Hi I am looking for filters for my redrock matebox which fits 4x5.65" or even 4x4". As such filters are very expensive I would like to know if better go with 4x4 be able to use it with smaller mateboxes. Also I have found expensive ones from Schneider or Tiffen. Is there any brand which offers a set of filters bit less expensive but good quality?

Many thanks.

There's also Format. I use all 3, I prefer Tiffen, though. They have "resin," filters as well which are considerably cheaper, but I've only ever used glass. I use 4x4, but that's as I have a 4x4 matte box. Were I using 35mm I'd go for a 4.5x4.5 or 6x6 matte box, but that'd be a rental.

Were I you, and I'm not, you'd gotta realize you buy filters to keep for a long while, so you ought invest in them well with good brands over time. You can rent to round out what you need as you build up your kit. The filters, mind you, can outlast most of your cameras....
