Bright Tangerine Strummer DNA Kit 2 Mattebox
Introducing Strummer, a revolutionary matte box. Designed for high-end studio productions, the Strummer is the professional’s choice. The swing-away feature allows for fast and easy lens changes so you have more time to focus on what’s important. The quick release filter stages can be added or removed in seconds so you won’t have to wait around or carry a spare matte box. Add as many stages as you need, or remove them to improve exceptional depth of field. Filter stages rotate through 360 degrees so you can set your ND grads in the right position, or adjust your polarizer to the perfect angle.
Strummer DNA Kit 2: 4"x5.65" 3-Stage Matte Box: Inc, 15mm LWS Arm
The best of both worlds, Strummer is a 5.65 matte box which expands into a full scall 6" studio matte box, while retaining its compact form. With interchangable backs, revolutionary filter trays adjustable flags, and a wide field of view, you'll want to keep your matte box, even if you change your camera.
Faster lens changes
Frictionless ball bearings allow the Strummer to swing away in an effortless motion to make lens changes quick and simple, giving you more time to focus on what's important.
Click Cassette Technology.
Wouldn't it be crazy if you had to buy a completely different filter stage, replacing half your matte box, just to use an extra filter? We thought so. Simply click stages together to engage them. Press the button to release them. Change from 2 to 3 stage, or even 6, in a couple of seconds.
360° Revolutionary filter stages.
As well as being removable, the stages rotate through 360 degrees. And of course, you can rotate a round filter in our donuts.
Self servicing. It just got easy.
Normal filter stages get clogged up. Thanks to our Click Cassette Technology, trapped debris, and lubrication are now a thing of the past. Servicing only takes a few minutes. With the click of a button and the swipe of a brus - you're done.
Interchangeable backplates. One matte box. Two sizes.
You can't get around the fact that some lenses need 6" filters, but with Strummer that doesn't mean you need an extra matte box. The 6" bacplate is designed to work with lenses as large as an Optimo 24-290mm.
Adjustable lightweight flags. Superior light control.
Our matte boxes aren't just filter holders. Protecting your lens from stray light improves contrast and resolution. The carbon fibre blades are fixed to light alloy axles that stay with the flag. Remove the flag, remove the weight.
Wider Field of View.
Cover lenses as wide as a 14mm Cooke S4, and still use 3 filter stages. Use RED Pro Zooms at 5K. Vignettes are the thing of the past.
