> <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/398702-REG/Chimera_6058_Octaplus_5_Light_Bank.html/prm/alsVwDtl target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/398702-REG/Chimera_6058_Octaplus_5_Light_Bank.html/prm/alsVwDtl</a> < Says that the 7' bank limit is 1,500 Watts, but this one says 2,000; which one is right? I wanna use it with an Arri T2 Location Fresnel and I need to know if it is compatible. Also, what type of diffusion does this product come bundled with? I'm interested in full, half and quarter grid front panels for the 5' and 7' Octaplus banks.
Asked by: Jay
According to the manufacturer, both the 5 foot and 7 foot sizes can withstand up to 3200 watts of continuous lighting. However, Chimera does not offer an Octaplus ring for the Arri T2 Fresnel nor do they offer any other diffusion than the full stop diffuser that is included with the kit.

question

Does anyone know the best way to color correct (CTB on a tungsten light for example) this light?
Asked by: Rentals D.
If the tungsten light placed in this softbox does not have a dedicated gel frame, one could attach a CTB gel on the inner baffle of the light using wooden clothes pins. However, this may require the softbox to be vented due to the build-up of heat that may occur. Your results may vary.

Asked by: Charlie
Hi,I think what that the expansion support kit includes a couple extra pieces of hardware that gives extra support with mounting the head. It's a bracket mount.
