Chrosziel 450W-20 Super Wide MatteBox Kit for Sony PMW-EX3 Camcorders -
The Chrosziel 450W-20 Super Wide MatteBox Kit is designed for Sony PMW-EX3 Camcorders. The Chrosziel 450W-20 Super Wide Matte Box consists of a 450W-20 matte box, a French flag, 2 independently rotating filter stages, two 4 x 4/4 x 5.65 combination filter holders, a center bracket which attaches to 15mm lightweight support rods (not included), a 130mm rear plate and clamp adaptor.
The 450W-20 matte box offers a wide angle (16:9 /4:3) housing for a lens as wide as 16mm (35mm Academy) and eliminates the effects of vignetting. Equipped with a filter stage for 2 independently rotating 4 x 5.65/4 x 4 filter holders, the matte box provides sufficient space for adjusting the position of filters. Provided with a French flag, the 450W-20 Super Wide Matte Box controls the angle of light and eliminates lens glare and flare and it can be coupled with optional side wings for accurate light adjustment.
For a secure mounting, the 450W-20 Super Wide Matte Box includes a bracket and a 130mm clamp adaptor for use with the optional 15mm lightweight support rods. Optional side wings attached to the matte box using a pivot mechanism help shield the lens from excess light. An optional swing-away bracket, attached to the back of the matte box housing, allows for quick and efficient lens changes. The matte box is ideal to be used with handheld cameras and full-production studio cameras. The Chrosziel 450-11 Top French Flag for MB-450 Matte Box mounts to the top of the matte box or sunshade and allows for more light control around the lens of the camera. This particular model is made for the 4x4" matte box/sunshade.
The 4x4" filter holder is an alternative to the 3x4" filter holders that work with sunshades and matte boxes. It fits in the 4x4" slot and offers more space for adjustment. This adjustment works well for polarizer's and gradient filter types. This filter holder can be utilized for an extra accessory for fast drop-in capabilities or replacement of a damaged unit. The 4x5.65" filter holder is an alternative to the 4x5" filter holders that work with sunshades and matte boxes. It fits in the 4x5" slot and offers more vertical space for adjustment. This adjustment works well for polarizer's and gradient filter types. This filter holder can be utilized for an extra accessory for fast drop-in capabilities or replacement of a damaged unit.
The Chrosziel AC-411-67 is a 130:110mm step-down ring that fits into the 130mm clamp adapter on the MB-485 Academy Matte Box. The ring creates a 110mm thread for the wide choice of light prevention rings, including those used with complete range of prosumer camcorders. The Chrosziel C-410-46 Insert Ring is a 110mm to 100mm insert ring. When the outside diameter of a professional camera lens is 100mm, the user needs an insert ring to adapt the Chrosziel 4 x 4" 110mm matte box's opening. The ring rests inside the matte box and quickly flips to accommodate the smaller lens.
The Chrosziel 401-422 Lightweight Support System enables Sony PMW-EX3 camcorders to be outfitted with accessories such as MatteBoxes, follow focus and flags. Combining a 401-400 baseplate with two adjustable 15mm rods and a camera-specific top plate, this rod support system takes the weight of the MatteBox off the lens and offers a platform for accessories such as a DV Studio Rig/Follow Focus system. Also optimized for use with Chrosziel's 4 x 5" and 5 x 5" MatteBoxes, the system allows vertical and horizontal adjustments along industry-standard 15mm support rods.
