Whether you are shooting with a DSLR or the latest digital cinema camera with a cinema zoom lens, the microMatteBox is up to the task.

The Only Matte box you’ll Ever Need

The Redrock microMatteBox is the original industry-leading matte box for independent productions and owner/operators, and continues to be used by thousands of filmmakers in countless productions worldwide.

Whether you are shooting with a DSLR or the latest digital cinema camera with a cinema zoom lens, the microMatteBox is up to the task.

This professional-grade matte box gives you control over your light, enhancing your image with its expandable filter stage system, and control over your future by providing a uniquely modular system that is compatible with virtually any camera and lens for years to come.

Control the Light

The matte box shade controls the light that enters your lens. It prevents unwanted light from hitting your lens, which can introduce unwanted and distracting flares to your image. The full-size lens shade and removable matte maximizes light protection, but also works with lenses as wide as 20mm (on 35mm full frame equivalent).

The microMatteBox has the ability to further extend and control this protection with a top flag, side flags, and even a bottom flag. Flags give you extended control over what light comes in contact with the lens.

Enhance the Image

The filter stages enable you to enhance or modify the light to control exposure, add creative effects, or improve the overall image that often is not possible in post-production. The microMatteBox enables you to use industry standard filters in as few or as many at one time as you wish. Use ND filters to cut down the light and open the lens aperture for more cinematic selective focus. Rotating stages enable a polarizer filter to dial in just the right amount of blue sky, or precisely align a graduated ND with the horizon.

Protect Your Lenses

Your lenses are one of the most important investments you will make, and the microMatteBox can help you protect them. With its large high-impact ABS shade and all-aluminum construction, protects your lenses from unwanted dust, dings, or unexpected falls.

Control Your Future

With a truly universal design, the microMatteBox is the only mattebox you will ever need. It can work with virtually every camera on the planet – from DSLR to Arri Alexa – and everything in between. Whether you are upgrading your camera body, or renting one for a special project, you can use your microMatteBox with confidence.

The large rear lens opening supports lenses with a front element up to 138mm in diameter, so even the largest cinema zooms are covered. Even the filter trays can support the most popular filter sizes and give you the coverage you need.
