Does anyone know if this mattebox will fit on the hmc 150 or hpx 170?

It's compatible with the dvx 100.

Thanks

Since it uses 15mm rods to support the mattebox I'd say it "should" fit. If it uses the dvx bayonet mount then it won't fit but it looks to include a 72mm universal adapter. As long as it positions the matte box in the right place you'll be fine. I have my Chrosziel mounted on similar 15mm rods with a riser until Chrosziel makes an HMC/HPX adapter.

Thanks Shrigg .
Looks like I'll have to wait.
Still downloading you footy .
Noticed any difference shooting outside with the mattebox and without it ?

Well the French flag can be positioned lower than the stock hood so I get less flare shooting into the sun or front-facing studio lights
