Given the nature of rolling shutter, I don't think that it's responsible for what I have been trying to describe since the precipitating elements were not present but thank you for the thought and time you have invested in trying to answer my question.

On another note, I have not yet purchased a matte box but am seriously considering the Cavision and will probably make that purchase in the next few days.

Thanks again.

Good Luck, any more questions just let me know. J

It was suggested that I try lowering the "detail" setting. Since this might indeed be the problem I will give it a try.

Ron,

If you haven't checked out the Redrock Micro mattebox, you should. It's in your price range and many that have it think the bang for the buck is the best out there for matteboxes.

The ARRI setup is very nice but the rig you were talking about with follow focus (as I am sure you know) is in the $3500 USD range.

Hi:
Thank you for the suggestion but I had already decided against the RedRock MicroMatte primarily due to the weight factor (>2lbs). In addition, I agree that the Arri is an expensive piece of equipment whose cost/function ratio I could not personally justify and as a result I have purchased the Cavision Matte Box, Flags, etc. It is less than half the weight of the RedRock and performs the same function as the Arri but perhaps without it's panache. For the time being, I will forgo a Follow Focus but should I decide in favor of one in the future I will consider the Zacuto.
