Kees Van oostrum ASC discusses the use of diopters in modern cinematography
Some lenses are just not made to focus close.
Switching lenses, changes perspective and tells a different story.
Add a diopter, and remove the limits from your lens.

Build it your way
Just like all of our matte boxes, the Misfit Atom Pola+ has been designed to be used in a wide range of camera setups, from clip on to rod mounted with optional accessories.
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 is a piece of kit I have been waiting on for a long time. I primarily shoot cars and I ALWAYS have a polariser in front of the lens. With the addition of the Movi Pro to my kit, I needed something that allowed me to not only use a pola, but up to two ND’s as well.
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.
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 pola and still be pretty light, makes all the difference in the world. This was exactly what I needed for my Atlas Anamorphic set.
