About this item

The Flashpoint DV DSLR Matte Box Pro is the best value in a creative videographer's treasury of tools. Adding a simple matte box to your camera lens strengthens the clarity and contrast that lens flare can destroy. The detrimental effects of light entering even the most expensive lenses are reversed. Not just a 'lens hood on steroids', but a rotating 16:9 filter holder and masking system that suits the specifics of your lens and camera combination. The superior material finish of the machined aluminum and the generous thumb screws, tension knobs or locking hubs, make it perfect for field or studio use without special tools. French flags are firmly secured and twin side wing, adjustable flaps that perfect the protective shade of the matte box, feature locking tracks and catch tabs. As filmmaking is often a moving experience, the lens is subjected to various light paths to keep the action framed properly. The matte box customizable components minimize the challenges of a camera in motion facing harsh environmental or studio lighting. The matte box has 360 degree rotating filter stage and filter trays that support both 4 X 4 and 4 X 5.65 filter sizes. While 'you can do it in post' is a familiar expression, endless hours and expense can be saved by getting better final images while recording. Using filters during your shoot will give you great color and style before the footage gets anyplace near editing.
