SmallRig today announced a previously teased product: a new compact and lightweight matte box. In keeping with their numeric product identifiers, this one is called the 2660. Made of carbon fiber and aluminum, it comes in at a low weight of just 238g. It features a standard 114mm clamp for direct attachment with compatible lenses. It also comes with a number of adapter rings from 67mm to 82mm so it can be attached to just about any lens.
The matte box holds up to two standard 4" x 4" or 4" x 5.65" filters. Additional accessories such as larger ring adapters and a rod support are sold separately.
SmallRig has also released a new rod support
designed for the matte box.
User feedback regarding the rather silly graphic design on the flag/eyebrow has been heard loud and clear by SmallRig. They've begun taking suggestions
for a new design.
UPDATE Dec 2020
SmallRig has demonstrated that the graphic design on the flag is just a sticker that can be easily removed. The flag itself has no design, just the carbon fiber look.
