Matthews 169028T overview

  • 1Description

Cutters are square or rectangular frames with mounting pins attached. Used to control natural or artificial light. Can be used to protect the camera lens from flares, control spill light from other sources, or keep light from reaching an area on the set.

Floppies are Cutters which have an extra layer of material sewn to one edge and held in place with Touch Fastener until needed at which time the Cutter becomes twice its original size

Newly designed 90° Cutter frames will make it possible to position the instrument over the top of the set wall or to use two or more units to create a box for better light control.

Matthews 169028T reviews

48x48" Floppy Cutter - Top Hinge is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it is suppose to do I teach film and television production to high school students. I wanted to have a 4x4 floppy to give the kids some hands on experience working with C-stands and lighting gear on set. This 4x4 floppy is just as functional as any I've seen on set during my 25 years of experience. Only time will tell if the stitching will hold up but right now, it is in pristine condition and works exactly as a floppy should. I make a lot of my own grip and lighting gear but at the price I paid, I couldn't have made this myself for much less. Good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful outdoors The benefits of using this indoors is obvious, but it's really saved me on photoshoots outdoors. Whenever I rig an overhead silk, I keep one or two of these handy to either add negative fill or help prevent directional sunlight from entering the set, or both. If you find yourself thinking critically about lighting outdoors, you will find this to be an invaluable tool. If you are using it outdoors I would recommend using a sandbagged combo stand and a 4.5" lollipop grip head vs a c-stand and 2.5" grip head otherwise the floppy is susceptible to blowing over. Another note about wind: I've found it helpful to stop the hanging section of the floppy from blowing around in the wind by clamping a spare 40"gobo to it with 2 A-clamps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitale and usefull Very well made and can be used for so many applications. Works well as a courtesy shade for the camera or monitor outdoors or to block light from a doorway with no door or to control light on talent in front of green screen lighting. Even helps shield sound from annoying sources. Just set it up on a C stand to have it stand by and it will get use for something every time. One of the best valued tools on set. It's not lite but it covers a lot of space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't get any better than Matthews Cinema lighting is just as much about taking away light as it is adding light. These floppys are very convenient for controlling light as they double in size by detaching the velcro. A common use is negative-fill. You can't go wrong with Matthews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super versatile This is one of those items which once you use one, you will want to always have one available. I jump between Gaffing and Camera and I really appreciate the versitility of this product. Excellent sun shade as well as flag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty much what you expect Haven't had much time to use it yet, but seems pretty solid overall. The flap is attached by velcro and hangs loose, so wind might be a concern if using outdoors, but no complaints otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Stitching is durable and should last a long time. The 4x4 frame does not collapse so keep that in mind for transportation. Quality product.
