Use this large Chimera Fabric Grid on the front of a 54 x 72" Chimera Large or Photoflex Extra Large softbox to limit the light spread to 20°.
Grids are essential accessories for any lighting system. A grid alters the shape and intensity of the light output from your softbox when it is mounted on a light head. Consider a grid as a painter would a brush or a sculptor would a knife or chisel.
Fabric grids are hand-stitched and collapse easily for storage or transport. Use of a fabric grid, honeycomb grid, or eggcrate will result in a narrower spread of light. The spread of light will be determined by the density of the honeycomb mesh and the distance of the subject from the light.
Chimera's Large equals Photoflex's Extra Large (54 x 72").
Soft grids are revolutionizing the light control options for location film and video crews and photographers.
Collapsible, portable, and extremely lightweight, soft grids have no supporting frame of their own.
Once the job is complete, just detach, give an energetic diagonal snap to align the grid's joints, and fold it down to near pocket-size.
All 1996 Lightbanks have this soft grid compatible hook-and-loop system, and older Lightbanks can be retrofitted.
