This B&H Kit includes the Tilta 6 x 6" Carbon Fiber Matte Box from ikan and one Tiffen 0.6 ND filter. This kit provides you with a carbon fiber matte box with a rich feature set and a neutral density filter for exposure control. The matte box mounts onto either 15 or 19mm support rods by an interchangeable rod mount. Both the 15 and 19mm rod mounts are included, and you switch between the rod supports using the included hex key. Another feature of this matte box is the swing away design that moves the matte box out of the way during lens changes, without having to remove the matte box from the support rods. The lightweight carbon fiber construction keeps the weight down, while still being strong enough to support a top flag (eyebrow) and side flags for lens flare control. The matte box also comes with 80, 90, 114, and 134mm lens adapters to prevent light leak from behind the lens.

The included 0.6 ND filter provides an even reduction of light by two stops. This means that if you were shooting at an f5.6 without a filter; with the included ND filter, you would set your aperture to f2.8 to maintain the same exposure. A wider aperture setting results in less depth of field, which helps you achieve a more cinematic look. The filter can also be used during very bright days to bring down your exposure without adjusting your shutter speed or closing your aperture down so far that it degrades the image. The filter is designed with the ND material sandwiched between two layers of glass. This provides excellent consistency and unlike filters that mix the filter effect in the glass itself, you can have this filter polished to remove light scratches without affecting the density of the filter. This can save you the cost of replacing the filter.
