New ARRI Pro Camera Accessories
LIGHTWEIGHT MATTE BOX LMB-6
Succeeding the classic LMB-4A, the LMB-6 makes all of the innovations of the successful LMB-25 available for larger-sized filters, up to 6.6" x 6.6". This allows a lightweight matte box to be utilized even when extremely wide angle lenses are used on the camera.
We have combined all the great features of our previous ones like the LMB-5 and 15 with new enhancements that are useful for professionals. There are two choices, the LMB-25 (4x5.6 matte box) and the LMB-6 (6x6 matte box).
Two and three-filter stage guides -- Moving from two to three-stage filtration is as easy with the LMB-6 as it is with the LMB-25. The filter stage guides have well-spaced, independent filter frame locks and are machined from solid aluminum.
Top and bottom flag -- Constructed from a sheet of carbon, the LMB-6 top flag offers rigidity without adding excess weight. The flag can be fitted to the top or the bottom of the matte box and folds onto the hood, protecting the lens front element when the camera is moved.
Wide-angle hood -- The LMB-6 hood is easily removable via captive screws that remain attached to the hood at all times and therefore cannot get misplaced. On the ARRI ALEXA, the LMB-6 will cover wide-angle lenses up to the super wide ARRI/ZEISS Ultra Prime 8R.
Accessory mount and tray catcher -- Like the LMB-25, the LMB-6 can be fitted with an accessory mount for 3/8" accessories such as ultrasonic measuring devices. The tray catcher offers security by preventing the loss of a filter frame in precarious and potentially dangerous situations, for example when the matte box is flying on a crane.
Interchangeable clamp adapters -- The LMB-6 can adapt to various lens diameters via a series of interchangeable clamp adapters. The 156 mm clamp adapter will accept all existing LMB-4 ring adapters. A 162 mm clamp adapter is available for the popular Angenieux Optimo 24-290 and 28-340 zoom lenses. Other sizes available are 136 mm, 134 mm, 125 mm 114 mm, 110 mm, 104 mm and 95 mm.
Set of mattes -- The LMB-6 has its own set of five mattes that can be clipped onto the hood, helping to reduce unwanted glare and reflections according to the focal length of the lens being used.
Securing loop -- For shooting situations where safety is paramount, such as when the camera is flying on a crane, the matte box can be secured to the camera rig using a karabiner fixed through the 10 mm securing loop located next to the LMB-6 hood.Securing loop -- For shooting situations where safety is paramount, such as when the camera is flying on a crane, the matte box can be secured to the camera rig using a karabiner fixed through the 10 mm securing loop located next to the LMB-6 hood.
CAGE SYSTEM II
ARRI is introducing a base plate solution that allows standard 15 mm accessories to be used with the top-of-the-range Canon 1Dc and 1Dx DSLR cameras; these models have deep bases that prevent them from working with the classic Mini Base Plate MBP-3. The new plate for the 1Dc and 1Dx is compatible with the ARRI Cage System II and makes use of features on the base of the Canon cameras to prevent body rotation.
The new cage system is designed for cameras that have a base lower than the 15 mm LWS rod standard and that cannot be used with the MBP-3-based ARRI Cage System I.
Cage Console Arm CCA-1 offers a full cage arm without compromising access to the battery pack on DSLR cameras. Accessories and handles can be attached via a 3/8" ARRI interface, and an optically centred 15 mm LWS console can be top-mounted.
Cage Support Right CSR-2 attaches to the Cage Console Arm, providing uncompromised grip and additional mounting options for accessories.
Cage Cable Safe CCS-1 offers protection to internal electronics against accidental stress when using HDMI, USB or audio cables.
Camera Top Handle CTH-1 attaches via a 3/8" ARRI interface and provides grip and various 3/8" and 1/4" interfaces for mounting accessories.
Cage Top Support CHS-2 or CHS-1 links the top of the cage system to the upper base of the camera, preventing any flex in the camera rig.
