      Comments about ikan CH1457 Chimera for ID 500:

      I ordered the IKAN 2513 LED Kit along with 3 Chimeras for the 3 lights at the same time. The location of the holes in Chimera "boxes"--which mount around the barn doors of the two IL500 LEDs--do not line up well with the clips found on the barn doors of the IL500 LEDs. This is the case for both lights and chimeras. The "fit" is extremely tight. I am not sure if one company or the other changed its manufacturing specs, but this should be resolved. I contacted Chimera about it because their product is considered an accessory to the IKAN LEDs. They thanked me, but I am not sure what will come of it. The product has one-year warranty and I told them it might be coming back before then.

          Just got back from a trip using the ID 500 and the Chimera. Construction is solid and once in your hand you can tell it will be part of your bag for a good long while! Excellent light diffusion

            I was impressed with the chimera kit. There are 3 different options for dimming all with easy velcro attachments. Everything comes in a well constructed bag that has 2 compartments. One for the dimmers, and one for the main assembly. Everything lays flat too which I appreciate.

            A very well engineered and versatile light box. I've come to expect nothing less from Chimera having used their products for over 15 years.

              I now us this for all daylight shots. I sue one of the covers for the Key light and one for the full. No more playing with clips. Expensive but does the job.
