Matthews Open End Scrim 24x36" Overview

The 24 x 36" Open-End Scrim with White Artificial Silk from Matthews is 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.

I've recently purchased two of these and like everything else I've purchased with the Matthews name,....its well made and does EXACTLY what they advertised. As a side note: the 1/4 stop white actually measures 2-3 tenths reduction of exposure. Well made, reasonable cost, and I see this gear as a worthwhile investment. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Stained Silk

Ordered two of these, brand new. Both arrived with stains on the silk. Both scrims were taped together with cellophane on the metal. We spent several minutes removing the tape. The tape left behind a sticky residue as well that will need to be removed once we have some free time to clean the brand new equipment we purchased. Customer service is so difficult to deal with that it is easier for us not to return or make a complaint.

okay for the price

The first one that arrived had a few stains. But, thanks to B&H and their great customer service, I had it exchanged and received a clean one. A few days after its arrival, I had the opportunity to use it on a gig and it was just perfect for that shoot. The client was happy as well during our filming. The build quality is durable and if you take care of your stuff, it'll last a long time. I keep my artificial silk in a clear plastic bag and inside a large canvas/folding portfolio- each flag is separated by a light and thin foam board.

It says 1/4 stop silk but in the specs it says two stops of light. Which is it?
Asked by: Jamal
2 1/3 stop at most, depends on the distance of the flag and the light source.
