An ultra lightweight matte box, the Bright Tangerine Misfit Atom can clip on to lenses up to 114mm diameter, or mount to 15mm LWS rods with optional attachment.
Fits two 4x5.65" filters. Includes top flag. Optional anti-reflective tilt bracket, 15mm LWS rod mount.
Misfit Atom Pola+
The Misfit Atom Pola Plus adds the ability to hold an additional 138mm rotating filter, and to clamp on to lenses with a front diameter of 143mm, while keeping a similar ultra-light profile to the Misfit Atom.
Includes top flag and 138mm rotating filter ring. Compatible with Misfit Atom accessories.
The Misfit Kick takes modularity up a notch – it can convert from 2 stages to 3 stages without the use of any tools, and from clip-on matte box to studio setup for 15mm or 19mm rods.
Compatible with Bright Tangerine's One Tray, which holds both 4x5.65" and 138mm rotating filters. Works on lenses up to 143mm front diameter.
Viv is Bright Tangerine's modular approach applied to a studio matte box: It's configurable from one to three stages – up to two rotating – and either clips on to lenses from 80mm to 150mm front diameter, or mounts to 15mm LWS, 15mm studio, or 19mm studio rods in direct or swing-away modes. Includes flags and hard mattes.
