Tiffen Multi Rota Tray…The world’s lightest geared rotating
138mm Circular Polarizer “and only” 4×5.650 Variable ND tray on the market!

The Tiffen Multi Rota Tray (MRT) is a geared rotating tray that allows the use and rotation of a 138mm Circular Polarizer and Variable ND in a 4×5.650 tray and is ideal for matte boxes without a rotating filter stage or for those instances where a secondary rotating filter stage is required in a non-rotating stage.

The Tiffen Multi Rota Tray is designed to fit into a variety of Matte Boxes which conform to ARRI R2 design standards.

The thought behind our new “Multi Rota Tray” (MRT) was to design an Arri R2 standard thickness filter tray that could be used not only as a Rota Pola, but also double up as a Variable Neutral Density (VND) filter, since a VND is two matched Circular Polarizers used in a pre-alignment combination, where one rotates and the other remains still.

A) reducing the thickness of the glass filters

B) developed a tray that could accommodate a rotating and fixed filter within it! This is what our NEW patent-pending “Multi Rota Tray” (MRT) delivers.

By taking this approach we have taken the standard Pola Tray concept to new heights of creative exposure control.
