Attach matte box to a lens
In this video I am going to show how to mount a matte box directly onto a lens. The purpose of this is to add more control of the light fall into the lens but also to give it a more professional look. As it will cover the fact that you are using a DSLR and let people know that you are filming. Also some lenses are hard to use in a combination with a rails and matte box as the lens extends the matte box can block the zoom at it does not move with the lens. By attaching it directly to the lens you can zoom in and out without a problem.
