  • SMB-1 2-Filter Stage, with (2) Filter Frames (K2.0001465)

The ARRI SMB-1 Basic Set - 19mm Studio supports filter sizes up to 6.6" x 6.6", and is designed for use with larger wide-angle prime lenses and zooms. The SMB-1 benefits from stackable filter stages, allowing quick reconfiguration. This mattebox includes a 4:3 ratio (spherical) sunshade, and a 2:1 ratio (anamorphic) sunshade is available (sold separately). Back plate is compatible with R1 Filter Rings (sold separately).

NOTE: The SMB-1 covers the full ALEXA sensor area and allows the Master Prime 12mm to be used with a 2-filter stage, and both the Ultra Prime 10mm and 9.5-18mm Ultra Wide Zoom (UWZ) with a 1-filter stage. 


  • 19mm Studio support arm
  • Stackable filter stages
  • Anamorphic conversion set available (not included)
  • Ready for ALEXA and 12mm Master Prime
  • Ready for ALEXA and Angenieux Optimo 24-290mm

Stackable Filter Stages

Filter stages can be stacked together as single or dual filter stage modules. Filters are fully rotatable, the 2-filter stage accepts one geared filter frame, and all filter stages are fitted with independent "tray catchers.”

Sunshade & Mattes

The standard 4:3 ratio sunshade covers the full ALEXA sensor and permits repositioning in post. SMB-1 sunshades are easily removable by means of captive screws. Matte sets are available for both anamorphic and spherical shooting.

Anamorphic Conversion Set

The mattebox can be optimized for anamorphic filming by means of a unique 2:1 ratio sunshade, side flags and matte set (sold separately).

Advanced Flag Adjusters

Top, bottom and side flags (not included) allow precise positioning thanks to advanced adjusters, and the top flag has folding side flaps to reduce overall width if required.

Top Accessory Mount

An accessory mount (sold separately) can be fitted directly onto the matte box body, offering surfaces for French flag arms and incorporating a 3/8-16" sliding mount that is ideal for ultrasonic sensors such as the ARRI UDM-1.

Triple Filter Frame

Used in combination with either the SMB-1 or SMB-2, the triple filter frame (sold separately) stacks two or three glass filters together in a single filter frame that occupies two regular matte box slots and prevents unwanted reflections between filter surfaces.

Filter Stage Adapter

This step-down adapter (not included) permits SMB-2 filter stages to be mounted to the SMB-1 matte box, without affecting wide-angle coverage.
