      Comments about Chimera LED Lightbank:

      Loved using this Chimera on our new litepanels BUT the mount is kinda strange.... It is so large that it doesnt fit in the carrying case of the litepanels or any of our pelican cases.... makes it very difficult to bring on set protected.

      Comments about Chimera LED Lightbank:

      Agree with previous reviewers: The set up and take down of these soft boxes will add 20 minutes to your production. And the price seems to be hugely inflated - especially because they do not even come with a carrying case.

      That said, these devices do improve the quality of light coming from the LED Lite panels 1 x 1 - and once attached are secure and reliable.

        Comments about Chimera LED Lightbank:

        This creates very nice light when used with the 1x1 Litepanel but the rods are very difficult to mount to the Chimera frame and extremely difficult to disassemble. I've use Chimera products for many years and this does not come up to the standards I'm use to from them.

          Actually used on Socanland 12x12 Bicolor. Fit like a champ. Far more efficient than clipping diffusion to barn doors. Get it!

              Comments about Chimera LED Lightbank:

              I have lots of LED's which are great, for my video but a bit harsh. Finally decided to fit this to my LED spot (1x1 Litepanel).
              Its not just a "softbox" but a complete light transformation to a beautiful glow! That is also extremely aim-able. Four stars for the over priced-ed-ness (personal opinon as it is, by nature of the beast, FLIMSY, but certainly strong enough for the intened uses.)

              If you want beautiful light, not just "light" use this on your 1X1 LEDs.

                Its easy to put on and take off
                the diffusion works and gives a much nicer softer light.
