I'm looking to buy a matte box in the next couple days, and would love some insight on the matter. I would preferably like to spend $1500 or less, as the MB is one of the least important accessories to me right now (still need to upgrade my FF and sticks).
Here's a couple that I'm looking at:
D|Matte - $300 - screw on, uses the filter threads, seems too cheap for my needs, but thought I'd list it
Trusmt Matte Box - $450 (with flags, donuts, everything)- I'm looking at this one the most right now, since I've heard nothing but glowing reviews for it, and it has rotating 4x4 filters, swings away, made of carbon fiber, and seems overall solid construction.
Shoot35 Matte Box - $600 (starting price) - 4x4, swingaway, rotating, but too cheap? Reviews are mixed.
Cinevate MB - $900 - Same functions as Trusmt, but is it any better?
Redrock MB - starts at $900 - Modular, swings away, can rotate, but I've used before and really don't like how clunky it is.
Any other suggestions? Especially if anyone has experience with the Trusmt, because that really seems like the best of the lot to me, especially for the price.
