Product Highlights
  • 24x32" (60x80cm)

This Chimera Video Pro Plus Softbox is included with many Arri Softbank Kits. The Video Pro Plus is designed for use with a hot light but may be used with flash as well. With fabric intended for the heat of a continuous light, the Small Video Pro Plus with silver interior is ideal for work in small spaces when medium softening of the light is desired.

The 24x32" size is very portable and lightweight. It can be taken on location easily, and is ideal for small location ENG shoots.

Recessed front face helps to control light spill and facilitates the attachment of an optional fabric grid.
May be used with hot lights up to 1000 Watts. May be used with strobes of any Watt/Second output.

            Easy to set up and does a great job of directing and diffusing light. The video quality is much better, no more harsh glares.

              We use Chimera's for our K5600 Joker HMI lights. When we purchase any new light we buy a Chimera... it's like bread and butter... they just go together. It does exactly what you'd expect by softening the harsh lights. We also use them on our Moles-Richardson & Zylights. The are a good reliable product. I recommend this product.

                Short: Buy this softbox, it's worth the money.

                If you use continues light - this is the softbox for you. I run two of these with Arri 650s and they work like magic.

                You can use these with a flash as well, but if flash if your primary lighting - this is an overkill, as the primary advantage of this softbox is its ability to handle hot lights for extended periods of time.

                  if you need soft light you need a huge surface of light .with this chimera it is easey to fold and unfold this surface.with a grid you can even steer a little with this light.
                  i use it on an ianiro redhead ,but this chimera is made for an arri. so the steel poles dont fit 100% but who cares it works great!
