Chimera 8124 overview

  • 1Description

The small Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox by Chimera is designed for use with a hot light but may be used with flash as well. With fabric intended for the heat of a continuous light, the Small Video Pro Plus 1 with silver interior is ideal for work in small spaces when medium softening of the light is desired.

The 24 x 32 inch size is very portable, lightweight, and can be taken on location easily. The "Plus 1" designation of this softbox means the front face of the softbox is removable. Chimera makes different strengths of diffusion material for front face applications. This softbox comes with 1 "Full" diffuser. Optional 1/2 and 1/4 grid cloths allow for more light transmission and also, less softening of the light.

The Small size is in the middle of the extensive lineup of Chimera softboxes.
Recessed front face helps control light spill and facilitates the attachment of an optional fabric grid.
May be used with hot lights up to 1000 watts.
May be used with strobes of any w/s rating.
Required speed (mounting) rings are available separately for many manufacturers' strobes.

    Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox (Small) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Arri's new 750 3-light Kit I bought this to keep in my new Arri 750 Plus 3 Light Kit. This makes for an all-purpose, Swiss army kit that is smaller and more mobile than the larger 4-5 light softbank cases. NOTE: The 750s have built-in mounts so no speed rings necessary!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let There Be Soft Light I use the Small Chimera for shooting one or two person interviews on a 1000 watt ARRILITE (as a key lamp) and an X-Small Chimera on a ARRI Plus 650 watt Fresnel (as a side fill). I have several homemade 2000 watt dimmers so I can sculpt the light to my taste. Chimeras work great providing nice soft, evenly diffused light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great softbox This my third purchase of the Video Pro softbox small. I use it on an Arri 650. It has been perfect for me for video interviews as well as still photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! Our old Chimera softbox had seen better days. After it started smoking because a sagging portion came into direct contact with the bulb, well, we decided to buy a new one. The softbox arrived quickly and in perfect condition. We noticed that our lighting situation is much improved, primarily because our old softbox was dingy with a decade of use. It's like someone said, Let there be light! We are thrilled with the website, the delivery time, and the quality of the new softbox.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chimera Makes the Best We've owned one Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox since 2000, and it's in just as good shape today as the day we opened the box. We use it regularly, and have used it countless times since we bought our first one. In order to light more evenly, we decided a second one would be more cost effective than switching to completely LED or flourescent fixtures for the time being. It's really a great product that stows away well. Obviously, it stands up well to regular use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a classic It's been a great way to light interviews for years. Makes your subjects looks great. I usually use it with either a 650W or 1K light. You'll need a speed ring for every light you plan to put it on. This is my second one of these. The one I bought 4 years ago is still in great shape. But sometimes I've got two shoots going on simultaneously, so I needed a second one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly as intended I have Arri T1 1000watt hotlights. I use larger Chimera softboxes for the key and fill lights but I didn’t have a softbox for the rim light. I chose the small as the light pattern was plenty big and because it wouldn’t be difficult to hang. // The softbox is robust & well made. There have been no problems with the heat.
