    Formatt Hitech FM-600 reviews

    FM-600 4x4 Matte Box is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Matte Box ! This is a great Matte Box. It is a great buy for the money. I use it with a sony A55 with a cavision support system. It also works well with my Sony EX1R without any rail system. The LCD swings out without hitting the matte box. Matte boxes do not have to cost much more than this. It has two filter holders with one rotating. I am a professional event and independent film artist. Check this item out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money Great little matte box for the money. Works great on my XL1s for just filters and contrast. I'd never use this box for anything other then filters. The rotating holder is hard to get to and is a little strange. There is also a random screw I can't figure out what does.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Open filter trays The matte box is well built, but the open filter trays are a deal breaker for me, talk about light leak...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and inexpensive... good buy. Great and easy to use. I'd give it 5 stars if Formatt sold an adapter to mount it on a 'rod system ready' swing away arm. Otherwise, great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a lightweight setup This mattebox rocks, well built, light and functional. I do wish the filter trays were closed, and hat it had provision for side flags. Other then that, its rad. I use it to shoot skiing and it doesnt add much weight at all, which is key in that environment.
