Bright Tangerine Releases Kasbah

The shoulder-support system was designed using Digital Light Synthesis, a process pioneered in Silicon Valley that uses digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics and programmable liquid resins.

Bright Tangerine has released the Kasbah Shoulder Support System

The Kasbah was designed with Digital Light Synthesis, a process pioneered by CarbonTM that uses digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics and programmable liquid resins to form a unique matrix structure with an infinite number of density zones.

Pressure mapping was utilized to individually tune each point alongside real-world tests with camera operators. The result is a shoulder pad that provides optimal cushioning and pressure relief; it wraps around the operator, molding to the shoulder for a universal fit. The open structure allows air to naturally flow through, evaporating sweat to keep the user cool. The pad can be cleaned with water and is UV-resistant. 

The pad can be configured in two ways. The included mounting adapter allows the pad to connect to the rear of the LeftField 15mm LWS baseplate. Using the riser allows for seamless transitions to tripods without using a VCT plate. Alternatively, the LeftField baseplate or any other baseplate with an Arri dovetail clamp can dock on top of the shoulder pad, making it compatible with third-party manufacturers. 

The baseplate can be positioned along the length of the shoulder pad to adjust for optimal balance. 

Attaching the rear 15mm bracket extends the mounting options even further, supporting battery plates and other accessories that also serve as counterbalance for larger camera builds.
