Here is a Filter Holder I had built for my 5" Capping Shutter.

Problem - It is awkward stacking Filters while using a Capping Shutter. You can't get the Shutter close enough to the Lens because of the Matte Box (even with the Shade pulled) and how do you Bellow from the Capping Shutter to the Lens? Hmmm.

Solution - The Capping Shutter Filter Tray with Bellows.

Here it is. It is made from Aluminum. It holds 3 4x5 Trays and an 138 Round. Screws secure the Filters in place. The whole rig hangs on the back of the Capping Shutter. The Bellows velcros onto the Shutter and stretches around the lens.

This has made Time Lapse shoots a joy. It is very easy to pull and change Filters individually as well as pull the entire rig at once to set/ adjust the Frame. My wife did a fantastic job on the Bellows. It is very durable. Sorry for the lousy quality of the (iphone) pics .
