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

        By masking the front with black material will create a narrow and long slit that gives a long and pleasing reflection on the glassware on the table, to cite one example. Used as a hair light on up to three people will give a very good quality light for the hair/cap/hat/turban, etc. The use of the inner diffuser is required for the most even light. Since the front is recessed, the spill on the background is not as great and the use of the optional grid may not be necessary if the background is some distance behind. All in all, the materials and the construction methodology are both of high standards. The weight of the optional and required speeding should be taken into consideration when the light is mounted on a boom arm. The Chimera quick release speeding is well constructed, but heavier than the non-quick release version. I have used the 20+ year old Plume aluminum speeding with this Chimera strip box with success.

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

          I love these soft boxes so much I bought two. Great for so many different lighting needs(hair light, rim light, selective area lighting, etc.)

          The silver interior gives the light a snappier quality than I get with white interiors.

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

            This is a wonderfull lightbox, the light is soft and creates a very nice effect on studio; but in order to use it with shoe mount Flashes you have to buy a special Speedring, I bought the composite Speed ring, but after 5 months of use the speed ring fracture right in the middle, Chimera told me I must use the adjustable Versi Bracket speed ring 2800OP on this strip lightbank. I strongly recommend this softbox, but if you are lighting with "Shoe Mount Flashes" be careful and buy the right Speed ring.

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

              In Studio or location all the Chimera boxes grids stretchers rings are all balanced to work together. The combinations of use are endless. The color balance is perfect from box to box. They are not the only Soft Box solution just the best. If every day your clients demand excellence I have been using Chimera over 30 years.
