Chimera 6057 overview

  • 1Description

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

The whole Chimera OctaPlus family is compatible with strobes or continuous light sources. When used as a 5 ft bank, it will tolerate up to 1200 watts. When used as a 7 ft bank, 2000 watts is the limit.

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 this model, 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 to the edge has been measured at only a 0.2 F-stop.

    Octaplus 5' Light Bank, 7' Expansion Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light bank I have used this light bank on location shot for 2 weddings. While you'll have to plan your shots carefully, it is doable. The light is great although the light fall off towards the edges is slightly more than specified. I have an assistant, so I plan the shots with the light bank in the middle of the photo shoot, because of the hurry on the wedding day we have to move on very quickly. As advised I use a Avenger grip head, as it is not advisable to mount it directly onto you flash. I will take about 10-15 minutes to set up and about 10 to wrap it all up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful light! After waiting years, I finally made the purchase. This is one huge lightbank, which provides an amazing quality of light that many others try to imitate but just never achieve. The quality of the materials are top, up to Chimera's standards. I have 3 other Chimera softboxes and have never regretted making the purchases. They last long, are built strong here in the USA and not off in some foreign land with boosted mark-up prices and shoddy materials. The lightbank is easy to transport as it comes in 2 bags, one for the 5 foot and the other for the 7 foot extension. Easy set-up and take down. Again the quality of light is it's strong point. You cannot go wrong. Make sure to get a c+ stand, as the size and weight with flash will require a very solid base. People are amazed at the sheer size, I'm amazed at everything else about it! Heard stuff about the elinchrom, but I feel there are great products made here in North America!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great product This is truly a wonderful product. The light is soft and easy to work with. You've got two different sizes which work well for 3/4 shots and the larger size works very well for full length shots. An in studio piece of equipment that you must have!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Octaplus 5' Light Bank, 7' Expansion Kit This is a great light box.. Easy to set up and to use.. I had purchased another brand to try and save some $$, as it turned out.. the other brand was so difficult to set up I went and purchased this one within two months...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made Easy to assemble. Good design and high quality. It is unique in its ability to be changed from a 5' octabank to a 7'. Very nice light quality. It is relatively light but still quite a load on the strobe.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flexible octagan A great octagan, solid, great construction and you have the ability to extend it and make it a bigger light source.
