Tilta MB-T03 4x4" Carbon Fiber Matte Box
Fiber & Aluminum Construction
Lenses with Up to 100 mm Diameter
Rotating 4 x 4 Filter Stage
& Side Flags
The included removable top and side flags can be precisely set and locked to block stray light from flaring your lens. The included anti-reflection rings protect your image by blocking stray light behind the camera bouncing off of filters in the matte box and flaring your image.
The matte box itself is
made out of carbon fiber with aluminum used for the support structure. This
provides a lightweight yet sturdy unit that is appropriate for shooting
hand-held or with a stabilizer rig, when every ounce counts.
The swing-away design
allows you to quickly move the matte box out of the way to check or change
lenses, without having to remove the matte box from the support rods. This way
you don't have to hand off the matte box to someone else, hold it under an arm
or between your knees, or hang it under the rods while you work, greatly
speeding your workflow and reducing the chance of dropping the matte box or
having a filter tray fall out.
& Side Flags
The removable top and
side flags provide you additional flare control and attach to the matte box
with a lockable hinged assembly. This allows you to precisely set your flags to
match the edge of frame for different lenses and lock them in place so that
they don't move during the shot.
The three included
anti-reflection inserts work with lenses with an outer diameter of 72, 80, and
90 mm. They provide a light-tight seal so that light from behind the camera
cannot leak through where the lens joins the matte box and reflect off filters
to flare your image. When you are using lenses with outer diameters other than
72, 80, and 90 mm or with lenses that have excessive focus travel it is
recommended to use the cloth "nun's knickers" to prevent light leaks.
