Chimera Speed Ring for Lowel Omni Light Reviews

Excellent Design & Craftsmanship

I bought this speed ring for my Westcott softbox after returning the Westcott spped ring which wa s cubsersome to install and you need a philips screwdriver. The GREAT thing about this Chimera speed ring is that two of the four brackets loosen and tighten via the brass thumbscrews. When I'm out in-the-field I don't wanna have to fuss (at least as much as possible) with (philips scredriver) tools when setting up and breaking down equipment. The other absolute briliant design is that the outer ring turns independently from the inner section. So with just a turn of the softbox, I can go from portrait to landscape with my light. (A lot of speed rings don't do this, at least the ones for the Lowel Omni light). The only slight downside (in my case) is that the Lowel Onmi light is supporting the weight of itself, the speed ring, the softbox and the egg crate (because there's no bracket w/spigot which in some cases would normally carry the weight instead of the light fixture itself). So, ironically, after I attached the super lightt egg crate the Lowel Omni light sagged. So I broke out 11mm and 13mm wrenches and tightened the nuts on the Lowel Omni and that did the trick to hold everything in place. Overall, I'm very happy with this product.
