Vocas Systems, a Netherlands-based manufacturer of innovative, professional-calibre camera accessories, will showcase three new matte boxes.
The Vocas MB-216 (a successor to the M-215) works with most wide angle lenses in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, and is wide enough to accommodate most cameras with a wide angle converter without vignetting. It includes one rotatable 4×4-inch filter tray and space for a fixed 4×4-inch filter in the front of the hood.
The Vocas MB-256 (a successor to the M-255) is designed for use with Zeiss CP.2 lenses and is compatible with lenses with a front-side diameter up to 114mm. It also includes one rotatable 4×4-inch filter tray and space for a fixed 4×4-inch filter in the front of the hood. MB-256 features a patented heavy-duty French flag clamper and patented internal eyebrows for maximum lens flare reduction.
New for Vocas, both matte boxes feature top-bars mounts for increased stability. They also feature a quick-lock mounting system that attaches directly to the front lens barrel of 114mm lenses.
Additionally, the new matte boxes can now be used with the Vocas 15mm Swing-Away Bracket. This handy accessory allows the user to detach the matte box from the lens quickly and without disassembling the entire set up.
The new Vocas MB-436 (a successor to the MB0435) is an affordable 4×5.65-inch matte box compatible with big lenses, and the latest large-sensor and 3D cameras. It is packed with features that protect the camera and enhance creativity. It, too, is now mountable to top bars, and is compatible with the Swing-Away Bracket and other Vocas accessories.
All Vocas matte boxes include a new locking mechanism that makes it easier to adjust locking strength and prevents the clamper from falling out of the locking mechanism.
