This is new. I'm selling because I can't easily adapt it to my 16mm camera, rods and follow focus with the very short prime lenses I have.

This is Chinese made, almost a copy of the Redrock MIcro matte box. It has a swing away arm to fit lightweight 15mm rods (60mm centres). It's quite well made, actually quite amazing for the money. I checked everything, added a lttle teflon lube here and there. The only thing that's not great about this MB is that the filter trays are plastic, so you need more care if using glass filters.

This mattebox with the light weight rod system. If your rods are at the standard height then they will stop before the filter stages and your small adjustments to the box position are done with the side rods. The box height can adjust up or down about 10mm.

Kit contains.

- Two independently rotating filter stages (360deg). The stages are aluminum. The 4x5.65" trays are plastic, They each have an aluminum insert so you can use 4x4 filters. Each stage has two thumb screws to lock tray position and rotation. I tried out some 4.2mm thick Tiffen glass and they work ok. Clearances are ok for the glass. I think the manufacturer will end up making metal trays.

- ABS plastic sunshade. Front dimensions are 250x160mm. Has an inset matt at the front. Using different mattes would be viable, but they aren't being made yet.

- Mounts on the sunshade for top, side and bottom flags are aluminum. The attachment to the sunshade is robust (unlike some of the expensive German MBs). Thumb screws are steel with aluminum heads. Aluminum top flag, adjustible side curtains.

- Plastic donut holder with inner diameter 139mm. Rubber (dense foam like neoprene) donuts with inner diameter 100, 75, 64, 49mm.

- Swing away arm and mechanism all aluminum. Plastic heads on the thumbscrews for the arm clamps.

Will ship in the original packaging.

If you are in Auckland you are wellcome to have a look.
