I am searching for a relatively inexepensive matte box with rails and an adapter plate for an Auricon CM-72. I have a 60mm zoom lens and I am hoping to use an anamorphic adapter. Any suggestions? Thanks! Roger.

As these cameras have been out of production for 40+ years, you'll have to rig something up. If I may suggest a cheap alternative, scour Ebay for a "Sailwind" or similar bellows-type lens shade for medium format cameras. These accept slide-in filters and make a pretty good starting point for a home-made matte box. They're square, of course, but you can cut a mask with an opening in the correct aspect ratio for 16mm and slide it into the front of the bellows. Hope this helps.
