    Default Official Mattebox Sale Thread

    It is my great pleasure to announce you that we will be selling a Mattebox directly from this sub-forum to our fellow forumers!
    We don't have much details to share yet, we're still working on it. But what I can tell you, is that it will be even more affordable than what you can find at the moment.
    We should have the system ready to take orders by July.

    Here's some pictures of the Mattebox:

    The attaches of the french flags. Quite strong and the french flags can be locked tight enough:

    Some shots of the filters tray. On the side, you can lock the filters tray with the little blue knobs:

    The filter trays. One actually bigger than the other: the bigger one is the one that doesn't rotate:

    The raiser:

    Out of the two filters stages, only one can rotate:

    I have this mattebox. I also have a 4x4 ClearWhite white balance filter and this fits exactly in the filter tray. It allows you to set the WB by measuring incident light without disconnecting the camera from the mattebox.

    You could also take out the filter tray and replace it with the Expoimaging Video Format Filter. The filter frame measures 4.25" x 6.25" from the very edges of the frame (excluding the top handle) and is 1/4 inch thick, so it should fit within the filter tray slot (according to my measurements; I didn't try it on!). However, this filter has a different price tag to it.

    For some reason I can't get the details on the mattebox as the item seems to be missing from the shop. Am I missing something here or is the offer canceled?

    If you're looking for details, I suppose it is this mattebox (the price quoted there is the regular price).

    Lou

    P.S.
    I just saw this is my 499th post. I wonder what happens when I reach 500. Would people start cheering?

    So this mattebox would attach to the raynox wide angle but not the lens xha1 hood that is attached to the raynox?

    I did read that one yes, but in the shop it is listed, gives me an error. But to me it seemed the others were able to see the item, including price and all.

    We're setting up the shop software still. We had a sample item in there just to test things.....but it was/is a dolly, not a mattebox.

    He's confusing me now...

    There was never a mattebox in the store. There was never a price announced.

    There's one now. Not much details, but the item is there.
    As for price, we're still working on it! We'll announce as soon as possible!

    I've added the Mattebox on the first page in the categories (along with the DSLR acc. and the Lights section) and with the Acc section, there's the Table Dolly and the Follow Focus. No pictures available (except thumbnails) but I'm working on it with Mal.

    If I can get a job I am going to buy the mattebox, and maybe the follow focus. Looks awesome though, guys. Awesome job!
    You'll never know if you don't go. GO!

    It looks more like an e-shop now: http://www.hv20.com/cart.php
    Products are available to view separately. Still working on it though!

    Nice to see this coming along.

    All of the hyperlinks in the "Categories" section jump to the VideoLed photo at the moment though.
