The machining is very well done. It's very lightweight. The rings fit into various DSLR lenses. The price is right. HOWEVER: dumbest idea ever, to put the filter slot at the front edge of the shade. It's like the manufacturer does not know a thing about photography. The purpose of the shade is to keep light OFF the filter and lens. By putting it in front of the shade, you GUARANTEE getting flare on the image. So if you are doing a project where a flary image is desired, go for it! I kept it because it's actually an excellent alternative to the little round shades that come with various lenses. But it's useless for filters.

High quality and good price

Everything I wanted, rail mount is a little disappointing.

Matte box looks great and provides great protection for my lens. I'm not ready to invest the $$ for square filters and wish there was more room to adapt circular filters. I bought extension rings but my 77mm VND were to big. Have to buy a smaller filter. The rail mount doesn't have enough adjustability and sits too high in relation to the end of my lens on my rig. Can't ask for much more for $79 though.

Great, compact Matte Box!

It's really just an eyebrow for your lenses that doesn't work all that well. I bought it for my Canon C-70 and the lens adapter rings only work on a few of my EF lenses. However, this cute little rig attached to my 24-70mm zoom lens does make my C-70 look kind'a cool! I still like it a bunch, though. And I like Tilta because they make super cool budget tools that are mostly very useful.

It doesnt work well with a lens filter

When you attach a filter you get dark spots at the edge of the frame.

If I wanted to buy cover caps for these adapter ...

If I wanted to buy cover caps for these adapter rings so I can leave them on the lenses, what size would I look for? I see 85mm is the largest size to fit through matte box, but does that mean I’d look for 85mm cover caps or...? Thanks
Asked by: Tony
The outer diameter of the adapter rings is closer to 87mm, an odd size for lens caps. I tried the Kaiser 85mm push-on cap (BH #KALC85), but it was too small. Duclos makes an 87mm push-on cap, but it's like $65(!). I keep adapter rings on all my lenses for quick attachment of the matte box, but I currently have no solution for capping them when the box is off. Seems like an easy thing Tilta could manufacture.

Has anyone had a problem with reflections with this Matte Box with a filter installed?
Asked by: Elazar
You can have reflections with any mattebox that has light leaks. Those leaks can from in front or behind the MB. That being said this clip on shouldn’t have leaks from behind. Light could be leaking in around the filter since it’s a slide in type. Hard to know without more information regarding the actual situation when you encountered this.

Is there an option to mount a round filter stage in the back?
Asked by: MICHAEL
This support one 4 x 5.65" Filter. It may be possible to attach a filter to the lens itself with a filter thread, but that is not recommended and may not be possible with thicker filters.

Would there be a problem using this Matte Box on the Sony fe16-35mm zoom lens? There is a small inner barrel extention at the 16mm end of the zoom range... would the weight of the Matte Box potetially cause damage to the zoom barrel? Thanks
Asked by: Steve
There should be no issues using this with either the Sony 16-35mm F/2.8 or F/4. The F/2.8 has an 82mm filter thread and the F4 has a 72mm thread, which are both adapters that come in the box with this product.

I'm considering getting this for use with my Panasonic UX-90. Is there enough clearance over the matte box for the overhang of the built-in mic/handle?

I don’t have the UC-90 but I see the overhang. That might be a close call.

Yes you can, you just need the Tilta 85mm Adapter Ring for Mini Clamp-On Matte Box, BH #TIMBT1585. https://bhpho.to/3kIFxhk
