Misfit.

4x5.65 Clamp-on matte box.

Misfit is designed to be ultra compact and
lightweight, yet has the field of view to cover
wide lenses.

Combining adjustable lightweight flags with
2-stage to 3-stage flexibility, Misfit retains the
simplicity of a clamp-on matte box, and adds
a range of innovative features.

Smaller and lighter.

Keep it simple.

Sometimes it's good to be compact, and
Misfit is perfect partner to a small rig.
Light enough to take to any location, and
small enough to manoeuvre in any space.

Adjustable lightweight flags.

Superior light control.

Our matte boxes aren't just filter holders.
Protecting your lens from stray light improves
contrast and resolution. The carbon fibre blades
are fixed to light alloy axles that stay with the
flag. Remove the flag, remove the weight.

Reveal.

2-stage to 3-stage in seconds.

Undo the screws, slide open the back, and
insert another filter tray. It's that simple, and it
takes seconds.

No costly stages to buy. No time wasted
changing back plates. Reveal stands out.

Adjustable glide rail.

A mounting point with a difference.

A feather light floating hole. The 3/8" mounting point
means you can attach a small LED light, a monitor or 
best of all, a Cinetape for tracking distance. Simply
twist, slide and place it wherever you want, or remove it
in seconds.

Incredibly robust.

A step up in strength.

Creating a new standard in compact lightweight matte
boxes, Misfit is engineered to achieve an incredibly high
strength to weight ratio. Combining a rock solid carbon
fibre core with sophisticated hard anodised alloys, Misfit is
extremely tough and built to last.

This image is real. We did it, so you don't have to.

Quick release.

Swing away to clamp-on in seconds.

With the addition of the lightweight arm, Misfit
becomes a fully functioning studio matte box.

Once attached the arm can be removed in seconds.
Simply release the lock, slide the matte box off the
arm, and you're ready to go in clamp on mode.

Swing away slide core.

Faster lens changes.

Misfit is able to slide forward and swing
away in an effortless motion to make lens
changes quick and simple, giving you
more time to focus on what's important.

Vertical rise

Everything lines up nicely

There are many great new accessories out there,
but sometimes things don’t line up.

Our vertical height adjustment system allows
you 12.5mm of movement. Meaning whatever
accessories you use, your matte box works.

Swing away up to 12.5mm (tool less)
Rod bracket up to 10.5mm

Wider field of view.

It's what we do best.

Cover lenses as wide as a 14mm Cooke S4, and still
use 3 filter stages. Use RED Pro Zooms at 5K.

Vignettes are a thing of the past.

What are boundaries for?

At Bright Tangerine, we believe they are there to be pushed.
And we design for those who push them.

Misfit is a compact lightweight matte box with a swing-away option. Light enough for use on practically any camera, and small enough to take anywhere. As well as being light, Misfit is made from incredibly strong materials and built to last. The Reveal system allows you to switch from 2-stage to 3-stage in a couple of seconds, saving you valuable time on set. Despite being small and light, it has exceptional field of view. Misfit now has the option to be a swing-away matte box for rod mounting making it extremely flexible.

Use clamp-on mode for handheld and Steadicam, or swing-away rod mount for studio setups. Use the adjustable glide rail to mount a Cinetape or even a small light. Remote and dusty locations aren’t a problem as dust and dirt can be easily removed without special tools.
