I don't typically use a dvx100 but have used both cavision and chrosziel's matteboxes on my XL1 which has the same size threading on the lens (72mm).

I would say the primary difference in my eyes is sturdiness. The chrosziel mattebox just felt sturdier when I was using it. The are other things to consider as well. IF you're going to be putting the mattebox over the anamorphic adapter then you need ot consider how wide the original ring is, I believe that the Chrosziel takes 110 (or even 130) with out an adapter ring where as the Cavision only takes 82 (or at least mine did). The other thing to consider is the size of the filters. I believe the cavision only has 4x4 and they don't hold the 4mm (thick) that well, the Chrosziel will hold on to the 4mm thick filters fine and has switchable (at least some do) filter trays so you could go 4x5.65 or 5x5. Which may not be a big deal to you. If you're just getting into this whole business the cavision will definitely adaquately suit your needs but if you have multiple camera's or plan on doing this for a while with many different camera's i would consider ponying up the extra cash for the chrosziel.
