This complete set allows you to shield off disturbing sunlight when filming, and to optimally reduce the light incident by using neutral-density filters. On the Matte Box Director II one cannot only freely adjust the degree of screening, but also rotate the filter slots by 360° - for flexibility in work. In addition, the set comes with three different neutral-density filters with factors ND 2, ND 4 and ND 8, keeping you well equipped for any light conditions. This set is supplemented by the walimex pro grey graduated filter, which allows you to darken just a part of the area.
walimex pro Matte Box Director II
With the Matte Box by walimex pro you can shield your camera from sunlight during shootings, and therefore prevent lens reflections (lens flares). This ensures professional film results. The degree of shielding can be freely selected, by adjusting the three movable barn doors individually. That way it is also possible to use them in combination with wide angle lenses.
A swing-away mechanism allows quick lens changes. For this, you can simply fold the front part of the matte box to the side.
Two filter trays with removable filter holders allow the use of 4x4 or 4x5.6 filters. Both filter trays are rotatable by 360 degrees. The filter holders can be locked into position. Additionally you receive two filter frames with inner dimensions of 9.6x9.6cm.
The lens hood is compatible with all DSLR rigs with 15mm rods at a distance of 6cm. It is mounted on the rods of the rig and locked into place. In order to adjust the Matte Box optimally to the used camera and lens, it can be adjusted in height.
walimex pro neutral-density filter ND 8, ND 4, ND 2
The neutral-density filter ND 8 from walimex with a value of 0.9 reduces the light incidence by 87% or 3 apertures. With this neutral-density filter you can film with open aperture even in bright sunlight or daylight. This is why it is preferably used if a blurring background is to be achieved despite bright sunlight. With its size of 4 x 4 it fits many Matte boxes, e.g. also for the walimex pro Director I. The filter is in this case simply pushed into the filter slot of the Matte box. The neutral-density filter ND 2 from walimex with a value of 0.3 reduces the light incidence by 50% or 1 aperture. The neutral-density filter ND 4 from walimex with a value of 0.6 reduces the light incidence by 75% or 2 apertures.
walimex pro graduated filter
The walimex pro graduated filter for videography redices the light incidence when filming, so that you can film with open aperture even in bright sunlight, e.g. to achieve background sharpness. Since the graduated filters are transparent towards the edge and the darkening effect only occurs over part of the area, the filter is the ideal solution for darkening a too bright sky and for optimal adjustment of excessive brightness contrasts within an image. With its size of 4 x 4 it fits many Matte boxes, e.g. also for the walimex pro Director I. The filter is in this case simply pushed into the filter slot of the Matte box.
