I recently shot with a Aaton LTR 54. Great little camera. But we were using Zeiss Super speeds and an Arri FF4 and a Red Rock Micro Mattebox. The problem we had was the FF4 and the Mattebox couldn't be used together because the there wasn't enough room on the rods.

The design of the Aaton might have something to do with it as well. The lens mount is set back from the lower part of the body by a good inch. So we couldn't tuck the FF back any further.. although it would have still reached the focus rings.

Does anyone have any good suggestions for FF and mattebox combinations for a Aaton LTR 54? Usually we will use the Zeiss MKIII super speed primes.

Thanks in advance.
