Bright Tangerine has announced the Misfit Kick Mk II multi-configurable matte box system. This is an upgraded version of the Misfit Kick matte box, and it features an improved tool-less transition from 2- to 3-stage filter applications and a redesigned spring system in the core unit.
It has been more than three years since Bright Tangerine unveiled the original MisFit Kick matte box.
I reviewed the Bright Tangerine MisFit Kick back in early 2020.
The Misfit Kick Mk II uses a core unit, just like the previous Misfit Kick, that can be configured as a clip-on, rod-mounted, or swing-away matte box, depending on your requirements.
You can fit up to three 4 x 4″ or 4 x 5.65″ filter trays or the ONE tray without extra hardware or tools. A redesigned spring system creates a positive locking position for the trays to ensure your filters are loaded safely. The filter trays included with the Mk II drop are backward compatible with the previous model.
When you require additional filtration, add the Rubber Donut or Black Hole to accommodate a 138mm round filter. This is great for adding a diopter or circular polarizer, which can be easily rotated to achieve your desired angle.
New Quick Release Top Flag with Torsion Plate
There is now a distinct difference if you look closely at the new mounting mechanism for the top flag compared to how it previously was. It can now be installed in a matter of seconds by simply aligning the notches and tightening the two large thumbscrews.
Another new enhancement is the introduction of the Torsion Plate on the flags. This addition spans the entire length of the flag, effectively absorbing and dampening vibrations that could potentially impact the setup.
The Misfit Kick Mk II is available in various kit configurations with a variety of 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 allow you to use 138mm round filters.
Users have the flexibility to customize the Misfit Kick Mk II according to their preferences, whether they opt for a compact handheld setup or expand it with swing-away and studio support options.
Accessories that are compatible with the new Mk II include a Carbon Fiber Bottom Flag and optional Frame-Safe Clamp Adapters.
