The Misfit Atom is a feather light matte box. Designed for gimbal and steadicam use. However, the move you use it the more addictive it is as your go to matte box due to its ease and how light weight it is.
What makes this mate box so great is that you can remove the sun shade which helps remove any of that sail affect when shooting on gimbals or steadicam out of cars or other moving vehicles.
It can take two filters.
- 98g without shade
- 195g with shade
Its safer, quicker and you no longer have to tape your filters to your lens or forfeit by using a heavier mate box such as the normal Misfit matte box.
To get a bit of insight into the Misfit Atom please read the hands on article by cinematographer Phil Moreton. He talks about his experience when using it with gimbals. Atom & the Gimbal.
