          Comments about Chimera Double Axis Stand Adapter:

          The Chimera Double Axis Stand Adapter is an extremely well built and useful tool in your lighting kit. I have two of these as well as two single axis versions with me when I do location lighting. Although heavier and larger than the plastic adapters widely used today, these adapters are made to be around and functioning decades after I am gone.

          I have no fear attaching large monolights or expensive strobe units with Chimera Adapters. This double axis version can even be set up to operate without a stand, easily balancing out my Quantum T5d-R units when I place them on tables, book cases or on the floor as a quick backlight.

                Comments about Chimera Double Axis Stand Adapter:

                I don't know how many stand adapters I have, probably enough but when I saw this, I thought well that could make things easier so I didn't really need it but ordered anyway. Now that I have it, I need more! The best adapter I have ever worked with.

                Comments about Chimera Double Axis Stand Adapter:

                ALL stand adapters should be made like this! Virtually any angle is achievable with little effort, and not much bigger than standard adapters. I don't leave home without at least two of these.

                  Very well made product by Chimera. Heavy duty. Even while being tilted, rotated and spin it is capable to sustain quite heavy load.

                  Great Adaptor

                  Pros

                  • Folds flat
                  • Light Weight
                  • Strong

                    Best Uses

                      Comments about Chimera Double Axis Stand Adapter:

                      I use this adaptor with Novatron lights in rectangular Photoflex Softboxes with Photoflex speedrings. The speedring and its adaptor do not allow rotation of the softbox. The Chimera double axis adaptor gives me back that rotation that I want when using rectangular or strip softboxes. The adaptor is strong, light weight, and looks attractive. I also like that it folds down flat so that takes minimal space in my bag when I travel the lights.
