Matte Box for SDX-900

I have just purchased a Panasonic SDX-900 and am looking for a Matte Box. The only ones I have worked with are the Arri LMB-5 and a few different versions of the Chrosziel. Can anyone tell me about Cavision or Tiffen matte boxes? I came across them on the web, but am unable to get my hands on a demo in Miami, FL. Any thoughts on the best price/quality/features would be welcome.

Do a search on matte boxes, or cavision. Several have written plenty on the sunject and i think i researched about everyone on the market. I did buy Cavision 4x4 bellows. DV.Com is down right now but i posted a fairly complex bit of research there. I thoughjt I had posted it here , but i can'tr find it.

In reference to Bryan's post above, he has written a lot about Cavision here. Using the forum's Search tool, type in "cavision" in the subject search box and "beasleigh" in the name box (choose match partial name). Select "search entire posts" and it should bring up a couple of pages of his Cavision posts. Of course, other members may have some input for you as well; and we were considering a dedicated SDX900 forum if you think you might be interested in that...
