The Chrosziel Matte Box 456-20 Kit for Sony F3 Camera & Zeiss Compact Prime Lenses is designed to work with both, Sony prime lens set as well as Zeiss compact prime lenses. The Matte Box adds a professional look to the camera. You can also add filters for color correction and special effects. This Kit contains 456-20 Academy Matte Box with two rotating filter stages and 5 x 5/4 x 5.65 combo filter trays. This Matte Box can accommodate any lens up to 5.12" (130mm) in front barrel diameter and up to a 0.47" (12mm) wide lens in 1.38" (35mm) format.
The Matte Box comes with a 401-415HD heavy duty support base with 0.59" (15mm) diameter, 19.68" (500mm) long rods that help mount external recording devices on the rear of the camera. It also assists you to mount battery plates such as the Chrosziel 401-BP15 when adding IDX or Anton Bauer battery mounts to power the camera. These long rods also allow you to add a 3034 shoulder pad and 403-20 handlebars for "run and gun" use. Chrosziel offers a number of lens supports, too.
The Kit is sold with a 411-68 flexi ring made of rubber that conforms to lens from 3.74" (95mm) to 4.92" (125mm) barrel diameter. You can add a 401-503 swing away bracket to this Matte Box for quick and easy lens accessibility. The top flag prevents stray light from hitting the camera lens and optional side wings can be added to avoid stray light and lens flares from the sides.
