- Great Matte Box Review by Ben
- This is a surprisingly good and versatile matte box. Matte Boxes always seem a bit overpriced to me, considering they are just molded plastic. But there are a few great features on this one that make it worth the price. The first is that it is extremely light weight, which makes it easy to work with when shooting handheld. The second is the built-in sleeve that keeps light from reflecting off a filter back into the lens. It's tightened with a drawstring, which I find to be pretty easy to use. Finally, one thumb screw is all it takes to adjust the vertical position and swing away the matte box for lens changes. Downsides: The construction seems kind of cheap (again, considering the price), but is not flimsy. The filter holders are no removable like they are on more expensive matte boxes, so you have to insert the bare filter directly into the filter holder, rather than placing it in a tray which then goes into the holder. Not a huge deal, but the filter holders are a VERY tight fit (good for security; not so good for quick filter changes). The rotation filter holder is very tight and difficult to rotate as well. Maybe this will change with use. (Posted on 3/5/14)
