I consider this an essential accessory, especially if you use variable ND filters.
I use a variable ND filter when shooting video with my Fuji X-H1 so that I can shoot at a constant aperture and 180 degree shutter. Since the filter rotates, the matte box cannot be screwed into the filter. This rod support allows me to mount the box on rails. I select an adapter ring slightly larger than my filter diameter, slide the box forward and adjust the filter. I then back the box up so that the filter is just inside the matte box.
This would also add stability if you use a larger, heavier lens. I sometimes shoot with my Canon 70-200 f2.8. In the past I've used the SmallRig lens support. Now I can just mount the matte box and support it with this bracket. Since there are cold shoe mounts on the matte box, I'd use this support if I mounted anything on the box.
The quick release makes it fast and easy to attach to the rails. This is another well designed, well made piece of kit from SmallRig!
