Light Widow 4×5 Anti-Reflection Wedge

The Light Widow 4×5 Anti-Reflection Wedge was specifically designed to be used in clamp-on style 4×5.65 matte boxes as a tool to mitigate reflections between filters. It also stops reflections between a filter and the front element of the camera lens.

So how does it actually work? Well, by holding one or more of the trays in a tilted position the 4×5 Anti-Reflection Wedge won’t allow excess light to enter the matte box.
