Chris,

If you are happy with a rubber hood then fine, the big advantage for me with the Genus wideangle mattebox is that I can stack 2 filters and not get any cutoff even with my 17-40 lens whilst still being able to prevent flare effectively using the flag. Also when I'm packing on average 6 to 7 lenses per shoot one mattebox is far more convenient than lots of rubber hoods with filters to screw on and off.

Dan:

If I was a regular shooting pro, I would be doing the same thing, and you are the man when it comes to shooting this rig as a pro. I didn't mean anything demeaning about my comment. Its just a lot $'s for budget shooters that might better go to a decent tripod, another lens or a good sound set up...

Just to be clear.....I'm lucky and that I have a decent size budget to buy this stuff. If I was doing this as a hobby, I'd be doing exactly what Chris is doing.

I tried to steer this thread by putting the words "high-quality" in the thread title. But I should have probably said "high-end" instead. My bad. :)

Naw, Mitch... I think it was I that went OT. I just thought it was interesting about imbalance Dan was showing on his rig, and I really posted the film to show that I had similar issue with mine and to talk about adding weight behind shoulder brace kind of balooned from there.
