I recently purchased the new Genus “Production" Matte Box Kit after using my beloved and now discontinued PV version for some time.
It was a hard decision to retire the old PV to an occasional status and take on the improved design and professional standard Production model that Genus recently released.
If you are like me, you can make an occasional bad decision buying online. Naturally you hope that you have made the right choice especially buying equipment unseen and untried. Matte Boxes are no different.
But from the moment I unpacked my new Genus Matte Box, I was impressed with that same quality that I enjoyed from my previous PV model but this time with the new design features and accessories which have been well thought out and all included in the package which makes this piece of essential equipment excellent value for money.
If you are shooting with 35mm or like me with a Sony PXW-FS7 and PXW-FS5 style cameras, this Production Matte Box Kit is perfect. Lightweight but strong, Professional in appearance but amazing value for money compared to some other similar kits on the market.
Included, is a set of step up rings which will adapt many lenses of various filter diameters and standardise them to 82mm which then adapts to the Matte Box.
So if you have a few lovely zeiss lenses for instance in your kit you just spin on a appropriate step up ring and ease the matte box back and you are ready to go. I have a swing away kit on order as well which is an additional accessory if you wish.
The Genus website is also user friendly and whole process from order to delivery I found to be a pleasure. Communication and advice on order status was great.
I can only say that you can buy this quality gear with confidence from some very helpful people at www.genustech.tv !
