All MatteBoxes and SunShades1 for 15mm rods can now be equipped with the patented Chrosziel Direct Swing-Away-System DSW. It allows them to swing away and thus accelerates lens change.

The new DSW 500 Adaptor with its pivoting radius of 100mm provides comfortable lens change not only for owners of Chrosziel MatteBoxes, but also for customers of competitiors’ products.

With the DSW 500 Adaptor, all Chrosziel Sunshades and MatteBoxes can now be used with a Swing-Away System.
