Chimera 1530 overview

  • 1Description

The 36 x 48" medium Chimera Pro II Softbox for Flash is designed for use with a strobe. With fabric not intended for the heat of a continuous light, this softbox comes standard with a white interior and a flush front face. The flush-mounted front face provides a wider spread of light than a box with a recessed front. Its sewn-in front face allows it to be set up in less than 30 seconds. Because there is no built in recessed front face, ganging the boxes together without a large black space between the boxes is possible with any number of these boxes.

This size is right for full length shots of children or 3/4 length shots of adults.
Required speed (mounting) rings are available separately for many manufacturers' strobes.

    Chimera 1530 reviews

    Pro II Softbox for Flash (Medium, 36 x 48") is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and durable lightsource I use this box both in the studio and on location with a number of studio strobes and smaller battery powered flashes. A couple of brackets let me adapt it to accommodate my Nikon Speedlights, and for many applications this is plenty of light, even outdoors. The box is big enough to provide a flattering light for people, but compact enough to work in cramped environments. I keep one in my location kit (along with two other sizes of Chimeras) and since it's the size I most often pull out, bought this one just for use in my new studio.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price Creates great light, good for portraits or larger products. According to my meter, the light is more balanced across the whole front bank if you don't use the inner diffuser. Overall, good quality, better than most other softboxes on the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent... as expected It is expected to get the best out of a Chimera soft box, and that is what I got. It is not the first one I have, so, I know. This is an excellent product. Is a work horse, sturdy, you can trust the results. Just don't abuse it and it will give you years of good service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Medium? Heck This Is Big... Chimera call this their medium Pro Softbox but I consider 3ft X 4 ft to be pretty darn big. Great light (quality), very light (weight).
    Date published: 2011-08-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Softbox I replaced a Large softbox from Chimera with this one and it's perfect size for most projects. The Large was way too big.
    Date published: 2013-08-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chimera products are always top-notch Excellent quality of light for portraits both in the studio and on location. Excellent highlight to shadow transitions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Soft Box Mostly used for pet portraits, some people. Easy to set-up and break down.
