This is a 40° fabric grid for a 12 x 16" softbox that has a touch fastener-lined, recessed front. Use it to limit the spread and intensity of the light from a Chimera softbox.
Grids are essential accessories for any lighting system. A grid alters the shape and intensity of the light output from your softbox when it is mounted on a light head. Consider a grid as a painter would a brush, or a sculptor would a knife, or chisel.
Fabric grids are hand-stitched, and collapse easily for storage or transport. Use of a fabric grid will result in a narrower spread of light. The spread of light will be determined by the density of the mesh, and the distance of the subject from the light.
