Alvise,
Why won't the Redrock mattebox work with the EX-1?

I hope I'm wrong. I'm just speculating based on the fact RR mattebox appears, on pictures, bulkier (swing away function /Red compatibility).
then, say, a Chrosziel

I got this at http://www.cinetactics.com

You can get just a matte box < get the HD version for 16x9 > and it comes with a flag or add a large flag if you want. The box can use 4x4 filters but there is no way to rotate filters < unless you remove flag and rotate the whole box >
This low cost solution folds up flat and is simple to pack in a small camera bag.

Just got my EX1 and the Chrosziel made for the Z1 fits fine (can park the LCD). There is no problem inserting filter trays from the bottom -- been doing that for some time. Agree that it would be better without that mic in that position, but that's how it is!

So is the problem that the mic interferes?
Can you lose the mic or is it built in?

No, that mic is built in. Not interfere so much as just in the way. However with the Z1/FX there is the same problem and I don't find bottom access to the filter trays to be troublesome. Of course you must have the rails right back.

Cavision also has single filters as well as a nicely priced kit of 5.

Use 4x5,65 filters

Is better when used 4x5,56 and put at 45 because when not, is the wideangle "effect" limited
