Bright Tangerine has announced the Misfit Kick Mk II multi-configurable matte box system. An upgraded version of the Misfit Kick matte box, the Mk II features improved tool-less transition from 2- to 3-stage filter applications and a redesigned spring system in the core unit.
Like its predecessor, the Misfit Kick Mk II starts with a core unit that can be configured as a clip-on, rod-mounted, or swing-away matte box, depending on the needs of your rig. Fit up to three 4 x 4" or 4 x 5.65" filter trays or the ONE tray without extra hardware or tools, thanks to the patented reveal stage design. A redesigned spring system creates a positive locking position for the trays with tactile feedback to ensure your filters are loaded safely. The filter trays included with the Mk II drop are backward compatible with the previous model.
Besides the core unit, the Mk II is available in various kit configurations with versatile accessories. The Base Kit includes the core unit and two 4 x 5.65"/4 x 4" filter trays. The 2-Stage Kit adds a Carbon Fiber Top Flag for improved control over sun flares, while the 3-Stage Kit adds a third filter tray. The 2-Stage ONE Tray Matte Box Kit and 3-Stage ONE Tray Matte Box Kit include the same accessories as the aforementioned kits, along with a ONE Tray, which expands filter compatibility to 138mm round filters.
Other accessories compatible with the new Mk II include a Carbon Fiber Bottom Flag for increased flare and ghosting control, and optional Frame-Safe Clamp Adapters, which make the Mk II compatible with virtually any lens thanks to their extra-wide field of view for large format sensors.
