Built rugged for daily use on your camera rig yet lightweight for handheld, gimbal, stabilizer, or drone work, the Tilta Mirage VND Kit is a modular component system that clips onto 95mm OD lenses. The included variable ND system allows you to precisely adjust the ND effect from 1 to 9 stops when needed. 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 included rigid hood and removable top flag aid in cutting glare and protecting your image from overhead flares. Four included lens adapters enable mounting the Mirage Matte Box on lenses with 67, 72, 77, or 82mm threaded fronts. An optional 4 x 5.65" stackable filter holder lets you mount 4 x 5.65" filters on the matte box. 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.

Variable ND System
The included VND module enables you to precisely adjust the ND effect from 0.3 to 2.7 stops. The module has built-in hard stops between ND 0.3 to 2.7 to reduce the chance that the dreaded X-pattern shadow appears. The variable ND has no color shift for natural colors, and it has a larger axis between the filter elements. Tilta recommends that to prevent vignetting, use ND 0.3 to 2.1 for wide lenses and ND 2.1 to 2.7 for focal lengths beyond 35mm. The geared adjustment mechanism allows you to control the VND module using an optional motor.
Designed for the Wind
The matte box body has been designed to aid the 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 swapping 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.

Asked by: Matthew
No, the Tilta Mirage VND Kit does not cut IR on it's own, but you can add Vaxis IRND filters to the matte box to block out IR light. See: https://bhpho.to/3J5e2wv

The Tilta Mirage VND Kit (B&H# TIMBT16A) has a female 1/4"-20 thread in the bottom along with two locator holes on either side of it. As such, if you intend to mount it on 15mm rods then the most secure means to do so would be to use the Tilta 15mm LWS Support for Mirage Matte Box (B&H# TIMBT16LS): https://bhpho.to/3NfLdRh
