I'm looking at the 2 stage with the French flag setup and the Pola.
The matte box has rings that can be purchased separately to adapt
up to 85mm for most DV cameras.
No affiliation with anybody.
That looks like the same mattebox as the Image2000, or at least
very similar. For that price the Vocas (sold in the US by Century
Precision Optics with their own nameplate) with its clever interior
eyebrows looks more appealing to me.
I've used the Polas in the square trays with the gear a few times
and they work fine. They're actually easier and quicker to use then
fumbling with a circular tray in many matteboxes. Century makes
then but I've seen it from others as well in various sizes.

rotating Pola which has a >small wheel built into the 4x4 frame.
It rotates the round Pola within the >square frame. Anyone have
any experience with them?
I too have had my eye on that one. Seems like a great concept. I
don't like having to fumble with the clamp of a clip on matte box
in order keep the shade aligned.
