SHAPE MATT44 overview

  • 1Description

The SHAPE 2-Stage 4 x 4" Matte Box accepts lenses with up to a 100mm front outside diameter. It mounts to 15mm LWS rods and utilizes a swing-away design, which lets you perform quick lens changes without having to remove the matte box from your rods. You can adjust the height of the matte box in relation to the rods, which comes in handy when your lens center to rod center height is slightly off from the standard.

Two rotating filter stages support the use of 4x4" filters. The matte box comes with a top flag (eyebrow), side flags, four matte box donuts in 66, 72, 82, and 90mm sizes, and elastic donut.

The matte box has a rear opening of 100mm for lenses.
The included anti-reflection donuts prevent light behind the camera from reflecting off any filters in the matte box and degrading the image. Included with the matte box are anti-reflection donuts for lenses with a front outside diameter of 66, 72, 82, and 90mm. The included elastic donut supports lenses with a front outside diameter between 66 and 90mm, and it is especially useful with lenses that grow and shrink as you change focus or zoom.
The side flags incorporate a hook design as a safety feature where they attach to the matte box. This helps prevent them from falling out of the matte box should the lock-down thumbscrew loosen accidentally.
The swing-away bracket incorporates a height adjustment, enabling you to compensate a total of 0.65" vertically. This allows you to use this matte box with a variety of camera/rod support combinations that may vary slightly from the industry standard 85mm distance from LWS rod center to lens port center.

    SHAPE MATT44 reviews

    2-Stage 4 x 4" Matte Box is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SHAPE MATTE BOX I have long wanted a matte box, if for no other reason than to act as a maximum shield against flare. Because of the three bar doors, one on top and two on each side, this product does that job well. The build quality is very good, and includes several foam rings to help fit different lenses of various barrel widths. This will dovetail nicely with my SHAPE Composite shoulder-mount rig, which came with rails onto which this will slide. And it contains two filter holders, of course, as any matte box should. They rotate as well, making them useful for graduated filters. I find this Candian company to provide good quality products at the right price. Many matte boxes on the market today are very overpriced. Shape does not fall into that category. The device came needing a little assembly. However, there were no instructions. But a call to the company yielded a competent person who walked me through the final assembly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointed My expectation about this matte box was very high because the comments I saw from other buyers were positive, and also for the low price. First I have to say that this is a solid, well constructed matte box, but maybe the one I just received doesn't work.Three of four of the screws that attach the french flags to the matte box are completely stuck, not letting me attach this flags and use it properly. When I asked to B&H for a solution, they simply said that has passed too much time (three months). Why didn't I notice it when I bought it? Because I ordered this item from internet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pro Gear The Shape Matte 44 matte box is a great asset to my camera package. It is well built; very sturdy and tight. I am using it with a Sony FS7 and its adjustability allows it to fit perfectly. The swivel action easily allows for lens access and the filter holders hold firm. My only complaint is that the French flags fit a little loosely but otherwise I am very happy with my Matt44!
