Matthews Open End Scrim 24x30" Overview

Open End Frames are made of spring steel with a 3/8" pin and support which can be used to hang the Scrim from the C Stand handle when not in use.

The two upright arms of the frame are slotted at the two open ends to retain the piano wire woven through the fabric to make up the fourth side of the frame without causing a shadow.

Open Ends are used to control or manipulate light falling on certain areas of the set or subject. They can be used to soften or reduce light without a noticeable edge. A color coded binding is used around the frame to identify the fabric.

Open End Frames are black powder coated to minimize unwanted reflections.

Matthews Open End Scrim 24x30" Reviews

Perfect Fresnel Modifier

I needed to take the edge off my Speedotron/Desisti fresnel. 1/4 silk is pretty thin, however you can lay a 20 x 24 sheet of Rosco 1/4 tough spun over the Matthews frame and get greater diffusion. Don't stop there, lay more diffusion down for more effect. By using a variety of diffusion material and having the frame away from the fresnel at various distances you have a lot of control over light size and shadow contrast.

Excellent product.

These Matthews are worth the extra expense when compared to other brands. They just look and feel more rugged and they last much longer.

As described.

Love the red fabric to identify the scrim's exposure value. Very durable and well-made.
