While I stopped by ePhoto today I noticed that they’ve dropped the price on their Matte Box Bundle on Amazon. This ePhoto DSLR Matte Box Pro Complete Bundle comes with: 15mm Swing-away Arm, Top French Flags & Side Wings, 4 Neoprene Donuts, 2 Independent Rotatable Filter Stages and 2 Filter Trays for only $229 right now with FREE SHIPPING on Amazon. This is an incredibly low price, ePhoto just dropped it down to 54% off of the original asking price.
The top French flag and side wings are detachable, and the bayonets lock the flags in tightly so there is no fall off. The swing-away arm makes changing lenses an easy task. This feature is super useful when you’re shooting with multiple lenses. This matte box ships with 4 different size neoprene donuts that make it possible for you to fit various lens sizes with. The ePhoto Matte Box Pro is also height adjustable and the French flags are made out of metal.
**An important note** This matte box also comes with 2 universal 360 degree rotating filter stages and 2 filter trays that support both 4×4″ and 4×5.65″ filter sizes. Customers who have used this same style of matte box (sold under different retailer names) have stated that the filter stages and trays are ineffective and do not hold the filters. Below are two videos from users of this type of matte box. One is satisfied, the other pointing out the shortcomings of it. If you are NOT using fliters, this matte box may still be a really great option.
