  1. Brandon Habuda

    In my opinion the ultimate 4×5.65 3 stage mattebox. It can do anything you’ll ever need a mattebox to do, just don’t mistake it for an ultra low weight option that’s why I believe it’s best paired alongside the misfit atom for gimbals. Side flags, top flag, bottom flag, swing away, 15mm rod mounted, 19mm rod mounted, clip on, cinetape mounts, one to three stages, filter tray rotation it’s all possible. Built like a tank and has seen very little signs of wear after two years and dozens of shoots, this VIV will likely last the rest of my career.

    The VIV matte box is one solid piece of kit, I’ve used this from hot days right through to the blistering cold windy weather. As an indie cinematography on feature films, my team and I need to work quick against time and the elements, this has never let me down. The 4×5.65″ filters are a good size and work well with typical 114mm diameter primes as well as photography lenses for quick documentary filming. The flexibility of the flags is good when the sun is beating down, other than that I’m happy using just the matte box itself. I’ve been using this over two years, and there’s definitely signs of heavy usage, showing nothing but a solid matte box, no difference from day 1. Happy to put my trust in Bright Tangerine products on fast-paced film sets.

    The VIV matte box sits in my accessories/everyday case. It’s been around the world with me and has not failed. What’s really important for me, however, is the ability to use two filters or even three at a time. It works perfectly well for when I’m filming landscapes with a 5.65 grad filter without any problems. The build quality it topnotch. It’s lightweight and doesn’t add extra weight to the front of your lens. It’s a great piece of equipment that I can’t recommend enough.
