Bright Tangerine Blacklight Matte Box Core

Bright Tangerine Blacklight Matte Box Overview
This is the core setup of the Bright Tangerine Blacklight Matte Box, comprised of an aluminum frame, carbon fiber shade, and 162mm lens clamp attachment.
The Blacklight is a 6.6 x 6.6" clamp-on matte box designed for large zoom and ultra wide lenses. It has a 162mm diameter that can cover lenses as wide as a Zeiss 8R mm rectilinear and RED Pro Zooms at 5K. This max diameter can be downsized via a variety of Bright Tangerine reduction rings.
Blacklight features a Bright Tangerine patented 2-stage to 3-stage adjustability system, which consists of three filter stages, one of them hidden. At the turn of a few screws, you can slide open a section in the rear and reveal the third stage. All the stages accept 6.6 x 6.6" and 4 x 5.65" filter trays.
Blacklight also supports an optional rod-mount swing-away bracket and arm assembly for more efficient lens swaps. This bracket is used simultaneously with a clamp lens attachment.
