The Lantern and Standard Light Boom Kit from Chimera includes a Large Pancake Lantern, a Triolet Lamp Base, and a Standard Light Boom with counterweight bags.

The Lantern is a 48" square light source with a half dome profile that can be used overhead to light an entire room. The lantern also comes with a skirt that can be rolled down on any or all of the four sides for dramatic lighting effects. The Triolet is an ideal mate for the lantern. The mogul socket comes with an E26 Edison base adapter with a 1,000W rating attached to a quick release speed ring that takes minutes to mount to the lantern. Offering 360 degrees of unlimited light angle and directional control and a 6' reach, all of the boom's angle movements are controlled by a handle at the pivot point. It comes with two empty counterweight bags capable of holding up to 15 lb total of lead shot.

  • Standard Light Boom

    The Standard Light Boom from Chimera offers a quick and easy way to position a light, particularly overhead lights with softboxes. Operating like a small jib arm, the Light Boom provides 72" of reach and features a 360° rotating head extension for angle adjustment. A single handle on the head extension is used to control all movements. The Light Boom features a combo baby/junior pin receiver for mounting to stands and accepts light fixtures that mount on a 5/8" baby pin (hex-sided). For balancing your light, the pole features a sliding counterweight system, with two empty counterweight bags included, capable of holding of to 15 lb.

  • Pancake Lantern Softbox with Skirt - Large

    The Chimera Pancake Lantern Softbox is used by still photographers, filmmakers and videographers, for illuminating entire rooms with soft, even light. Choose a Chimera Lantern Softbox according to the size of the room, and your working light fixture.

    This is a Large 48" square, 19" deep Pancake Lantern, which takes up less space than a traditional Lantern Softbox. This Pancake Lantern includes a skirt, which limits the spread of the light output, and adds a dramtic effect between light and shadow.

    Required Speed (mounting) Rings are available separately for your light fixture.

    Use this size for casting omni-directional lighting for a large conference room, or small stage where setup space is limited.
    Required Speed (mounting) Rings are available separately for many manufacturers' hot lights and strobes.
    Single and double Bobinette scrims are available, to diminish the light output.
