The ARRI MB-20 System I Compact 3-Stage Mattebox - 5.65 x 5.65, 19mm Studio is a versatile, modular mattebox designed primarily for the high definition video market, but can easily be used with 16mm or 35mm format film cameras. Interchangeable modules allow for either rod mounted swing-away operation or for clamping directly onto the lens.

The heart of the mattebox is the Basic Module, which can be fitted with the removable Sunshade and Top, Bottom, and Side Flags. Interchangeable Hard Mattes can be snapped into the front of the sun shade.

The back of the Basic Module accepts a 2- or 3-Filter Stage, with each being individually rotatable.

The right-hand edge of the Basic Module mates with one of 2 support systems:

The Clamp-on Adapter

In this mode the mattebox clamps directly to the front of the lens. The Clamp-on Adapter natively fits lenses with a front diameter of 130mm. A range of Adapter Rings (sold separately) reduce the basic 130mm diameter to as little as 80mm, accomodating a wide variety of lenses.

The Swing Away Module

The Swing Away Module offers all the features of a production mattebox, where the mattebox is mounted on support rods and the entire front section swings forward to facilitate lens changes. The Swing Away Module is fitted with the Console for Lightweight Support, which mounts directly on 15mm Lightweight Support Rods. With this kit, an adapter for 19mm studio support rods is also included.

In Swing Away mode, the rear of the filter stage is fitted with the Back 138mm Bellows Adapter. This accepts a selection of 138mm and 4.5” Filter Rings, which enable the addition of a round, rotatable filter. The filter rings combine with Connection or Adapter Rings to work with lenses of different front diameters.

NOTE: Filter, Connection, and/or Adapter Rings sold separately, unless otherwise noted. 

Features

  • Designed for film and digital cameras
  • Works with wide angle HD zooms
  • Modular construction allows all mounting options
  • Offers up to three independently rotating filter stages
  • Accommodates a wide range of filter sizes
  • All filters can be individually rotated and locked off
  • Can be equipped with top, bottom, side flags and masks
  • Provides an upgrade path as wider HD lenses come to market
  • Locking swing-away lens access

IMPORTANT NOTE: The distinctions between MB-20 System I (included) and System II (sold separately) are as follows:

  • System I has a removable sun shade
  • System I has unique mounting points for top and side flags
  • System II has a cage around the outside of the sun shade for extra rigidity
  • System II has different mounting points for top and side flags

NOTE: System I can be converted to System II by swapping the front shade module.
