The LanParte MB-02 4 x 5.65″ Rod Mounted Swing Away Matte Box for 15mm Rods is a 4 x 5.65″ matte box that features carbon fiber and aluminum construction that makes it lightweight and durable. Designed to work with lenses with a maximum outer diameter of 150mm, the matte box features two rotating 4 x 5.65″ (Panavision-sized) filter stages and mounts onto lightweight 15mm rods. The matte box incorporates a swing-away design for rapid lens changes, and features 1″ of height adjustment that allows you to adjust for non-standard camera heights.
Both filter trays can slide in the rotating stages, allowing you to adjust their height. The included removable top and side flags can be precisely set and locked to block stray light from flaring your lens. An anti-reflection fabric sleeve is included to protect your image by blocking stray light from behind the camera sneaking around the lens and bouncing off of filters in the matte box. Please note the matte box does not include any support rods.

Top & Side Flags
- The removable top and side flags provide you additional flare control and attach to the matte box with a lockable hinged assembly. This allows you to precisely set your flags to match the edge of frame for different lenses and lock them in place so that they don’t move during the shot.
- Each side flag is made from two pieces with a pivot point that allows you to pivot the outer flap approximately 45° providing additional height so that the side flags can butt up against the top flag when it is in a raised position. The outer flap of the side flags run in a track, and a locking thumb nut allows you to lock the side flags pivot adjustment.
