The SHAPE Matte Box Swing Away is a silicone matte box mounted on a CNC aluminum main frame with an outer diameter of up to 124 mm. It provides a wide field of view for a variety of wide-angle lenses.
Two 4×5.6 filter trays (one rotary) with easy access handles that allow one-handed filter changes. 4×4 filters can also be installed in the trays. The frame includes two stops at the bottom of the filter trays section to prevent the filters from falling through. The removable swing-away module makes lens changes a snap. A spring pin helps to lock the mechanism closed without manually setting the pin. 2 magnets hold it in place when closed.
Removable height adjustable rod block with one tightening knob allows micro-adjustment of height, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of lenses. The rod block can be re-installed directly on the main frame for a straight configuration. The complete kit allows three different configurations, (swing-away, straight and clip-on).
Removable light carbon fiber french flag can be attached to the top to prevent flares. A series of adapter rings are included in the kit:
|Clamp-on adapter ring:
|Threaded aluminum adapter rings:
