    Chimera 2795 reviews

    Speed Ring for Canon and Nikon is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointed If this product were half the price it would be well worthit. I have owned this for about 3 weeks and have used it 5times so far. I use it with a photoflex large multi domewith an SB-800 mounted to a typical umbrella swivel. Thebracket bends very easily, and it will not screw downcompletely tight into the umbrella swivel. I wish it weremade of cast aluminum and not a poly-resin. I feel asthough it will not last very long.I would have been better off fabricating my own bracket tohold my SB-800 and mounting that to a speed ring. Next timeI will save my money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits the 580ex II or Does It? It did what it was supposed to, however If you use an off camera triggering system that attaches to the foot of the flash, it raises it up and it does not fit the opening well. Also if your using a pocketwizard, it will not fit at all because it hits the bar that comes down at an angle. Otherwise, if you don't mind figuring out a work around, it does what it is supposed to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Speed Ring keeps it all together I use the Chimera Speed ring along with a White, Extra Small Maxi Softbox,- by Chimera together they let me take studio quality lighting on my run and gun style of shooting. The ring is sturdy enough to support the softbox; and the camera mounting hardware ensures a tight lockup on my Cannon 580EX flash and EOS 5D. Just the perfect match for a very mobile photographer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turns your flash into a big, soft light! I purchased this for use with the Westcott 12x36 softbox for flash units. It works great with my Canon 580 EX II flash. Yhe neat thing about this set-up is that in situations where there is limited space for tripods, stands, etc., this flash/softbox combo can easily be hand held.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta have one with a soft box I use this with a Chimera off camera softbox and a Nikon SB-800. It's a space age plastic, seems flimsy, but will take years of abuse. It does a fine job of keeping the softbox and flash together and mounts easily to a light stand or boom. I've used the softbox/speed ring combo in the studio, at weddings and fashon shows, outdoors for portraits and cann't say enough good about them.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Idea, Bad Execution (for Canon) I bought this to use it with my Canon 580 EX II. The fit is perfect with the supplied shoe, but there is no reliable way to trigger the flash. The softbox blocks Canon sensor for wireless flash. Rotating the flash head causes the unit to sit too far back. My ETTL extension cord will not fit through the bracket slot, so I could not mount it that way, and my wireless remote shoe was too large. Clean sweep. Returning to B&H.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from One flash at rectangular softbox I bought it for medium-size stripbox, but it doesn't fit at all. Chimera speed ring designed only for rectangular type of sotbox. Also, design doesnt sturdy for take really large softbox (all construction bending), and i'm recommend to use hardened swivel mount. I use it with one by Photflex, and Impact mount should does this job too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than EZ Box This, together with a Chimera or other soft box is much better than the Lastolite EZ Box because this will pack much smaller. The EZ box packs into a large lump that's difficult to travel with.
