Product Highlights
  • For Flash Only

The Chimera Medium Super Pro Plus is designed for use with a strobe. With fabric not intended for the heat of a continuous light, the Medium Super Pro Plus with white interior is ideal for work where maximum softening of flash is desired. The light quality from this softbox will be softer than that produced by a Super Pro Plus with silver interior.

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. The softbox comes with a one stop diffuser, but a 1/2 or 1/4 grid cloth can be purchased separately. These would allow more light transmission and help to make the light more specular, or "less soft."

Ideal for very soft lighting of 3/4-length portraits of 1 or 2 adults.
Recessed front controls light spill and allows attachment of an optional fabric grid.
Required Speed (mounting) Rings are available separately for many manufacturers' strobes.

        Silver gets a little too punchy sometimes; I use this with my B1 500 and the light is incredibly soft.

        The included bag even fits the Chimera Super Pro Plus 24"x36" softbox and both speedrings.

              Just a great soft box that gives even consistent light every time. Chimera's are built to take a lot of setup and breakdown, and my older Chimera gear is still in great shape after years of not only hard use, but being thrown around with light stands in and out of my vehicles.

                  The quick release makes this easy to assemble and disassemble. The light is large by easy to manage on a regular light stand. Won't fit through most residential doorways while attached to the strobe, so it makes it a little inconvenient, but the big box spread is worth it. Very pleased.

                    I always use Chimera softboxes because of their durability and consistent color over time, they make great products and this most basic box is no exception. Only complaint is that when broken down it takes up even more room than the large Chimera box (which is 54"x72") since the interior poles do not fold as they do in the larger box. This gives it an extra long length when collapsed. It does come with its own carrying case but if you travel with a lot of softboxes it is an issue.

                      I use this softbox with my ProFoto lights and the Chimera brand speedring for location work. It's easy and fast to set-up/break down, and comes with a nice bag as well. Excellent quality of light!

                        Most of my photo sessions are outdoors. Because of this, it is essential that the softboxes are well made and sturdy or they will not last. Chimera is the best there is in my book.

                        “Buy right the first time”, I live by it. To say that I am obsessive while researching products would be the understatement of the century. During my research, I had the pleasure of visiting the Chimera plant and meeting several of the personnel. I was immediately impressed with the quality of the product and also the professionalism of the personnel.

                        If you’re in the market for a Softbox, buy Chimera. You will never regret it!

                          This is the perfect size for small studios and amateurs. It is very well made (has 2 diffusing surfaces in front)and is perfect for portraits or full length shots of models. Get it close to your subject for soft light-to-dark transitions. Folds up into its own space-saving carrying bag.
