    Redrock Micro microMatteBox reviews

    microMatteBox Deluxe Bundle is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from This Matte Box does NOT support 142MM!!! I bought this Matte box because on the BNH website, it states that it supports lens up to 142 mm. It DOES NOT. The max lens opening is only 136 mm. Finally, after, several emails to RedRock Micro, they stated that it will only support 142 mm as an clip on matte box. So, I would have to buy additional parts: 1. Clip on adapter $$, and 2. Custom lens adapter $$. Plus shipping. The total is an additional 300 plus dollars-ouch! As for the matte box itself. well made with some plastic parts. I think, I will keep it but it would have really been nice to know the above information before purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price This is a great matte box bundle for the price. The flags and side panels are metal, which is nice. The mattebox itself is well constructed. My biggest complain are the few parts of the mattebox that are made of plastic. For example, the side segments where the two side flags fit in are plastic. One is a very tight fit and the metal shaves away a tiny bit of plastic when inserted. Also, the screw nobs are plastic. These are very minor issues compared to the overall value of the mattebox kit. You will be hard pressed to find this quality and features list on another matte box kit. I used a Zacutto mount/rod system to mount the mattebox, not the Redrock mount.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Studio Mattebox This mattebox has nearly everything you need to get started. the only things it's missing are: camera+rod system, and filters. Something to keep note of: this is a fairly big, heavy, mattebox. There are small, lightweight clamp-on matteboxes, but this one is meant to be used in a larger built-out rig, not when you're trying to be light and low-profile. That's less of a criticism, and more of something to keep in mind, because you should choose the right tool for each situation. If you need a full-featured, rugged mattebox, this is the one for you. if you need to stay light, nimble and stealthy, i wouldn't recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works - might be over kill for a dslr Build quality is top notch as expected from redrock. I have a couple issues that could make it even better. The donuts come in 2, 2.5, 3 and 4. I'm going to cut the 2 one to 3.5 to fit my lenses. I don't know too many people who have a lens that fits a 2 hole. I guess some really old cinema ones will. This thing is BIG. A little bigger than I thought but it's standard size, just a little over kill for a DSLR camera but works well. I wish the arm was a little more secure but I think this is my lightweight rods. I'm using this with a Zacuto Z-M-UB Mini Baseplate. It works, but a little tight to fit a follow focus in. Should work wonders with a full size camera. I have an XHA1 that I also use for this rig and it works great. No problems at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deluxe Bundle As usual, Redrock makes a sturdy and flexible matte box for the right price. You can adapt any lens with the correct accessories and has easy adjustment knobs and handles. The only downfall is that any Redrock Micro Mattebox kit does NOT come with the fitted foam anymore. They just package all the pieces into a box for shipment. This is disappointing because the foam would easily fit into a Pelican 1520 case. Alejandro from Redrock indicated this with a live chat I had with him. He referred to their pricey case with the fitted foam that they sell.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from sending it back I bought it for the swing away front as I'm often changing lenses. However, it does not clear the rods on my Sony F5. Redrock said I could buy a micro mini riser for an extra $225. Now, it's getting more expensive and less rigid. Not sure about the 4x4 filter adapters either. Redrock guy was nice not he phone but the product will not work as is with the sony F5.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing but too big This matte box is great. It has a great build quality and doesn't feel cheap. The filter trays are also well built and slide well. However the build quality comes at a cost. It takes up too much real estate on my rods and makes it difficult to mount a follow focus on prime lenses. Additionally it is incredibly heavy and is difficult to take apart so you would have to buy a pelican case for this. All in all it's a great matte box but it is very clumsy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of buck for the bang Don't be dissuaded by the headline. I love my Redrock Micro mattebox, but I do think that it is quite a bit more than its worth. I shoot on a Sony FS100 and 15mm rail system utilizing the Redrock Micro low-rise baseplate that is suggested for my camera. I use a Nikkor zoom and a Sigma macro zoom with my camera system. The donuts work just fine and the flags are sturdy. It takes a little bit of time to align everything, but that's to be expected so it wasn't a problem. It's built of sturdy plastic and the flags are powder-coated aluminum, which chips relatively easily along the edges. It's really easy to put together, mount and adjust. The biggest selling point for me was the swing arm. Most pro matteboxes with swing arms are approximately double the price or more, so even though I think it's too expensive, I consider the price point a fair deal at best. For something that's made completely from plastic (with the exception of hardware and flags), I think it should be a little bit less, especially considering that Redrock Micro panders to the indie market. All in all, it does its job and performs to expectation.
