Do it on set with the
Misfit Atom Pola+

There’s no post processing available that can replicate the true interaction of the environment, optics & lights.

Filters are a creative choice. 

With the Misfit Atom Pola+, you can use three stages of filtration. Two 4×5.65″ and a rotatable 138mm round, for a rota pola or diopter stage.
