Designed for extremes, Blacklight is able to clamp-on
to seriously large zooms, take 6x6 filters, and has the
field of view to cover ultra wide lenses. Combining
adjustable flags with 2-stage to 3-stage flexibility,
Blacklight is unique.
Undo the screws, slide open the back, and
insert another filter tray. It's that simple, and it
No costly stages to buy. No time wasted
changing back plates. Reveal stands out.
Our matte boxes aren't just filter holders.
Protecting your lens from stray light improves
contrast and resolution. The carbon fibre blades
are fixed to light alloy axles that stay with the
flag. Remove the flag, remove the weight.
Creating a new standard in compact lightweight matte
boxes, Blacklight is engineered to achieve an incredibly
high strength to weight ratio. Combining a rock solid
carbon fibre core with sophisticated hard anodised alloys,
Blacklight is extremely tough and built to last.
And yes, this image is real and it still works perfectly.

Blacklight is a lightweight matte box with a swing-away option. With a 162mm diameter and 6x6 filter trays, Blacklight is designed for seriously big lenses. As well as being light, Blacklight is made from incredibly strong materials and built to last. The Reveal system allows you to switch from 2-stage to 3-stage in a couple of seconds, saving you valuable time on set. Despite being light, it has exceptional field of view. Blacklight now has the option to be a swing-away matte box for rod mounting making it extremely flexible.
Use clamp-on mode for handheld and Steadicam, or swing-away rod mount for studio setups. Use the adjustable glide rail to mount a Cinetape or even a small light. Remote and dusty locations arenâ€™t a problem as dust and dirt can be easily removed without special tools.
