The MB-20 Concept – Modular, Functional And Flexible

By adopting a functional, modular approach, the ARRI MB-20 accommodates most modern lenses and standard filter formats. Whether the script calls for a traditional studio setup, handheld move or Steadicam shot, the ARRI MB-20 System adapts to each scenario without a hitch.


The 5.65 x 5.65 Compact Mattebox easily adapts for use with lightweight support, bridgeplate support rods, or clamped on and supported by the camera lens. The swing-away mattebox system works with wide angle lenses and provides two or three independently rotating filter stages for filter sizes up to 5.65 x 5.65. The ARRI MB-20 System includes a unique adjustment system to ensure precise fit. Optional top, bottom and side flags and masks are available for optimal light control.
