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.

Some lenses are just not made to focus close.

Switching lenses, changes perspective and tells a different story.

The Verdict

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.

Mark LaFleur, Old Fast Glass
*Misfit Atom Pola+ was previously named Clash 138

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.

DC Chavez
*Misfit Atom Pola+ was previously named Clash 138

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.

Jan Schuster, Mile End Media
*Misfit Atom Pola+ was previously named Clash 138

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.
