Matte box or Sunshade?

I'm looking at either getting a matte box or a sunshade but having a little trouble deciding which one to go with. It's going to be a Chrosziel 450 or 440. But other than the 450 being able to support 4x5.65 filters, is there anything else different between them?
For the cost factor, I think I'd like to go with a 440. And being that I have a set of Zacuto rods, am I just able to get the rod holder for the 440 without the whole support system?

Chrozial 450

Hi :)

there is also the SD 455R1 with only ONE 4x4 filter holder.

But I have the 450 with rods and follow focus and it's just so perfect equipment that I recommend to get always the best from them.

BTW its Chrosziel not Chrozial :)

It is a small company near Munich and I picked up my stuff directly from them.
So I am pretty sure that you can get all parts separate. Just ask ...

Hope this helps ...
