Built rugged for daily use on your camera rig yet lightweight for handheld, gimbal, stabilizer, or drone work, the Tilta Mirage Matte Box is a modular component system that clips onto 95mm OD lenses common in the film and digital cine fields. The matte box weighs about the same as a standard 4 x 5.65" glass filter, and it accepts Tilta's 95mm round filters with the included filter adapter. The modular design means you can configure the matte box to match your needs on a shot-by-shot basis.

The Mirage comes with a rigid hood and removable top flag for cutting glare and protecting your image from overhead flare. Four included lens adapters enable mounting the Mirage Matte Box on lenses with 67, 72, 77, or 82mm threaded fronts, and an included soft case helps to protect your matte box during transport and storage. An optional 4 x 5.65" stackable filter holder lets you mount 4 x 5.65" filters on the matte box. Additionally, you can mount an optional Tilta VND system for creating precise variable ND effects remotely. Other modular components, such as a top flag, dual circular filter tray, filter protector, and rubber hood for shooting up against windows, are available separately. An optional 15mm LWS rod clamp can be attached, allowing you to mount the Mirage on rods to take the weight off your lens or use lenses with rotating fronts.

Designed for the Wind
The matte box body has been designed to aid airflow with integrated vents that can reduce wind resistance and improve stability when shooting subjects at high speeds, such as in a car or on a drone.
Modular Design
The modular design allows you to configure your matte box in a variety of ways: from completely stripped down using only the 95mm filter holder with the lens clamp to adding a 4 x 5.65" stackable tray, the included lens hood, the included top flag, or swap the hood for an optional rubber hood. Additionally, you can add the optional 15mm LWS rod support, so you can mount the matte box to rods for handling heavier filter loads, such as the optional VND (variable neutral density) system.
95mm Circular Filter System
Tilta's 95mm circular (round) filter system proves coverage for lenses with up to a 95mm outer lens barrel diameter, and it provides significant weight savings over traditional filters as the circular filters weigh about 1/4 the weight of traditional 4 x 5.65" glass filters.
Filters
An optional 4 x 5.65" stackable filter tray can be added between the filter clamp and matte box hood, allowing you to easily add one or two 4 x 5.65" filters to the matte box.

Will this fit onto the DZO Vespids?
Asked by: Josh
Actually the Vespids do have an internal tread of 77mm! So it should work with the 77mm to 95mm that comes with the mirage!

Is this compatible with a Canon Rebel T3i if they have a EFS 55-250mm lens, EFS 18-55mm or 50mm lens?
Asked by: M
The Tilta Mirage Matte Box can be used with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR Camera (Body Only) mounted with the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens and the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens when adding the Tilta Adapter Ring for Tilta Mirage Matte Box (58mm). See the link below: https://bhpho.to/3KDxjqp The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens has a 49mm filter thread, and in order to attach to the Tilta Adapter Ring for Tilta Mirage Matte Box (58mm) like the other lenses, consider using a step up ring like the Sensei 49-58mm Aluminum Step-Up Ring.

With a S35 sensor like the BMPCC 6K Pro and a Tokina BH #TOTC1120EF will get vignette at 11mm?
Asked by: Jaime J
When you are using a lens that wide, you will likely get vingetting with the Tilta Mirage Matte Box. This is consistent with most other matte boxes and wide angles lenses. Tilta recommends staying at 18mm and above while using this matte box on a Super35 sensor.
