Hey everyone,

I have a T2i and I have a Chrosziel matte box that I used to use with my XL2. I was looking into trying to get it to be compatible with my T2i but I'm not really sure what steps I should take. Any suggestions? I know I probably need to get a new baseplate and also a step-down adaptor ring that would fit my Canon lenses and the mattebox. I'm just a little lost on what I should do to get started. Any suggestions would be really helpful.

Here's a picture, if that helps at all. Thanks everyone!

You are already know what most 2 important things you should do! Just do it!
But I think you can find a ring adapter first to prevent lens flares.

I'm assuming that's a 15mm rod setup so this should help you get started.

You should be fine with nun's knickers to seal off entering light. You will probably need a baseplate thats height adjustable but if you can adjust the height of the mattebox you might be just fine.
