Chimera Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox - Small Strip - 9x36" (20x90cm)

B&H # CHVPP1BSS Mfr # 8154
In Stock
Free Expedited Shipping
You Pay: $323.40

The Small Video Pro Plus 1 Strip Softbox is designed for use with an HMI, or hotlight up to 750 Watts, or strobes of any power. With fabric intended for the heat of a continuous light, the Video Plus 1 Strip has a silver interior and a long skinny profile.

The "Plus 1" designation means the front face can be removed. The softbox comes with a 1 diffuser. The optional 1/2 and 1/4 diffusers allow more light transmission and help to make the light more specular, or "less soft."

The recessed front face provides a narower spread of light than a flush mounted box. It also facilitates the suport for a fabric grid to further control the direction of your soft light.

The Small Video Strip Softbox is just the right size for product or still life aplications, especially useful with glassware or ceramics with a high reflective index. The strip bank will provide thinner, more atractive highlights, revealing more of the product.

                  Day after day I blast these babies with my lowel tota lights up to 800 watts. No sign of any wear yet. Although I did get one which needed to be returned due to a bad seam where the rod inserts. [...].Incidentally, the photoflex speed ring for lowel tota needs modification to insert the power cord. Fine if you have a workshop - useless otherwise.But this strip soft box is just great for a hair light, headshot or whatever!

                    Comments about Chimera Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox - Small Strip:

                    I use this light back in conjunction with some other Chimeras for Cinematography as well as Photography so I have speed rings for my Canon 580ex flash, studio flash and also for Arri cine lighting.

                    Chimeras give a wonderful soft light that wraps beautifully around your subject. They come with an internal diffuser that makes it possible to use this with something as small as a standard camera flash or as big as a 1K Arri so they are very adaptable.

                    The strip banks make it possible to have controlled amounts of soft light on your subject which means you can isolate them from your background really nicely. Really good for interview settings, portraits or fashion photography and super portable.

                    I have chimeras that are 6 - 8 years old used almost every day and still perfectly good so this product will last you for a good 10 years if you look after it.

                    Happy shooting!
