Thanks, that makes it clearer - it's w/o follow focus. Quite costly, methinks...

It's totally OK Steven...

But I think the price for matteboxes are just insane; 3 000 bucks for a shade, two rods and a gear? Must be the "movie business exponent" on this gear as for everything else you'll need. Does anyone tried the Vocas matteboxes? I think it's same as Century.

and.. do I need followfocus, everything is in focus anyway with 20x stock lens ;-)

No doubt low volume is a major factor.

Best,

Yes it may be so...

But have anyone tried Cavision or Vocas or something else. Not that I'm against Chrosziel, but I would like to compare when I'm doing this kind of a huge investment...

yes, I have the 4x4 bellows mattebox for my DVX100A and it's great. Cavision doesn't have anything made specifically for the XLH1 yet but I believe they are planning on it.

Maybe I should rename this thread to include follow focus...
What about this one... from my buddy Karl Horn at CineTech.
Yeah it's on an XL2 here but obviously it fits an XL H1 as well.

Carl's matte box and follow focus work very nicely on the H1. I actually shot this image for Carl's new web site.

Nice but it doesn't seem any cheaper than the Chrosziel at the end of the day.
