The Garden Designs Lightweight Eyebrow is made of Coroplast (the same material used in USPS mail tubs, real estate and location signage). By motion picture production standards it is considered an expendable, but can be depended upon to give many years of service with a reasonable amount of care. This model is designed for the Arri MMB-1 Mini Matte Box.
The eyebrow is a rugged addition to your camera package. It was specifically designed for use on the Steadicam where weight is a factor. This strong but featherweight item weighs in at 4 oz / 113 grams. It also works well in hand-held situations and at any time that you need a lightweight lens shade.
The eyebrow main flap will hold in a precise position because it physically mounts with two thumb screws to Arri's new innovative patent-pending cage design. This cage has two tension adjusting rods, which allow you to lock the eyebrow in an exact position for the length of your shot. The eyebrow includes a fine adjustment front friction-hinged flap that can be set quickly with the touch of your fingers. The eyebrow also includes two easily removable side flaps.
Limited Warranty: Each eyebrow comes with a limited one-year material defects warranty from the date of purchase, with proof of receipt. The warranty is void if product shows signs of excessive abuse. No other warranties are expressed or implied.
The name Coroplast applies to a wide range of extruded twin-wall plastic sheet products designed for increased impact resistance and cold weather performance. This durable material is also used because it can be flexed an unlimited number of times without breaking. This unique ability is called "a living hinge."
Coroplast is chemically inert; water, solvents and most oils have no adverse effect, allowing it to perform under a variety of weather conditions.
Coroplast is 100% recyclable, coded 5 by the Society of the Plastics Industry.
In Europe this Eyebrow product has the following additional names; French Flag, Light Shield, Sunshade, Top Flag and Bottom Flag.
