      Comments about Chimera Screen - Color Correction - 1/2 Blue:

      I used this to change my tungsten Arri lights using a soft box to a cooler blue like. Does the job but for the amount that I paid and the lack of description, I thought this screen was dyed or something. But it is just a cloth screen with a blue gel. For storage, I Roll it up and put it away from my kit because I fear if I crush it, it will break the gel that is attached. It works fine. the light is a cool blue/white light buut like I said, I wish it was more flexible as a cloth not a gel...

          Comments about Chimera Screen - Color Correction - 1/2 Blue:

          Well made like all of Chimera's gear but it does cut the amount of light quite a bit. Would probably be better if it was a half grid & half blue instead of full grid.

          Must have for well-rounded lighting kit

          • Good Color Value

          Cons

          • Needs 2 b rolled 2 store
          • Not super portable

          Best Uses

          • Mixed lighting

          Comments about Chimera Screen - Color Correction - 1/2 Blue:

          This is a must have addition for any Chimera soft-bank lighting kit. The half-blue is perfect for mixed lighting situations that you often encounter when shooting interviews in office's and homes. With this I'm able to always get a good exposure with a good color balance.

          Only con- the product is little more than a regular 1/2 blue gel sheet sewn to the back of a Chimera diffuser panel so it needs to be rolled in order to stay in good condition. Crumpling it into an already overstuffed lighting kit will likely crease it dramatically and diminish its usability. Bottom line is that's is not as portable as I'd like.
