Chimera 1245 overview

  • 1Description

The Large Shallow Super Pro Plus is designed for use with a strobe in small working spaces. With fabric not intended for the heat of a continuous light, the Large Super Pro Plus with silver interior is ideal for work where maximum softening of flash is desired. The light quality from this softbox will be slightly more contrasty than that produced by a Super Pro Plus with white interior.

The "Plus" designation of this softbox means the front face of the softbox is removable. Chimera makes different strengths of diffusion material for front face applications. The softbox comes with a one stop diffuser, but a 1/2 or 1/4 grid cloth can be purchased separately. These would allow more light transmission and help to make the light more specular, or "less soft."

Ideal for full length portraits of 2 or 3 adults.
Recessed front controls light spill and allows attachment of an optional fabric grid.
Shallow box design makes working in small areas easier.
The poles are sectional, and collapse for easy storage.
For use with a strobe head that has a protruding flashtube. It is not recomended for use with heads having built-in reflectors such as the Dyna-Lite 2040 lamphead or Novatron lampheads.
The shallow depth of this softbox would not allow the light to spread out adaquately within the box. Exposure would not be even across the entire front face of the softbox.

    Chimera 1245 reviews

    Shallow Super Pro Plus Softbox, Silver - Large is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portrait shooters dream tool The key to exceptionally soft and flattering light in portraiture is a large light source. This softbox is the right tool for the job. The most important feature for me is the shallow design - less than 24 inches deep. I've used smaller softboxes that were more cumbersome due to depth. Silver interior reflects light more efficiently than white which helps ensure an even spread cross the front and a boost to a moderately powered strobe (I suggest you use the secondary, interior baffle as well for even lighting). Compared this to a Larson 4x6 which was nearly twice the price and an inch deeper. Chimera is simply a better value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Babak Uses This ! Great light for large sets / darker walled rooms or just a soft light. You need room to use this box but it shallow depth makes it a lot easier than the regular sized ones to use. Other things good about this is the ease of set up / tear down. Very fast which in the long run saves you a lot of time and ease especially at a the end of a very long day of shooting. I leave the poles and the insides in when i tear it down. The poles do fold / snap in half for travel which is great - I shoot Fashion Hair beauty and this light comes in handy on set many times. babak

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chimera lies. This is NOT 72 high Great softbox, but it's NOT 72. The max height (edge-to-edge including flanged edges with velcro) is at most 67, and the front diffusion screen (the potential light area) is only 64. I'm using a Chimera speedring, and with a little sag in the middle, the actual height of the lighted surface is only 62nearly a foot shorter than I expected. Granted, the difference in softness between 72 & 62 is minimal, but I use large light sources for reflections as well as for diffused light, and there the difference can be substantial. Shame on Chimera for exaggerating the size. Why don't they just give the correct dimensions?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding softbox! Very even lighting from top to bottom. Best of all the light is super soft and the box doesn't eat up a lot of room in your shooting area. Very light weight as well. I had no problem using the box on a boom. Very pleased with the quality of the materials and the design. The aluminum rods are a plus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny Build quality is top notch with metal rods and not fiberglass of lesser brands. Light quality is outstanding as expected from Chimera light modifiers. Set up is quick with the Chimera quick release speed ring. While pricier than some other brands, I feel that it was worth it for what I'm sure will be many years of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put a ring on it. Great light modifier as expected from Chimera Lighting. Make sure you have a speedring that fits. The ends of the rods are bigger than any other modifier I have (including Chimera) and wouldn't fit my Interfit, Impact, or Hensel rings. I had to order a Chimera speedring.
