The Medium Video Pro Plus is designed for use with a hotlight but may also be used with flash. With fabric intended for the heat of a continuous light, the 36x48 inch Video Pro Plus with silver interior is ideal for work where maximum softening of the light is desired.

The "Plus" designation of this softbox means the front face of the softbox is removable. Chimera makes different strengths of diffusion material for front face applications. This softbox comes with 3 diffuser fronts. These will allow more light transmission and help to make the light more specular, or "less soft."

This softbox also has a built in "lip" around the edges to help control light spill. This lip also facilitates the attachment of optional honeycomb grids, fabric grids, and louvers.

Note! NOTE: Speed Ring is required and not included

Ideal for full-length portraits of 1 or 2 children.
Recessed front helps to control light spill and facilitates the attachment of an optional fabric grid.
This softbox utilizes a split-pole design for ease of storage and transport.
May be used with hot lights up to 1200 Watts
Can be used with strobes of any w/s rating.

                Comments about Chimera Video Pro Plus Softbox - Medium 36x48" (90 x 120 cm):

                I purchased 2 of these Medium Video Pro Plus Chimeras to add to our rental inventory at AMP Equipment. One was brand new, and the other was "Used" but was given a 9 Star rating. Unfortunately, upon receiving the "Used" Chimera, I immediately noticed that it was missing 2 of the 4 diffusion panels that should be included with a "Video Pro Plus" Chimera. I called B&H immediately to inform them of the shortage. Not only were they unable to provide the missing diffusion panels, the only option they would offer was for me to send the Chimera back for a refund. Then I was told I would have to purchase a new one. Unfortunately, this didn't time out with the scheduled rental that week, for which we had ordered the Chimeras. I had to outsource diffusion panels from another source, and now that the job is over, I'm STILL short 2 diffusion panels which I will probably have to purchase elsewhere.

                    Comments about Chimera Video Pro Plus Softbox - Medium 36x48" (90 x 120 cm):

                    I've been using Chimera softboxes for decades for both pro photo and cinematography. I like the versatility of using one softbox for both hot and strobe lights, so I recommend the Video Pro Plus versions which are built to take the heat. They are very portable and mount quickly on dedicated speed rings. The recessed, removable front diffusion material (which is the "Plus" part) along with the included interior baffle increases its versatility. Since it's recessed, I can control the spill on the background and can easily attach black foil as an additional flag.

                    Nothing in the Chimera line is inexpensive, but everything is exceptionally well made and durable, so it's money well spent if you want it to last for decades like mine have.
