Chimera Super Pro X Plus Small Reviews

Great quality as expected

By Daphne

No light leaks, good quality and thick material. One small thought is that the inner baffle sits further along the softbox than expected ( i.e. it seems quite close to the outer baffle). Wish the accompanying grid wasn't so expensive - costs almost as much as this lightbank.

Very nice for smaller and dramatic light

Got the grid for it. Nice when there isn't much room or want to light smaller areas of the subject.

Perfect

An industry standard. A must have item. I have had mine for 25years, got this one for my asst as an xmas bonus. My old one has lasted without fail, why buy anything else?

A good value as always.....

I bought this to use for head shots and clam shell lighting. While it seems popular to use a small strip bank as the lower light for this lighting set up,....I much prefer the smaller, shorter small box and this one does a incredible job of knocking down the shadows, giving an extra measure of control by not totally obliterating the shadows. And as always....Chimera makes a great product that lasts for many, many years. Highly recommended!!!

Quality box.

This much lighter and easier to use strip box. The guide inside for the rods are really deep so it make impossible for the rods to get out. material snuggle around the light perfectly. Great quality very robust. :)

Delivers what it promises..
