    Chimera 1860 reviews

    Pancake Lantern with Skirt (Small, Full Diffusion) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Controls light spill. I love this product. I use it with a boom stand and the Chimera Triolet mogul lamp. With the skirt I can control light and add more contrast to my scene. I learned how to assemble it with the triolet by watching Shane Hurlbut's Chimera Pancake Lantern video on his blog. I'm going for the medium size next. Great gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my arsenal I have used this on several small sets and have found it to be a great tool. I have put 213 globes into it and was impressed by it's output. Like all the pancakes it has the skirt and is very adjustable. The only downside is it is a bit tough to put together the first time.
