Want to sparkle up your shot with some glimmer glass? Or reduce and control your highlights with some black satin – whatever filter it is, you are gonna need a matte box to hold it on place! Meet the slightly smaller brother to the MB-14 – The Arri MB-18 steps in when an MB-14 is too large for your production, but you need sturdiness and minute filter control.

The MB-18 is a flexible wide-angle studio matte box that can be used with primes and various zoom Lenses. Control comes from two independently sliding filter stages and an additional geared tray that allows you to precisely align your chosen filter as necessary, whilst sturdiness comes from the 19mm rigging option. Kit supplied with all the various accessories needed. Please note a this matte box is only suitable for cameras with studio bridge plates.
