      Silver gets a little too punchy sometimes; I use this with my B1 500 and the light is incredibly soft.

      The included bag even fits the Chimera Super Pro Plus 24"x36" softbox and both speedrings.

            Just a great soft box that gives even consistent light every time. Chimera's are built to take a lot of setup and breakdown, and my older Chimera gear is still in great shape after years of not only hard use, but being thrown around with light stands in and out of my vehicles.

                The quick release makes this easy to assemble and disassemble. The light is large by easy to manage on a regular light stand. Won't fit through most residential doorways while attached to the strobe, so it makes it a little inconvenient, but the big box spread is worth it. Very pleased.

                  Using this with my Elinchrom 600RX indoors and it's great. it's easy to assemble. I do have to buy the elinchrom speedring for it to attach to the 600rx

                  I always use Chimera softboxes because of their durability and consistent color over time, they make great products and this most basic box is no exception. Only complaint is that when broken down it takes up even more room than the large Chimera box (which is 54"x72") since the interior poles do not fold as they do in the larger box. This gives it an extra long length when collapsed. It does come with its own carrying case but if you travel with a lot of softboxes it is an issue.

                    I use this softbox with my ProFoto lights and the Chimera brand speedring for location work. It's easy and fast to set-up/break down, and comes with a nice bag as well. Excellent quality of light!

                      Most of my photo sessions are outdoors. Because of this, it is essential that the softboxes are well made and sturdy or they will not last. Chimera is the best there is in my book.

                      “Buy right the first time”, I live by it. To say that I am obsessive while researching products would be the understatement of the century. During my research, I had the pleasure of visiting the Chimera plant and meeting several of the personnel. I was immediately impressed with the quality of the product and also the professionalism of the personnel.

                      If you’re in the market for a Softbox, buy Chimera. You will never regret it!

                        This is the perfect size for small studios and amateurs. It is very well made (has 2 diffusing surfaces in front)and is perfect for portraits or full length shots of models. Get it close to your subject for soft light-to-dark transitions. Folds up into its own space-saving carrying bag.
