Bright Tangerine introduces the Misfit Kick II, enhanced for an exceptional user experience
1 September 2023
GTC Sponsor, Bright Tangerine announce the launch of its new product, the Misfit Kick Mk II. This matte box is an innovative advancement from the original Misfit Kick.
Its lightweight design and versatile features enable cinematographers to work with confidence, delivering results faster than ever before. The new updated version of the matte box also comes with several improvements providing users with more options for creating unique images.
All-new Quick Release Top Flag with Torsion Plate
Users will immediately notice a distinct difference in the new mounting mechanism for the top flag, which allows for quick and effortless installation in a matter of seconds. By simply aligning the notches and tightening the two large thumbscrews, users can securely fasten the flag.
Another notable enhancement is the introduction of the Torsion Plate on the flags. This revolutionary addition spans the entire length of the flag, effectively absorbing and dampening vibrations that could potentially impact the setup.
When used handheld, filmmakers will experience reduced fatigue and, when mounted on a vehicle, they will enjoy sharper and clearer images.
The Misfit Kick Evolution Continues
The Misfit Kick Mk II showcases the innovative Reveal Stage for tool-less conversion from 2-stage to 3-stage, Frame Safe clamp adapters for wider coverage, compatibility with ARRI components, and a lightweight yet durable carbon fiber construction.
Users have the flexibility to customise the Misfit Kick Mk II according to their preferences, whether they opt for a compact handheld setup or expand it with swing-away and studio support options.
Start from a selection of kits or build out your own with a wide range of accessories.
