The ARRI MB-19 Studio Matte Box is a compact, lightweight production mattebox, which is ideally suited for use with the ARRIFLEX 16SR 3 in Super 16 format. When mounted on the lightweight support LWS-3, graduated filters can be pushed through unhindered. Side flags with adjustable segments, used in conjunction with the top light shield, provide optimum protection against unwanted light. 

The MB-19 is supplied with a filter stage for (2) 4" x 5.65" filters. The front filter can be pushed through vertically, and the rear filter can be displaced horizontally and additionally rotated. The filter stage is fitted with a rear receptacle for 138mm diameter filter rings as well as for an additional filter stage for one 4" x 5.65" filter and one 138mm round filter. 

To simplify lens changing, the mattebox swings away from the console. For quick adaptation to different lens lengths, it can be moved forward and backward with a lockable adjustment knob. A holder for secure mounting of french flags is included.

Also available are sets of clip-on hard mattes for use with both 16mm and 35mm formats. By use of additional adapters the mattebox can also be mounted on 15mm or 19mm studio support rods of conventional bridge plates.
