Mark,

What lenses are you using with the camera? I use older Cooke lenses and something Zeiss Super Speeds with my XTR and I have an older Van Diemen Matte Box (which is actually more of a two stage sun shade with both 4x4 stages able to rotate). It works pretty well for my needs.

If you have the 15mm rods on your camera you can use most standard matte boxes.

Hope that helps.
