    Pancake Lantern with Skirt (Medium, Full Diffusion) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly useful! I'm very happy with this Chimera lantern. It's a wonderful tool to create a soft lit area, a beautiful key light or add a nice eye light outside, either with a joker bug or a triolet. The skirt is perfect to control the light spilling around the set, as you can adjust four sides independently. Roll it up to the desired effect. Setting up is pretty easy, and it all packs into a small soft bag. Another fabulous product by Chimera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lighting a dinner table... I bought this Softbox to light a group sitting at a dinner table and it works great! With subtle adjustments of the people and position of the lantern, a variety of moods can be achieved. Chimera Softboxes are very easy to use, durable, compact and always deliver a great result. Only downside if I had to pick one is that they take up a lot of space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just get it Great softbox, didn't really expect anything less coming from chimera. It takes little time to build, well-made, perfect overhead light. Was a little bigger than I imagined even though I had the dimensions, but it's perfect for getting a large soft source.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chimear pancake is the right tool for 2 person interviews I usually use a China ball and photo flood bulbs set between the subjects just overhead to one side. This saves the need for two separate key sources. China balls and photo flood fixtures are cheap to buy but the down side is photo floods have a short and unpredictable life spans. Always need several available. And it's not always easy to color balance to the rest of the environment since the daylight bulbs burn no where near real daylight Kelvin. But more importantly I worry a photo flood could burst within the China ball, sending hot glass in harms way. I once had a 500w photo flood explode. Fortunately no one was hurt but the potential was there. Could be the bulb was old or been handled without gloved protection. Oils from skin can eat into the glass and make a weak point under hot pressure. All this to say I wanted a safer yet versatile solution. I had been renting the Chimear pancake then decided to buy. I own some E39 fluorescent bulbs 12 inches long so I found a Chimear triolet fixture that takes E39, E26 and 2 pin adapter for 650w tungsten lamps. A pretty versatile fixture for daylight and tungsten lighting at much higher output than the China ball. Thus more options shooting with windows in the background. As usual, the Chimear products are quite good in build quality, priced as such. Originally, I had bought the preferred small pancake but it was too swallow in depth to house the E39 lamp, which was key to me, so I exchanged for the medium lantern. It is the perfect size for the lamps I wish to use but a little larger than ideal when interviewees are very close together. I back them up for best lighting. Obviously, a more expensive solution then a China ball but cheaper than a law suit.
