Alternatives & Add-Ons:
Clip-on matte boxes are an exercise in minimalism. You want them to be as light as possible, while still retaining acceptable functionality. The Atom saves weight through clever design. Rather than using stages and filter trays (which add weight), the Atom is able to hold two 4 x 5.65 filters directly in its clamp adaptor. These are accessed by detaching the molded rubber sun shade.
The matte box has a native lens opening of 114mm, so it fits most of our cinema lenses directly. What makes this unit extra useful is it comes with two adaptor rings (77mm and 82mm) that can screw-on to many of the most popular still camera lenses. This allows you to put neutral density and other filters in front of a still camera lens. You wouldn’t want to use it on a lens that expands or turns when you focus, but in certain scenarios, it can be indispensable.
