Bright Tangerine's Super Flexible & Lightweight Matte Box Might Be a Great Fit for Your Gimbals & Drones

If you're in need of a matte box or follow focus, you might want to check out what Bright Tangerine has got going on. They showcased a few different products at their NAB booth, including a super lightweight and pliable matte box called the Misfit Atom intended for gimbal and Steadicam use.

Misfit Atom

  • 3.5 oz without sunshade attached or 6.3 oz with sunshade attached
  • Unique 2-filter stacking system
  • tilting filter trays
  • anodized aluminium and elasto-polymer
  • rod-mount to 15mm LWS, 15mm, 19mm studio rods
  • $795

Revolvr & Revolvr Atom

These modular follow focuses aim to afford users the versatility and accuracy they're going to need to tackle whichever situation they find themselves in. However, probably the most notable feature is the Soft and Hard Stops. The mechanisms are completely independent of each other, so you can set your A and B positions wherever you like -- you can also drop plungers if you want to use hard stops. The Hard Stop feature is available on both the Revolvr and the Revolvr Atom.

The Revolvr starts at $2400, while the Revolvr Atom starts at $1600. Accessories and add-ons can be purchased à la carte. They will be available in 8 to 10 weeks, so be sure to check out Bright Tangerine for more information and updates.

compared to other brands in the market, these follow focus are priced about right and competitive for what they do. Looking at arri and o'connor follow focus system they cost way more than what you would get with BT. I know, it's hard to swallow sometime to pay that much money for just a follow focus, but when you have tried so many of the sub $1K follow focus units out there, you then understand why they cost that much. I was about to pull the trigger and get the O'Focus, but when I saw the Atom, I held back. I would pay way less and get much more for a system.
