Matte box for Z1 - which one?

Hi, I'm looking at getting a matte box for my Z1 and was wondering if anyone could suggest a particular model/brand that works well with it.

Also from the websites that I've looked at the cameras seem to have a 35mm adaptor attached to the lens, is this necessary and what does it do to the image?

Thanks

David,

Sorry that i hadn't replied earlier.

THere are many threads on this subject such as

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...ight=Matte+box

If you plug in an advanced search using Matte Box and Z1 you will find at least 5 more.

I am using the "indian Knock off Matte box" which works fine, but is not as classy or anywhere near as well constructed as the Chrosiel, Vocas, or Cavision models - which are all better, but much more expensive. YOu get what you pay for here.
