Matte box for XL2

I have an XL@ with a 16x manual servo lens. I've been trying to find a matte box that would best suit the camera. Does anyone know what type of matte box I should be looking at?

I've been using the Chrosziel 4x4 mattebox with rails and follow-focus. I can't imagine life without it! http://www.16x9inc.com/cgibin/eDatCa...C-CANON-XLH1MB

The Caivision is nice too.

No. I use the Cavision Matte Box with the Canon XL2 with a Manual 16x lens and ocassionally the 3x lens. It works fine with both. I keep it on the camera a lot, and I have it setup with pistol grips for hand held shooting at the moments notice.


It doesn't do too well with the wide angle adapter from century optics, but thats a limitation of the adapter and is not a problem unless you use that one adapter.
