To create the Brilliant² Tray Mount Close-Up Lens Diopter series, Lindsey Optics mounted 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.
The unique tray mount design allows quick and easy changes of close-up lenses in both clip-on and rod mount matte boxes.
All lenses have a broadband multi-layer anti-reflection coating (MC Coating). This dramatically reduces light loss and flare. Contrast, color saturation and image quality are preserved.
They are available in 5 strengths: +1/4, +1/2, +1, +2 and +3 Diopter. Use the +1/4 when you need to get just a tiny bit closer. The +1 gets you close . . . the +3 gets you VERY close.
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 is also available as a set. The set includes values of +1/4, +1/2, +1, +2 and +3 Diopter.
The Brilliant2 diopters fit in Arri™, Bright Tangerine™, Chrosziel™, Vocas™ and other 4x5.65 professional cine matte boxes. They do not work with RedRock Micro™ matte boxes.
