Tiffen Variable ND System. 2 x polarizers mounted in Tiffen Multi Rota Tray

Tiffen Multi Rota Tray (Circular Polarizer) to achieve variable ND effect.


A very clever PV sized double ND filter tray (5.65" x 4"), which achieves variable ND from 0.5 to infinity by virtue of a thumbwheel control, which is really useful when used with matte boxes without a rotating stage, like ARRI LMB25.


Filter Size

PV (5.65" x 4")

The Tiffen Multi Rota Tray with 138mm Circular Polarizer is a geared rotating tray that allows the use and rotation of a 138mm circular polarizer filter in a single 4×5.65″ filter tray. The tray is designed for use with matte boxes that lack a rotating filter stage, such as LMB25, or for instances where a secondary rotating filter stage is required in a non-rotating stage. The filter fits into matte boxes that conform to the ARRI R2 tray size standard. The geared adjustment provides precise either by control by hand or by a 0.8 MOD (32 pitch) gear wheel on a follow focus.

The Multi Rota Tray can be used with just the included geared 138mm Circular Polarizer, or paired with the optional 4×5.65″ Circular Polarizer to function as a variable neutral density filter or to produce warm/cool effects, depending on the direction the tray and 4×5.65″ filter are facing. The Tiffen Multi Rota Tray comes packaged in a rugged, compartmentalized storage case for protection and easy transport of the tray and included filter.
