        Comments about Chimera Lantern Softbox with Skirt - 20":

        I used the Lantern with a 5 bulb fluorescent fixture. It provided a great soft light that made the people look great. I didn't need the skirt, but it would come in handy to block the light to the lens if used near the subject in front of the camera. The skirt attaches with velcro.
        The only complaint I have is the supports aren't attached to the softbox along the sides, When I assemble it they don't always go into the corners. I have to adjust them. This is no big deal. The rods are very easy to attach to the mounting ring. I look forward to the other ways I can use this great item. The Lantern works with both flash and hot lights, plus fluorescent and LED lights and video lights.
