ARRI, Las Vegas, 14 April 2015: The ARRI line of Pro Camera Accessories now include the new Triple Filter Frame and the SMB-1 Adapter for SMB-2 Filter Stages, designed especially for its range of studio matte boxes.
The Triple Filter Frame stacks two or three glass filters together in a single filter frame that occupies two regular matte box slots. ARRI’s Studio Matte Boxes SMB-1 and SMB-2 have an integrated tilt module designed to control unwanted reflections between filter surfaces, the lens front element and the camera sensor glass. Reflections can also develop under some circumstances between filter surfaces, which is not always controlled by solely tilting the matte box. Used in combination with either the SMB-1 or SMB-2 tilting feature, stacking the filters together in the Triple Filter Frame is a proven method of preventing these types of reflections.
Available in 4 x 5.65″ and 6.6 x 6.6″ sizes, the Triple Filter Frame will be available end of May 2015 for AU$379 and AU$442 respectively.
The SMB-1 Adapter for SMB-2 Filter Stages is a step-down adapter that permits SMB-2 4″ x 5.65″ filter stages to be mounted to the SMB-1 6.6″x 6.6″, without affecting wide-angle coverage. The adapter also allows SMB-2 filter stages to be mounted to the back of a stack of SMB-1 filter stages. The filter stage adapter will be available at the beginning of June 2015 for $537 (€340).
