    Pro Panel Fabric Kit - 48x48" is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage The reflector doesn't reflect even midday Texas sun half as well as a cheap reflector but the problem was the frame stuck together the first time I used it. Luckily I wasn't going on a plane otherwise I'd have to leave it behind because it WOULD NOT break down with two men playing tug-o-war with it. After I got home I tried to tap the connector ears with a rubber mallet to loosen the frank connector but I broke the ears off which are held on by about 1mm of soft aluminum so light taps broke them off. Had I known I'd have used machine gun lube like LSA. I have a 2x2 frame kit from the same order and I think I'll return both and just stick to Matthews gear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice light control and I'm getting better at assembly. There have been many times I had a need for a 4 X 4 reflector, diffuser, flag combo and this was on sale for less than I could make a wobbly one out of PVC. It works very well and the panels are easy to use, the only thing I don't like is it is a bungee cord assembly. I have nothing against them but it does make breaking it down for storage harder. There is a specific way it needs to be broken down to fit in the bag and the first time I did it I spent way too long playing with it, since then , not a problem. Mounts on my grip heads and my boom arm clamps. For the sale price I paid I consider it a good to very good value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chimera Portable Pro Panel Kit 48x48 The Chimera Pro Panel Fabric Kit 48x48 is a great light modifier for both outdoors and in the studio. The listing states it is lightweight, but I didn't realize how light it really is until it arrived. It is simple to assemble and sets up in seconds. All the panels fit easily and snugly. The metal rods are strung together so they are connected, but can be folder to fit nicely into the carrying bag. It is a great tool to filter bright sunlight (or diffuse strobes) into a more diffuse softbox quality lighting. The lightweight aluminum rods are strong and light. This makes them a little challenging in windy situations, but with grips, solid stands and sand bags, they stay put. My only knock is that the kit should include gold and zebra panels. I had to order these separately.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Previously bought a standard, uncollabsible 4x4 which was great, but you pretty much need a grip truck to fit it. Since we didn't have a grip truck, it didn't get used much! The Pro Panel by Chimera is very compact when broken down, so we can take it anywhere. Only complaints are that it's difficult to break down as the rods have a lot of tension, and the price. It's also not cheap for what it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST REFLECTOR EVER !! I use this product as a reflector, scrim, or said (black) to reduce light. 3 options in one indestructible aluminum frame. This frame with a standard knuckle is very versatile, strong, light weight and easy to travel with. This has to be the most compact and durable frame I have ever seen in the last 16 years in my profession as a photographer. Chimera should spend a dollar or 2 and market these more. They would sell a ton because it is such a great frame. The only thing that hurts is the price of this unit. I quickly got over it after using it just a few times. It is well worth the money for the options it serves. I fellow photographer has been using 2 of these for about a year on nearly every shoot he does and they still look practically brand new. They ship with a great bag that can actually hold 2-3 frames if needed and knuckles. I really cannot say enough about this piece of equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Reflector / Diffusor Kit Great size for bouncing / absorbing / diffusing light. I use this for each with both still and video shots.
