4x5.65 +3 Diopter Brilliant² Tray Mount Close-Up Lens
- The 4"x5.65" +3 Diopter Brilliant² Tray Mount Close-Up Lens fits directly into 4"x5.65" matte boxes, occupying 3 slots in the matte box.
A close-up lens with a strength of +3 is used to get extreme close-up images of small objects when the cine lens being used won't focus that closely.
To create the Brilliant² Tray Mount Close-Up Lens series we've mounted our 138mm Close-Up Lenses (Diopters) in a 4"x5.65" matte box tray. These large 138mm round lenses provide a 5.1" diameter clear aperture in the tray, allowing use with large lenses and wide angle lenses. All of our lenses have a broadband multi-layer anti-reflection coating (MC Coating).
The unique tray mount design allows quick and easy changes of close-up lenses in both clip-on and rod mount matte boxes.
They are available in 5 strengths: +1/4, +1/2, +1, +2 and +3 Diopter
The +1/4, +1/2 and +1 fit in one slot. The +2 uses 2 slots and the +3 uses 3 slots in the matte box.
The Brilliant2 Tray Mount Close-Up Lenses (Diopters) fit in Arri™, Bright Tangerine™, Chrosziel™, Vocas™ and other professional 4x5.65 cine matte boxes. They do not work with RedRock Micro™ matte boxes.
For absolutely the highest quality macro images, consider our Brilliant Macro Lenses.
I purchased the +3 diopter in order to achieve extreme close-ups for an upcoming project without swapping between anamorphic and spherical macro lenses. This filter works beautifully by shortening dramatically the focus distance of the lens without compromising on optical qualities. Please note that the tray for +3 diopters does NOT fit all 3-stage matte boxes, such as my Bright Tangerine Viv matte box. Lindsey Optics was kind enough to solve this issue for me by shipping a retaining ring and spanner free of charge. In a few minutes, I was able to remove the filter from its tray and insert it into the ring. Once mounted on a 138mm donut at the back of the matte box, it does the trick perfectly, while leaving all 3 stages available for additional filters. I have tested the diopter with Atlas Orion 40/65/100mm lenses and would warmly recommend it as a valuable asset in any filmmaker's collection.
