The Chrosziel C-456-20-HPXK2 MatteBox Kit for Panasonic HPX300/370/500 Cameras consists of a 456-20 MatteBox, a French flag, 2 independently rotating filter stages, two 4 x 5.65/5 x 5 combination filter holders, a 130mm rear plate, 2 step-down rings (130:110mm, 110:85mm) and a bracket for 15mm lightweight support rods. The 456-20 MatteBox offers a wide angle (16:9/4:3) housing for lens as wide as 12mm (35mm Academy) and eliminates the effects of vignetting. Equipped with a filter stage for two independently rotating 4 x 5.65/5 x 5 filter holders, the MatteBox provides sufficient space for adjusting the position of the filters.
Provided with a French flag, the MatteBox 456-20 Kit 2 allows you to control the angle of light and eliminates lens glare and flare and it can be coupled with optional side wings for accurate light adjustment. To adapt to different HDSLR lens openings, the kit contains two step-down rings (130:110mm and 110:85mm) and a 130mm rear plate.
To ensure secure mounting, the MatteBox 456-20 Kit 2 includes a center bracket for use with the 15mm lightweight support rods. Using a tightening knob, you can attach the MatteBox system to the 15mm lightweight support. Optional side wings attached to the MatteBox using a pivot mechanism help shield the lens from excess light. An optional swing-away bracket, attached to the back of the MatteBox housing, allows for quick and efficient lens changes.
