Lantern Softboxes are used by still photographers, filmmakers and videographers, for illuminating entire rooms with soft, even light. Choose a Chimera Lantern Softbox according to the size of the room, and your working light fixture.

This lantern softbox comes with a black skirt, which acts as a gobo, and provides more directional control of the light output from your fixture.

Required Speed (mounting) Rings are available separately for your light fixture.

Use this size for casting omni-directional lighting for a medium-sized conference room, or for adding accent lighting in a larger room.
Required Speed (mounting) Rings are available separately for many manufacturers' hot lights and strobes.
Bobinette scrims are available, to diminish the light output.

      Comments about Chimera Lantern Softbox with Skirt - 30":

      I use this product for lighting portraits and weddings. I use it to add soft, supplemental light to my photos and I love it. Easier to move around than an umbrella, and also can work outside - unlike umbrellas if there is any wind!
