    Bright Tangerine has been quite busy and responsive to the commentary and requirements of the community. Many members here and, in the at large film community, have embraced the quality and service that they have offered.

    Well, they have listened once again and Strummer has evolved…Strummer II

    The first, and always welcome alteration is decreased weight.
    Lighter is Better.

    Switching between 6” and 5.65” is more facile.
    Faster is Better.

    Field of view is now wider than an Arri MB14 6” mattebox, whilst remaining just as compact as the original strummer.
    Wider Field of View is Better.

    The core has been improved for additional strength.
    Stronger is Better.

    There are also tilting, anti reflecting module and dual, bladed side wings.
    Accessories are Better.

    The new Strummer II will be more affordable.
    More affordable is Best…

    Due - end of February, 2014. More to follow.

    Such as Follow Focus, which is also on the way...

    Thank you very much

    Fury

    Nick do you work for Bright Tangerine?

    I purchased the VIV 5 and I love it, fantastic matte box.
    I paid for and still have yet to see my hard mattes its been 4 months. I feel thats a little long without having them in by now.

    Very disappointed in this experience.

    Care to shed some light on whats up with that, im told the hardmattes are not available.

    EDIT:
    BT has reached out to me and is totally fixing the situation.
    Im very pleased with this company and once they release that Strummer V2.0 im gonna try to jump on it.


    Thanks

    Hi Big Lu,

    I do not/never have worked for Bright Tangerine, love their gear though.

    I don't own a VIV5, but was previously thinking of getting one. Apart from the hard mattes (I'll inquire as well), how has it been working for you?

    Thank you very much

    You can order them directly through the website: http://www.brighttangerine.com/produ...-mm/111/2/5/46

    I have a set of them if you need to borrow them for a shoot. Just let me know.

    Matt, I'm curious what makes you think that Camadeus is a " bit of a scam"? I have a VIV (which I love) and have purchased some accessories directly from the Bright Tangerine website, without any issues. Over the holidays, I decided to order a Swing-away kit, emailed Rob at BT with some questions (which he was kind enough to answer), and then he steered me to Camadeus. I purchased the kit from them and it's on the way to me as we speak, no issues so far.

    I may have to drop Illya at HRC a line, since I know they stock BT stuff.

    Not sure how things have resolved but at the start of BT, they were charging above MSRP for BT products. That was before the BT online store and public price list. I'm sure it's fine now, but I'd prefer to order direct if possible.

    4 months without a response on a paid order isn't acceptable...
