Bright Tangerine introduces the Misfit Kick II, enhanced for an exceptional user experience.

Friday, September 1, 2023 Bright Tangerine is excited to announce the launch of their new product, the Misfit Kick Mk II. This matte box is an innovative advancement from the original Misfit Kick, and it will make filmmaking easier than ever.

Its lightweight design and versatile features enable cinematographers to work with confidence, delivering results faster than ever before. The new updated version of the matte box also comes with several improvements providing users with more options for creating unique images.

Users will immediately notice a distinct difference in the new mounting mechanism for the top flag, which allows for quick and effortless installation in a matter of seconds. By simply aligning the notches and tightening the two large thumbscrews, users can securely fasten the flag.

Another notable enhancement is the introduction of the Torsion Plate on the flags. This revolutionary addition spans the entire length of the flag, effectively absorbing and dampening vibrations that could potentially impact the setup.

When used handheld, filmmakers will experience reduced fatigue and, when mounted on a vehicle, they will enjoy sharper and clearer images.

Overall, these advancements not only ensure convenience and ease of use, but also contribute to a more refined and professional filmmaking experience.
