Comments about Chimera Super Pro Plus Strip Softbox, Silver - Small:

Especially with a grid, these units make it easy to control spill in a small studio when used as an edge light or a hair light for portraiture. They are also easy to set up and work around when used for table-top product shots of small items. I have two of these, and have on occasion even used them for copy stand photography, although continuous lights are better for that application, if it's routine work. I like that the poles don't get bent, and the box, when set up, is symmetrical, instead of misshapen, like some other units I've used. The amount of recess in the front diffuser is quite generous. The wide hook and loop material around the front makes it easy to attach both the front diffuser and an egg crate grid if desired. All-in-all, a joy to use.
