    Barry, in what way would the Chrosziel not work with your wide-angle and tele adapters? I have the same mattebox and bought it specifically because I thought I would want it to work with a wide angle adapter (which I haven't tried yet) and that being a 16x9 box, it would.

    Can you describe the incompatibility?

    Also, Barry - which Vocas mattebox are you using? I'm finding it tricky to match up what's on the Vocas site with what I see at various dealers' sites here in the UK. Which model did you go for?

    Well, now that you ask that, I don't know the answer. It's been several months and I forgot. I know it's the wide-angle version with two filter slots, I believe they call it MK II Wide Angle.

    I have the .6 wide-angle and the 1.6 telephoto. The .6 wide-angle vignettes on the Chrosziel (i.e., you can see the edges of the chrosziel mattebox in the corners of your frame). And the 1.6 tele doesn't fit inside the back ring of the chrosziel box. It's too big.

    Whereas with the Vocas, both work perfectly. No vignetting on the wide-angle, and the back ring on the Vocas snugs up nicely around the teleconverter.

    It was in reference to the model number.

    The french flag seems pretty solid to me, don't know how it'll perform in your circumstances of course but I've never had it drop on me.

    I wasn't satisfied with the wide-angle or telephoto on the Chrosziel, which is one reason I sold it off. There's one thing that I did like about the Chrosziel is that it could use dirt-cheap CAvision filter holders, Vocas wants very high prices for their filter holders!

    You can take a look at the Vocas Mattebox on their website www.vocas.com. What you want is the MB-250 which is usually sold as Kit I for HVX 200. I use this Mattebox as well and can recommend it, but I think a cheaper one would do as well for most situatons.

    edit:
    Strange...on the bill it says Kit I and on the dealer's site it says Kit I as well, but on the actual box it came in it says Kit II. Anyway it has to contain the MB-250.

    Thanks for the scoop Barry, I went with Cinetactics Matteblox. I expressed my worries to Greg that I might not impress the chics with it, like the Vocas but hey, it folds up and will fit tightly into a pocket on my pack, and its a solid fix of velcro.
