Genus unveils wide matte box

Genus is featuring a new version of its 4x4 Matte Box offering a third bracket screw to further strengthen the two filter trays and reduce the light gap between the two filter trays at the NAB Show in Las Vegas.

The new unit has been widened on the front rayshade and the first fixed filter tray, enabling wide-angle attachment lenses, such as Century Optics wide-angle adaptors for the Sony HVR-Z1 and the Panasonic HVX-200 type camcorders, to be used on the Genus system without clipping.

Two filter trays come standard with the Genus Matte Box, along with a doughnut ring and a screw-in adaptor ring. The unit also currently has an adaptor bar bracket (for rods) standard.

See Genus at the NAB Show in Booth C8720.
