The LMB 4×5 Matte Box 15mm LWS Pro Set from ARRI includes a wide range of lightweight LMB 4×5 matte box components. This most complete of several sets offered by ARRI includes a 15mm lightweight rod support, stationary 2-filter and single-filter stages, one single-filter rotating stage, and five 4 x 5.65″ / 4 x 4″ combo filter trays. The LMB 4×5 may be top or bottom-mounted using the 15mm LWS console; for clip-on use, a lens clamp adapter must be ordered separately. This configuration of the modular LMB 4×5 matte box also includes a flexible, universal adapter donut that fits a wide variety of lenses from 62-143mm in diameter.
Flare-blocking aids include one top/bottom flag, two side flags, a set of flag holders, and sets of both spherical and anamorphic–formatted mattes. For those up close-and-personal shots, the LMB 4×5 sunshade includes captive screws for easy removal and attachment to its frame. Extended flare protection on the carbon fiber flags includes slide-out wings; the large flag may be positioned at the top or bottom of the matte box depending on your shot.
A combo swing-away/tilt arm module enables easier lens changes by providing access to the lens port without having to slide the matte box off its supporting rods. The tilt function supports filters at a 10° angle, eliminating or reducing unwanted reflections such as car headlights, etc. Use the LMB accessory adapter to attach a 3/8″-16-mountable item such as a focus rangefinder to the LMB 4×5 matte box.
