    Good investment: however I think my white interior softbox would have been sufficient. I like my silver umbrella better.

        Use this softbox with my Elinchrome Rangers (400ws) I have only done a couple tests shots with this so far but in my studio with both diffusing panels attached my little rangers do the trick ! Very consistent light! Will be using on location mostly !

          Gorgeous Light

            Comments about Chimera Super Pro Plus Softbox, Silver - Medium:

            The light coming out of this softbox is beautiful. It's versatile for all kinds of projects and assignments. The best part is that it is not specific to any light source. With the correct speed ring, you can use almost anything with it (except hot lights). It is very sturdy when set up. It is bigger than it looks, so be mindful when planning purchases for your studio space or location shoot. I can't recommend it enough, and my happy clients are all the justification I need for this purchase. Just buy one already.

              This softbox creates a beautiful light, is highly configurable, and is built to last.

              I use it for portraits in the studio and on location.

              With its wide range of accessories, it also offers great flexibility for handling many lighting tasks.

              Highly recommended.
