The Chimera Large Shallow Video Plus Softbox is designed for use with a broad light with a wide throw such as a Tota light. With fabric rated for the heat of a continuous light up to 1200 Watts, the Large Shallow Plus for Video applications is ideal for work in cramped interiors where medium softening of a broad light is desired.
The "Plus" designation of this softbox means the front face of the softbox is removable. This softbox comes with a 3 diffusers. The 1/2 and 1/4 diffusers allow more light transmission and help to make the light more specular, or "less soft."
This softbox is made for lights with a very wide throw. The shallow depth of this softbox will not allow the light from a spotlight to spread out adaquately within the box. Exposure would not be as even across the entire front face of the softbox.
This size is perfect for full-length portraits of groups of 3 - 4 people, or large objects.
Recessed front helps to control light spill and facilitates the attachment of an optional honeycomb or fabric grid, or louvers.
Equates to more headroom if the box is used overhead, or easier manuvering in cramped interior shoots.
If used with strobe heads, the head must have a protruding flashtube, which will provide adaquate mixing of light inside the softbox.
Required Speed (mounting) Rings are available separately for many manufacturers' strobes.
