Chimera 6050 overview

  • 1Description

Chimera's OctaPlus family of octagonal Lightbanks have a patent pending design that allows conversion of this 5-foot Lightbank to the OctaPlus 7-foot Lightbank in just a few minutes, with no tools -- just the optional conversion kit. This unique design gives you two Lightbanks in one.

The whole Chimera OctaPlus family is compatible with strobes or continuous lightsources up to 1200 watts (2000 watts for the OctaPlus 7 ft.).

This light bank requires a speed ring to adapt it to your particular strobe or hot light. Refer to the Accessories section, or click on the Speed Ring Adapter Chart in Specifications for your speed ring. A 3770 stand adapter or other model stand adapter is also recommended for the larger models, so the weight of the light bank is not supported by the fixture.

Soft silver interior with an innovative graduated baffle for very even light spread.
Fall off from the center of the 7 foot front screen (for example) to the edge has been measured at only a 0.2 F-stop.

    Chimera 6050 reviews

    Octaplus Expandable Light Bank - 5' is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. When it comes to soft boxes, I wouldn't buy anything else other than Chimera. The Octaplus is a great, big, beautiful light source. It is east to set up. We use it with the Profoto D1 and after you get it on the speed ring, it slides easily right on to the moonlight. One of my favorite things about Chimera, is the lip around their soft boxes, making easy to control the light. I would highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO SOFT!!! Ive been using this soft box with a the 1k Lowell DP light and am loving the quality of light I'm getting out of this combo. It is quite cumbersome, so make sure you have the ceiling space to use this soft box. It also is quite heave to hang on a c-stand so make sure you buy the chimera stand adapter. The throw with the baffle is around 6' and without 12' I've found. Perfect for interviews, portraits and more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from (almost) Indispensable tool... While it's a little tricky to assemble (and just a little cumbersome), once this thing's together, the quality of light it puts out is just lovely... I've been using with a triolet for the Arri Alexa.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Bought it for interviews and drama recrees and it has been an excellent source of light. Worth every penny. Very easy to set up. The build quality is outstanding.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great source This is a great source. Low profile and a broad face. Its a little cumbersome, but once it lands, its a winner.
