Tiltaing MB-T15 Mini Matte Box

The Mini Matte Box is made for use with DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. According to Tilta, it is a light-weight yet durable matte box that can accommodate screw-on or 4×5.65″ filters. It weighs only 140g (4.9oz) and features a french flag with 180 degrees of coverage. There are several 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threads and cold shoe mounts which provide mounting points for accessories.

The added benefit of this matte box are two filter options. The front of the matte box provides a slot for any standard 4×5.65″ filter. Screw-on filters can be attached to the adapter rings via the inside threading that match each adapter ring diameter.

The Kit includes the Tiltaing Mini Matte Box, the french flag, and four adapter rings (82mm, 77mm, 72mm, and 67mm). Tilta also offers additional adapter rings in non standard sizes. The kit also includes a 15mm matte box support that attaches to the bottom of it (does not support telescoping front element lenses).

Tiltaing FF-T06 Mini Follow Focus

The Tiltaing FF-T06 Mini Follow Focus has been designed as an affordable mechanical alternative to wireless follow focus systems like Tilta Nucleus-M or Nucleus Nano. Its compact size and weight makes it suitable for smaller camera rigs. It weighs only 220g (7.7oz).

The Mini Follow Focus is made as a single unit with the ability to adjust the single rod attachment to fit cine lens or photo lens of various sizes. The single rod attachment mounts to any standard 15mm rail.
