Integrated Tilt Module 

The SMB-2 Tilt has an integrated tilt module that counteracts image artefacts linked to filter reflections by allowing the mattebox assembly to be quickly and easily tilted, without any need for additional accessories.

Stackable Filter Stages

Filter stages can be stacked together as single or dual filter stage modules. Filters are fully rotatable.The filter frame located at the rear of the filter group can be geared 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-2 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 (sold separately) allow precise positioning thanks to advanced adjusters. The side flags are adjustable and the top flag has folding side flaps to reduce overall width if required.

138mm Tilting Filter Ring

A special rubber filter ring has been designed to accompany the mattebox tilting capability. The tilting filter ring comprises two similar-sized bellows that can be used as a single unit or stacked together to withstand greater tilt angles. The filter ring can hold a round 138mm filter.

Top Accessory Mount

An accessory mount (sold separately) can be fitted directly onto the mattebox 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.


NOTE: Filters, lenses, and other accessories not included.
