    Movcam MOV-301-0205 reviews

    MOV-301-0205 Mattebox MM5 (2 Rotating Filter Holder) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value & Quality Received my MM5 a short time ago, so please consider these my initial thoughts. A very good mattebox for the money, and solid build quality. Seems like a very good mattebox to be able to send out on rentals, as it will stand up to the wear and tear of daily life on set. I chose this mattebox because it accepts larger filter sizes, 3-stages, and swing away function. I wanted this to give the greatest flexibility for different lens packages. For this feature set, and build quality, it's a very good value. Cons: The MM5 is heavy. Not a big deal for shooting on tripod, but going handheld for an entire day could become an issue. Also, when I received the MM5, the filter stages were difficult to rotate. I ended up taking apart the filter stages, and putting a small amount of lubricant (mineral oil) on the rotating elements. I rotated the elements to work in the lubricant, and then thoroughly cleaned off the excess. Now the filter stages turn MUCH more smoothly. I wanted to share this so that others would not get discouraged if they encounter the same thing with their MM5. Overall, great build quality and feature set for the money; I gave it just 4 stars because of the weight and the minor, easily-fixed issue with the filter stages. In reality, I would give it a 4.5 if possible.
