Absolutely loving this mini matte box. Smallrig makes great gear for intermediate level video products and this is another awesome piece of kit! Works great with my Sony A7C, perfect for filming on a sunny day and also most importantly, IT LOOKS SO COOL! 10/10!
Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Well built and light weight.
It's a clever economical take on the style matte box that clamps to a 95mm outer ring. This one has interior there that match the adapter size to allow for existing lens filters. The downside is that you can't just use one large one for all lens sizes... So it's a wash. The filter tray doesn't seem like it will hold up over time, but this item has been made to be lightweight, not durable and versatile.
Made with just the right materials for strength and light weight. Able to mount threaded circular filters along with 4x5.65. Only suggestion would be the 4x5.65 should be a drop-in instead of side-mounted, but that would probably trade-off weight.
I have standardized using the Manfrotto Xume Magnetic filter system for all my filters and lens caps. Since the filter base can be screwed onto the matte box, it provides a few millimeters clearance for my fingers to pull off any filters easily. Love it and I was worried the filter threads may have been too recessed! Not an issue! Overall, this is great for functionality for shoots when you want to control overhead lights/lighting to minimize flaring, but as others have stated, it makes you look more professional and boy does it look good! Definitely 5 stars!
This is a great addition. The matte is small perfect for run and gun who shoots handheld and tripods. The other 99 small rig matte looks bulky.
I bought this for it's size, weight, price, and hoped the functionality would be as good as I imagined, and it is. The only way to improve it would be to add side flags and adjustable top flag... Which they have just done with the Pro version - I can't wait for that to arrive.
It is easy to use and allows to screw the circular filters with ease.
I like how this matte box delivers the quality coverage of more expensive models with far less weight & cost. An excellent value.
