NOTE: The CINEbox now ships with black ABS filter trays.
The CINEbox is a 'Matte Box' device used in still photography and video. It connects to the end of a lens to block the sun or other light sources in order to prevent glare and lens flare. The CINEbox 4x4" Matte Box features two 360° Rotating Filter Stages, a robust Swing Away Hinge System with adjustable end stops, Vertical Adjustment, Interchangeable Mattes and optional Top & Side Flags.
What is the Swing Away?
The Swing Away is a convenient method of moving the CINEbox out of the way, giving better access to change your lenses. The Swing Away utilises a robust hinge system with adjustable end stops to ensure that the CINEbox remains perpendicular to your lens in the ‘closed’ position.
What are Connection Kits?
To achieve maximum compatibility with the vast choice and types of lenses, we offer different 'Connection Kits' for the CINEbox. These Connection Kits determine how the lens physically attaches to the CINEbox. This CINEbox bundle ships with the Rubber Bellows and is suitable for lenses that have the front barrel move or rotate when racking focus. If your lenses have a fixed front barrel, the
Connection Kit with Interchangeable Donuts can add extra stability.
This product has been designed, machined and assembled in the United Kingdom and is part of the Shoot35 product range.
