Tilta MB-T05 overview

  • 1Description

The Tilta 4x4" Lightweight Matte Box easily mounts onto 15mm rods via its rod adapter. It features two 4x4" filter holders. The lightweight construction adds very little weight to your system, and the swing-away design moves the matte box out of the way during lens changes, without having to remove the matte box from the rods.

The back of the matte box features a 114mm opening for lenses, and it comes with 80 and 95mm diameter lens adapters, and a fabric donut (Nun's Knickers), for use with smaller diameter lenses. The lens adapters and fabric donut are used to prevent light from leaking from behind the lens and reflecting off filters and flaring your image. The matte box features a removable top flag (eyebrow) that attaches to a hinge so you can precisely set the flag at the edge of your frame to block light sources from flaring.

15mm rod adapter easily mounts onto industry-standard 15mm camera support systems

    Tilta MB-T05 reviews

    4x4" Lightweight Matte Box is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Great mattebox. It is a bit limited since it isn't compatible with side flags (ears) but most of the time all I need is the eyebrow anyways. Other than that this guys is awesome. Some might shy away because it only holds 4x4 filters, but you really don't need anything bigger than that unless you rock anamorphics. And if you can afford anamorphics then you can afford to rent out top level matteboxes. I love this mattebox, no complaints! Honestly I've become a big fan of Tilta over the years. For a Chinese company, they don't live up to the cheap Chinese stigma. Their products are at a very competitive price and they've always been well made and good investments.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price but... I bought it 7 months ago and used it every week for a tv show I am shooting for Fox business. We are on the road constantly and the matte box is transported in a pelican case. It is a solid built mattebox except the connection of swing door to the metal bar that the rods go through. There are two small (half and inch ) hex screws holding a heavy metal closure. They gave up last week. I am planning to use to drill new screw holes and use longer screws. Overall very happy how it handled the last 7months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Regrets I bought the Redrock Micro Matte box when it was in the Deal Zone and was really excited. It came, I set it up and it had some glaring issues. For one, it was clunky and too big. But most of all, the design didn't allow me to have great positioning of the center of the box with the lens/camera. So i returned that and bought this. It was cheaper (than the regular price) but I saw that in the design, it seemed like it had greater flexibility in regards to the positioning of everything. I assumed correctly. It's awesome. Every piece of it I actually love. Much smaller and lighter but still has a huge opening for big cine lenses. Plus, it uses 4x4 filters rather than the bigger filters the RR used. I love it. One of my favorite buys in recent history.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good fit Using this matte box with my C100 and L lenses. Does what I need for my budget. I am pleased with the quality. I also have the Tilta focus assist too which is equally well made. I am happy with this line of accesories.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly robust, great value I was surprised when I opened the box to find such a robust kit. Overall this is a fantastic value! The only weak spot is the actual matte box, which is thin, bendy plastic. Probably not a big deal because that part isn't usually subjected to abuse. The filter holder and swing away bracket are both high quality and seemingly durable.The kit, overall, is quite heavy, which I like.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product minor flows I have been using it on the field for a month and generally very happy with it. It fells solid. Swing arm is not heavy and height adjustment works well. The only complain is the top eyebrow. It does not tilt down totally. The wings are fixed. So carrying the camera with matte box is a bit awkward.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fine design and construction I have had several matte boxes before, most lately from Cavision in Canada and this is the best I've owned. Machining is very high quality and the design is great. Filter holders are metal, the swing away is slop-free. Everything I've bought of Tilta is high quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great build quality, and the right size. If you're looking for a good matte box do yourself a favor and don't buy a $ knock off of a bigger matte box, I did that years ago and never used it because it was a piece of junk. This matte box is ruggedly built, it's not a knock off, it's a well designed matte box with minimal features that work perfectly, and are suitable for most camera operators. I like to run a small rig, I'm not looking for a behemoth matte box to make my camera look bigger, I just needed something functional, that is well built and can be used day in and day out. This checks off all the boxes. The size is perfect for using lenses with 100mm or less front diameter. Which are all the lenses I own. The included elastic nun's knickers in addition to the different clamp on adapter sizes is great. Everything that should be metal is metal, it's lightweight, sturdy and overall everything most operators need. Something to keep in mind is that it comes with a top flag, and there is no way to attach side flags or a bottom flag, I rarely use flags, so for me it wasn't an issue, and If I have a job that demands that kind of control it will be in the budget to rent a more feature rich matte box. Also the hood itself is made of plastic that is relatively flimsy, still rugged, just bendy. If you're the kind of operator who likes to grab hold of the matte box while shooting you might consider the carbon fiber version. I'm an owner operator and I need rugged, lightweight, professional equipment that delivers job after job.
