Chimera Mini Lightbank Reviews

Does what it should

I bought this to use for portraits outdoors where a softer-than-bare-flash fill was required. I pair this with either a shoemount flash or Lumedyne strobe. Works as expected with both.

I already have the maxi which I use as a key light and have added this as a fill light. I run Nikon SSB-800 speedlights in both and use the creative lighting system in the speedlights and D200s. Works like a charm for portrature and smaller wedding groups.

Too difficult to disassemble for field use.

I got tired of my 48 umbrellas blowing over in the wind, even with a 12 lb. weighted bag on the bottom of my light stand. No such issues with this softbox. It puts out really good light quality. I will be using this little gem a lot from now on!
