Use this clamp-on adapter to convert your microMatteBox into a clamp-on style matte box

Covert Swing-Away to Clamp-On

The Clamp-On Accessory for microMatteBox is a cross-grade kit for the microMatteBox to convert it from rail-mounted swing-away to a clamp-on version. This accessory replaces the matte box rear bellows with a universal clamp-on bracket supporting lenses with front outside diameters up to 136mm. With the Clamp-On Accessory, the microMatteBox no longer needs rail support to be attached to a rig. This makes the microMatteBox perfect for ENG style shooting or any setup looking to shed some weight. The conversion is not permanent, so you can switch between clamp-on and swing-away, whatever your shooting style and production requires.

Use with Zoom Lenses

Zooms lenses are fast becoming the preferred go-to tools for productions that need to be fast, nimble, and always ready to get the shot. These lenses feature a huge range of focal lengths, and enable crews to save time by not constantly changing lenses. Clamp-on matte boxes are the perfect companion for compact zooms and standard cinema zooms, as they allow the overall system to shed weight and size, and become more compact and portable than ever.

Use Both Clamp-On and Swing-Away

With the Clamp-On Accessory for microMatteBox, you can use the microMatteBox as either a swing-away version, or a clamp-on version. Switch between the two modes with minimal fuss and effort, so you can tailor your gear to exactly each shoot’s needs.

The clamp-on matte box works by attaching to the front of your lens. We currently offer the following sizes for the lens outside diameter (not the threaded filter size): 85mm, 95mm, 110mm, 114mm, and 136mm.

Can I attach the Clamp-On Matte Box to my Still Photography Lenses?

Yes, but we offer the caution that lenses must be able to support the weight of the matte box. The Clamp-on Adapter must be attached to a lens that has one of the supported front diameters. Step rings can be used to attach the Clamp-on Adapter to photography lenses, but we only suggest attaching the Clamp-on to lenses with an all-metal construction.
