In a recent article, we delved into the matte boxes of one of our favourite companies – Bright Tangerine. These matte boxes may be the signature product that Bright Tangerine is most well known for, but in the last few months we’ve seen a few new releases that have expanded the company’s offering and potentially revolutionised the marketplace.
In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at two of these products: the Revolvr follow focus and Titan arm.
The Revolvr boasts a few unique features based on what DOPs find most useful.
The Revolvr follow focus
Follow focus has always been a key part of a professional DOP’s workflow, but the technology hasn’t advanced a huge amount in the last few decades. This is starting to change, and Bright Tangerine’s long awaited Revolvr and the lightweight Revolvr ATOM are at the forefront of a new movement within the industry.
As you’d expect based on the brand’s previous offerings, the Revolvr starts with the key characteristics that make a follow focus useful. The most important of these are accuracy and ease of control. Both are improved by the Revolvr’s unique soft end stop system, which allows cinematographers to identify and rack to an exact point with complete control.
As with other Bright Tangerine products, the Revolvr also boasts a few unique features based on what DOPs find most useful. One standout example is the ability to use the follow focus even when wearing heavy gloves in cold conditions. This addition might not seem like a big deal to everyone, but anybody working in low temperatures will be glad to have it!

The Titan arm
Another new product from Bright Tangerine that’s a bit more outside the box is the Titan. An articulated arm with a difference, the Titan’s unique design allows it to remain rigid while any of the three joints are adjusted.
This allows for easy changes on the fly, and the arm’s robust construction means you never have to worry about your monitor drooping or becoming loose during a shoot. In fact, the weight-bearing capacity of the Titan is a whopping eight kilograms – so even heavy accessories will be well supported.
