I've bought and recommend the Genus Matte-Box kit: http://genustech.tv

For the price they are really good, they also make a heap of accessories for DSLR cameras too, and I believe they have a follow focus kit out soon.

Good luck!

I have and like the Petroff matte boxes. They're very light but hold up well. I have the 5x5 and use it on a PDW-530 and PDW-700, it's huge, but it's the only one that will work with the 11x4.5 lenses using rotating filters.

It's light enough to use as a clip on, or you can use it with rods.

"Catpants," you need to change your display name to your real first and last name as per the rules of the forum-- this can be done under "my account" in the upper right corner and then 1/2 the way down on the left hand side under "display name."

As for the Mattebox, I 2nd the Arris.
