question

The picture for the 9930OP Chimera Triolet Flood Light with Octaplus Speed Ring shows an Octaplus speed ring without quick release (9890OP), but the included equipment lists an Octaplus Speed Ring with quick release (9890QR). Which is it?
Asked by: Jeffrey Lawlis
This kit would include a Chimera Octaplus Dedicated Speed Ring for Triolet which has fixed corners rather than quick release corners. Chimera only manufacturers their Quick Release Speed Rings in the 4 corner type.

question

Can I put a CFL bulb in this ?
Asked by: Mrinal D.
The Chimera Socket Adapter - Mogul to Medium Base, B&H # CHRMMB, would allow you to use a CFL bulb, such as either the Eiko Spiral Fluorescent Lamp (85W/120V), B&H # EIFS85, or the Eiko Spiral Fluorescent Lamp (105W / 120V), B&H # EIFS105Z, with the Chimera Video Pro Plus 1 Triolet Kit.

question

Is the power adjustable?
Asked by: Adam M.
The Chimera Triolet Flood Light does not have a control to adjust output power. As such, you would have to purchase a dimmer such as the Impact D1000 1,000W AC Dimmer Control (110-120V), B&H # IMD1000, for your planned usage needs.

question

How hot does this light get, and what is the expected bulb life?
Asked by: Marty F.
Whie we do not have a specific temperature rating, as the Chimera Video Pro Plus 1 Triolet Kit (220V) does use a 1000W tungsten bulb, the light fixture does produce quite a bit of heat. It is advised to use gloves designed for lighting, such as either the Setwear Hothand Gloves (Large), B&H # SESHH05010, or the ARRI Leather Grip Gloves (Large), B&H # AR850010 (depending on the size you need) when using the unit. The Chimera Mogul Base Lamp has a estimated life expectancy of approximately 2000 hours.

question

For use with the Chimera Medium Pancake, what is the difference between this Speed Ring and this one?? <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/463404-REG/Chimera_9930_Triolet_Mogul_Base_Flood.html target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/463404-REG/Chimera_9930_Triolet_Mogul_Base_Flood.html</a>
Asked by: Bruce E
I ma sorry but I am not sure which two speed rings you are trying to compare. A regular speed ring only has the pole holes on the outside edges. When assembling a chimera (or similar) soft box, those poles are hard to get in the ring. Especially the last one where the final formation of the soft box or pancake lantern takes it's final shape. The one that comes with the Triolet, or sold separately as a Quick Release type, has the four pol mounting holes that swivel inward. once the pol in in the hole, you can easily use the pole as leverage to bend outward. As it does so, the mount snaps and locks in place. In assembling a pancake lantern, this becomes even more important because the quick release ring helps avoid all the stumbling around in getting the fabric correct on the mount and wire frame. It simply makes the job of set-up and tear down much easier. I got a triolet last December with the quick release speed ring and it has been a joy to work with. Not only is the panacake lantern a joy to light with, but the assembly is quick.Greg KubitschekLincoln, NE
