 filters if you're shooting super wide angle. Also this item does not come with donuts to block out the light.

Non User Friendly

I purchased the Cavision Mattbox to use it with my 5D Mark II rig, and I find it not user friendly at all. - It is very difficult to control the upper shades. - Side shades do not exist. - It is not sturdy enough and it causes rig instability. Otherwise, the filter sliders are great and the eiders 5.65 feature is brilliant specially with the grad filters.

honest product

works great with eos 5D mark II and cavision shoulder support, but it seems a bit fragile compared to other Matte boxes we use like petroff and redrock. The actual product we received is different from that picture above, the top french flag didn't come with the package and the part that attach the matte box to the support rig is missing or not mentioned in the description.

Great for the Price

I use this on my DSLR for independent film and commercial spot production. I think it's great quality for the price but there are a few things to watch out for. for starters let's take the cons, there is a gap between the 2 filter stages that looks to be the result of poor construction. If you press on the stages you can get the gap to disappear but it can open up again during use. The rotating stage also does not line up properly with the front of the mattebox meaning a graduated filter won't properly line up with the horizon. Another thing I didn't like about it is the thumb screw for the side flaps has to be tightened with a pair of pliers because you can't get it tight enough by hand to hold the flaps in place. the pro's: aside from what I meantioned above it's a pretty solidly built mattebox and looks like it will stand up to a lot of abuse.

Necessary and at a low rate.

I use this as a complement for my Canon D7 equipment.

question

Will this fit (i.e., clear the overhead handle/built-in mic section) the Panasonic AG-UX180 camera?
Asked by: Dale
We feel that the low overhanging mic on that camera could be a potential issue, but there should be enough room if you insert the rotating filter tray from the bottom instead of the top. Also, you will need a support system to use the Matte Box with the UX180. B&H number CARS15IIMQRB is a baseplate set up that has the Matte Box holder included.https://bhpho.to/2j2qjoF
