Normally a Matte box that can hold filters will cost you at least more than $100, but we are now showing you how to get it one for even less. Watch the video, how I show you all the parts needed and what you need to do to modify the affordable Matte box into a professional matte box that would hold filters too.

Parts list

$15 - Matte Box

$2 - Cokin 82mm adapter

$1 - Cokin P filter holder


$2 - Cokin hood

$15 - Cokin P194 Gelatine holder

$20 - Cokin Sets with ND filters

Another tip for when the flags of the Matte box start to get loose and not hold it place is to put super glue in between the joints and keep moving the flags until its fully dry. What will happen is that the glue will seep into the cracks and close the open space and give more grip to keep the flag in place.
