Hey Bas, two things:

1) I had a really hard time finding that "Choose your camera" pull down. You might want to place that in a better spot!

2) No prices! Can you give a ballpark price?

Thanks

Bas,

The trouble I had was when I choose the USA there's only one vendor and their website isn't very good either about pricing.

I'd love to order your product, but boy I'm having a hard time figuring out how to do it.

We have two agents in the states;
Century Precision Optics (http://www.centuryoptics.com/)
and Prosource (http://www.prosourcebmi.com/).

I think the best thing to do, is to call them about pricing.

Best regards,

Does anyone know where I can get side flags for the Century optics matte box? I saw a picture of them once.

What about this setup?

Which, upon review of this thread, is what Carlos suggested back on the first page.

This one seems to be inexpensive enough, if it works.

I was on a project in which we used one of the cavision matteboxes... actually, it was a short I did in college, and our department (which typically focused on ENG style work) didn't have any matteboxes... I was pushing for a Chroziel setup, but the prof was cheap, and wanted the lowest cost solution he could find...

Anyways, all that to say that I was not pleased with the overall quality of the cavision mattebox. It just didn't seem very well built, and I remember spending a lot of time double checking that all the screws were tight, that the filters were going to stay in, etc. Of course I feel it pertinent to mention that, being the cheap prof he was, we didn't have a rail system and of course it was used on an XL1s, not an FX/Z1

Petroff makes a matte box system for the new Sony Camera. Their one stage system also rotates. A lot of the one stage systems do not. The one stage list around $707 and the two stage $1013. That includes a top flag, filter holders and adapter ring.

The Formatt brand can be loaded from the bottom so the mic does not get in the way.

Petroff has a matte box for view at the following location http://www.petroff.ws/Sony_XDR-FX1.jpg
This matte box is designed for this camera and is very user friendly.
