Product Highlights

The Rota-Pola Tray with Circular Polarizer (fliter included) is a geared filter tray designed and manufactured in the USA from aircraft grade aluminum and poly materials designed to interface with the latest 4×5.65 matte boxes on the market today.  Commonly referred to as a RotaPola, this geared tray allows for a use of a common 138mmm unmounted circular Polarizer in a rectangular 4×5.65 tray.  The Rota-Pola Circular Polarizer filter is a mid-efficiency Circular Polarizer constructed of Schott B270 glass featuring 38% transmission (1.5 average stop loss) with a Broadband Anti-Reflective Coating. The Rota-Tray is also available without glass so you can purchase your own Polarizer or Special Effect filters from leading filter manufacturers.

Built into a single-stage self-contained unit, the Rota-Pola Rota-Tray 4×5.65 with Circular Polarizer is a compact, easily rotatable polarizing solution for most matte boxes that accept 4×5.65″ filters. Rather than requiring a full 4×5.65″ glass filter, the Rota-Tray uses an included 138mm-diameter filter which sits inside the rotating tray. If the polarizer needs to be adjusted, simply rotate one of the geared wheels, which extend from the top of the tray on either side.

The included filter is a 138mm mid-efficiency circular polarizer manufactured from Schott B270 glass. It features 38% transmission (1.5 stops of light loss) and Broadband anti-reflective coating for reducing unwanted flares. The tray itself has a lightweight and rigid aluminum construction.

Simply insert it into a top loading 4×5.65 size matte box tray slot and spin the gear on either side of the filter tray to rotate the filter inside.  This allows for easy rotation of the filter without the need for cumbersome locking and unlocking of a rotating filter stage.  The Rota-Tray also allows for rotation of a filter in matte boxes that do not feature a rotating filter stage or if a secondary rotating filter is needed in a non-rotating stage.

The Rota-Pola also has features missing from other competitive products such as standard 0.8 pitch gears on both sides of the filter tray for use from either the operator or dumb side of the camera, a 1/4-20 female threaded hole for mounting of a wireless follow focus for remote crane or jib operation of the filter, and an overall low weight and profile design for maximum convenience.

The Revar Cine Rota-Pola Circular Polarizer is a mid-efficiency Circular Polarizer constructed of Schott B270 glass featuring 38% transmission (1.5 average stop loss) and a special military spec hard Broadband Anti-Reflective Coating that minimizes reflections and resists scratches from everyday use for optimal image quality.

The Rota-Pola is also available with no glass so you may choose to purchase your own Polarizer or Special Effect filters from leading filter manufacturers.  Simply order an unmounted 138mm filter and confirm that it has a dimension of  5.236″ +/-0.010″ diameter and 0.135″ +/- 0.005″ thickness.

Perhaps the largest innovation with Rota-Pola is the price.  Compare at an average savings of 40%-70% to competitive products with more features and freshly updated design for today’s cameras and matte boxes.

Compatible with Bright Tangerine, Arri, Vocas, Chrosziel, OConnor O-Box, and many other matteboxes on the market today.  Not compatible with RedRock Micro Matteboxes.
