Tilta MB-T16 Overview
Built rugged for daily use on your camera rig yet lightweight for handheld, gimbal, stabilizer, or drone work, the Tilta Mirage Motorized VND Kit is a modular component system combining a matte box that clips onto 95mm OD and a variable ND system with a motor and wireless controller that allows you to precisely adjust the ND effect from 0.3 to 2.7 stops when needed. The matte box weighs about the same as a standard 4 x 5.65″ glass filter, and it accepts Tilta’s 95mm round filters with the included filter adapter. The modular design means you can configure the matte box to match your needs on a shot-by-shot basis.
The included rigid hood and removable top flag aid in cutting glare and protecting your image from overhead flares. Four included lens adapters enable mounting the Mirage Matte Box on lenses with 67, 72, 77, or 82mm threaded fronts. The included 15mm LWS rod clamp can be attached, allowing you to mount the Mirage on rods to take the weight off your lens or use lenses with rotating fronts. An optional 4 x 5.65″ stackable filter holder lets you mount 4 x 5.65″ filters on the matte box. Other modular components, such as a top flag, dual circular filter tray, filter protector, and rubber hood for shooting up against windows, are available separately.
