Chimera Super Pro Plus Strip Softbox, Silver - Medium

B&H # CHSPPSBMS Mfr # 1065
In Stock
Free Expedited Shipping
You Pay: $320.99

The Pro Plus Strip Softbox is designed for use with a strobe. With fabric not intended for the heat of a continuous light, the Plus Strip comes standard with a silver interior and a recessed, removable front face, which provides more control of light than a box with a flush front.

The "plus" designation means the front face may be removed. A 1/2 or 1/4 strength fabric could be used instead, for slightly more light transmission and less of a softening effect.

Suitable for full length set-ups with children, or when a soft edge, or hair-light is needed for a small group of people.
Required Speed (mounting) Rings are available separately for many manufacturers' strobes.
Size 14 x 56" (35 x 140 cm)
Shape Narrow Rectangle

          Comments about Chimera Super Pro Plus Strip Softbox, Silver - Medium:

          By masking the front with black material will create a narrow and long slit that gives a long and pleasing reflection on the glassware on the table, to cite one example. Used as a hair light on up to three people will give a very good quality light for the hair/cap/hat/turban, etc. The use of the inner diffuser is required for the most even light. Since the front is recessed, the spill on the background is not as great and the use of the optional grid may not be necessary if the background is some distance behind. All in all, the materials and the construction methodology are both of high standards. The weight of the optional and required speeding should be taken into consideration when the light is mounted on a boom arm. The Chimera quick release speeding is well constructed, but heavier than the non-quick release version. I have used the 20+ year old Plume aluminum speeding with this Chimera strip box with success.

            I love these soft boxes so much I bought two. Great for so many different lighting needs(hair light, rim light, selective area lighting, etc.)

            The silver interior gives the light a snappier quality than I get with white interiors.

              Comments about Chimera Super Pro Plus Strip Softbox, Silver - Medium:

              This is a wonderfull lightbox, the light is soft and creates a very nice effect on studio; but in order to use it with shoe mount Flashes you have to buy a special Speedring, I bought the composite Speed ring, but after 5 months of use the speed ring fracture right in the middle, Chimera told me I must use the adjustable Versi Bracket speed ring 2800OP on this strip lightbank. I strongly recommend this softbox, but if you are lighting with "Shoe Mount Flashes" be careful and buy the right Speed ring.

                In Studio or location all the Chimera boxes grids stretchers rings are all balanced to work together. The combinations of use are endless. The color balance is perfect from box to box. They are not the only Soft Box solution just the best. If every day your clients demand excellence I have been using Chimera over 30 years.
