Clash 138

The Clash 138 is the latest revolution in matte boxes from Bright Tangerine, building upon the foundation set by our lightest matte box ever the Misfit Atom, we added a third filter stage to accommodate 138mm round filters like polarisers and diopters.

No more excuses to leave without the polariser

Clear Skies Ahead

Rotate your polarisers up to 120-degrees without undoing any screws, removing the filter or other complex manoeuvers. Just grab the lever and rotate, that’s it. Simple.

If you’re shooting anamorphic, the Clash 138 even supports +1 and +2 diopters using the Rota Ring. Just mount the filters in the Rota Ring and off you go.

Additional Rota Rings can also be purchased separately so you can have a range of filters ready to load in and start shooting.

Without PolariserWith Polariser

I have been waiting for a matte box like this for a long time. I needed a clamp-on matte box that could hold 138mm filters as close to the front of the lens as possible. I have many older anamorphic lenses with large front diameters (134mm and larger) and they require the regular use of 138mm round diopters. The Clash holds the diopters extremely close to the front element of the lens. This is important because if the diopter is held too far from the front of the lens, there is a much greater chance of vignette caused by seeing the edge of the diopter. The Clash is a game changer when using large-diameter anamorphic lenses. I love that I can place a 138mm diopter or pola, as well as two 4×5.65 filters in a very compact, light-weight, clamp-on style matte box.

The Clash 138 makes it so much easier to be efficient on set with several lens sets. Being able to quickly toss in a diopter or polariser and still be pretty light, makes all the difference in the world. Any amount of weight savings is always appreciated and Bright Tangerine gets it. This was exactly what I needed for my Atlas Anamorphic set.

Domenic Barbero, Northwest Camera Co

Shooting with lightweight, compact products is essential for my work and the Clash 138 provides all of the features I need in a small package. My primary work is with camera vehicles so having a matte box without a fixed sun hood greatly reduces wind drag at high speeds and the addition of a circular polarizer to dial down window reflections really makes this product a winner. For action sports work I usually run a pre-built, compact setup so having a low profile matte box, such as the Clash, really minimizes space taken up in my bag and makes my day much easier. This is the matte box I needed years ago!
