Our new and improved Cigar Box™ V 3.0 is perfect for day trips! This economical pochade box takes its name from the 19th century practice of making simple pochade boxes from cigar boxes. Made of basswood laminate, this pochade model is designed for lightweight efficiency.
The hinged lid locks in any position through a 180º arc, measures ½ in deep which will hold up to two 8"x10" panels.
There is a universal tripod mount on the bottom so that this pochade box may be mounted on any standard camera tripod.
The lid comes with two Extension Clips in the bottom to hold panels larger than 8x10
