Chrosziel 450-R2 MatteBox Kit for Sony PMW-EX3 Cameras -
The Chrosziel 450-R2 MatteBox Kit is a perfect choice for setting up a compact rig with the Sony PMW-EX3. It fits onto 15mm rods. Filters get inserted into it from above and can then be rotated sideways according to the rotating mechanism that is used. The R20 comes ready with included Chrosziel (410-04) 4x4" and 4x5.65" multi-format filter holders and (402-12) 4x4" for the rear stage, including a French flag and front mask.
This kit has the 450-R2 MatteBox with Carbon-Design, which is lightweight and robust and comes with a double filter-stage, a 16:9 aspect ratio mask (mask insert that fits into the MatteBox and shields from stray light, etc.), a (450-11) French flag and a pivot mechanism set for the use of side wings (side wings not included). It also has two rotatable filter holders 4x4" (402-12) and multi-format 4x4"/4x5.65" (410-04), a bracket for 15mm rods, a cover end plate with thread 110mm (401-63), lightweight support for Sony (for tripod plate) and an insert ring (410-39) 110:85mm.
The Chrosziel C-401-422 Lightweight Support System is designed specifically to accommodate Chrosziel's MatteBox when using the Sony PMW-EX3 camcorder. To add the support, simply install the center bracket to the MatteBox, install the lightweight support base to the camera and insert the industry standard 15mm rods directly between the center bracket and the lightweight support base.
