Chimera 1854 overview

  • 1Description

Chimera has assembled this Panel Lantern Studio Kit for image-makers who have specific requirements for overhead lighting. The kit includes a PL100 LED Light Engine with controller and power supply, a 24 x 24" Fabric Lantern, head cable, and a kit bag. Also included are a Skirt Kit, a Single Axis Stand Adapter, and a 72" boom with a sliding counterweight system.

  • Panel Lantern Powered by LiteGear 24 x 24" Lighting Kit

    The Panel Lantern Powered by LiteGear 24 x 24" Lighting Kit from Chimera is a versatile soft light system with multiple uses and mounting options. At the heart of the kit is the PL100 light engine by LiteGear. This LED light array comes with a controller that allows you to adjust the color temperature from 2600 to 6000K as well as the light intensity from 0-100%. A multi-voltage power supply allows you to use the light anywhere in the world.

    The PL100 mounts to the kit's 24 x 24" aluminum frame that can be supported by the included grip head. Although you can use the system as it is at this point, there's another option. A 24 x 24" lantern softbox, made of a gridless fabric that works well with LEDs, attaches to the frame creating a light source that's suitable for fill light or overhead lighting setups that simulate the illumination you might find in a restaurant or club. A 12' head cable is included and the entire kit fits in the provided carry bag.

    UPC: 845077018325
  • 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.
