question

Does the bag provided in this kit hold the chimera lantern and the boom stand?
Asked by: Steven
The bag holds the complete kit. Note it is best not to put the sandbag in the case. It could damage the stand or the lantern as it moves around.

Can this be powered by the Interfit Nomad ...

Can this be powered by the Interfit Nomad Portable Battery Pack - BH #INNOM100 ?
Asked by: Mitchell
The Nomad is only capable of 400w sustained. You would not be able to use the 500w bulbs the Chimera is capable of.

question

I need a lighting solution like this to be used outside...problem is, we do not have a source of power in the woods. I don't want to carry a generator to where we are going. is there a viable power solution, like a v mount battery that this or a similar unit can utilize? Thank you
Asked by: Trevor
An option to consider is the Godox LP800X Power Inverter B&H # GOLP800X, which can power this light on location.
