The Irix Matte Box IQ compendium was created for operators and filmmakers who want to get even better results from their shots. We created the Matte Box from the need to allow the use of Irix magnetic filters with any lens, thanks to which operators can enjoy creative freedom and flexibility in the selection of tools.
The Matte Box is also a useful tool for eliminating unwanted flares and other reflections, keeping your shots sharp and precise. This is especially important when shooting in difficult lighting conditions or spaces with high light intensity. Irix Matte Box is an important tool for filmmakers who want to get the best results from their shots and constantly look for new creative possibilities.
From now on, it doesn't matter what lens you have. You can use Irix magnetic filters on each of them, which will allow you to work on plans even more efficiently and comfortably. Every cinematographer knows the important role filters play in creating exceptional shots. That is why the Irix Matte Box was created so that you can put on and take off filters as quickly as possible. Magnetic Mount (MMS) has been moved from Irix Cine lenses to the Matte Box, so you can enjoy all the benefits of Irix filters, regardless of which lens is your favorite.
Both you and we know perfectly well that each shot is different and requires an individual approach. That's why we wanted to give you flexibility in choosing the diameter for your Irix Matte Box. It’s natively mounted to the outer flange of the lens with a diameter of 95 mm, but additional adapters are also available to attach it to standard filter threads with diameters from 52mm to 86mm. Regardless of whether you use wide-angle lenses or telephoto lenses, the Irix Matte Box will help you catch that perfect shot you have planned. All this for unlimited filming possibilities.
If you like ultra-wide shots, you will be pleased to know that we have designed the Irix Matte Box so that you can use it from 15mm to full frame. This is a great option for people who want to get even better results in a wide frame.
If you're a filmmaker or cinematographer, you know that the amount of equipment you need to bring to the set can be overwhelming. That is why we have developed the maximum light and compact design of the Matte Box, so that you can always have it with you in your backpack and remain mobile, no matter where you are.
We created a lightweight and durable carbon fiber compendium and coated it with a matte coating to prevent internal reflections. So you can be sure that no accidental reflections will spoil your shot. The upper flag additionally protects the lens from sunlight and other light sources, allowing for a clean and clear image.
