Elegantly designed for today's high definition cameras, the new Chrosziel Modular Mattebox is made especially to work with the new 5.650x5.650 filter size. Plus, the 5.650x5.650 HD Mattebox changes effortlessly from a full-blown swing-away mattebox to a convenient clamp-on system.
The basic unit features a 16:9/4:3 wide angle housing for compatibility with wide lenses without vignetting. Compatible with prime lenses as wide as 10mm (35mm Academy) when used with two filterstages and 12mm (35mm Academy) when used with three filterstages.
At the heart of the system is a series of interchangeable filterstages for enhanced filtering flexibility. Filterstages are easily exchanged with the use of a quick-lock mechanism. The basic Mattebox comes with two independently rotating filterstages with one 5.65x5.65, 4x5.65 vertical combination filter holder and one 5x5, 4x5.65 horizontal, 4x5.65 vertical combination filter holder. It delivers complete with a quick-lock device for the easy addition of another filterstage when more filtration is required.
The unit comes complete with a filterstage for two independently rotating 5.65x5.65 filters, making it large enough for ultra-wide lenses (up to 10mm in 35mm Academy when used with 5.65x5.65 filters), yet compact enough for handheld work. Operators have a maximum option of three independently rotating filterholders (limited to 12mm wide).
The smart-design provides ample room for the easy manipulation of filters—such as vertical grads—to any desired position. This allows the mattebox to accommodate numerous filter sizes, including 5.65x5.65, 5x5, or 4x5.65 filters, mounted vertically or horizontally.
Manipulation of Light
The standard articulating French Flag protects against flair and loss of contrast. The French Flag can be teamed with optional side wings for precise manipulation of light.
Chrosziel's elegant "out-and-away" swing-away capability makes faster lens changes possible. This is an invaluable feature on shoots requiring multiple lens changes.
The modular mattebox was designed for use in both handheld work or in full-production applications. The unit comes with a lightweight support bracket for use with 15mm rods.
The modular mattebox is designed to integrate onto 15mm or 19mm bridgeplate rods with the use of Chrosziel's bridgeplate adapters.
Switching to a clamp-on system is quick and easy, thanks to the Chrosziel modification kit. The bracket dismounts simply for replacement with a 130mm clamp adapter. The clamp adapter's ingenious design offers an elegant "out-and-away" swing-away capability.
