    Chimera 7995 reviews

    TL Lightbank Kit without Grid (1000W/120V) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good studio unit not roadworthy I love Chimera Lightbanks, and thought this looked like a cost-effective, compact way to add another 1k to the kit. The base and speedring are very nicely machined, but I find the unit to have some irritating limitations in use. As compared to an open face Arri 1k with the same Lightbank output is lower and so is my ability to control the light using the focus control. The a mogul lamps are difficult to transport, and I end up removing them and packing them in a separate container. More work, more hazard, than I need. The cord is very short, so short in fact that an extension ends up hanging in the air with the light raised to head level. I'm also concerned about needing to carry bulky, highly specific replacement bulbs. In a studio setting, for very soft light close to the subject, this unit is perfect. In a traveling environment where portability, toughness and convenience are paramount, I'll stick with something more robust.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Kit, Compact And Easy to Set Up The kit is nice and easy to setup and use. It is lightweight and a lot more compact than some of the other kits I use. The light is pretty powerful and is a warm color. My only complaint would be that the carrying bag doesn't really offer any protection for the contents. You will need to add a shipping pad, blanket, or some other type of padding to the case so the parts don't destroy each other bouncing around in transit. Other than that, it is a very nice and compact kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flatter Your Talent > Make Them Pop ! Chimera is well-known for its flattering Lightbanks (soft boxes). I use their 1,000 watt TRILOETS to KEY LIGHT TALENT with 3,200K light for HD VIDEO shoots in front of GREEN SCREENS. Conversely, I light my 16x9 format green screens in the background with very bright 5,500K (Daylight) using a pair of vertical 6-tube T5HO fluorescent tube fixtures set at 45 degree angles. We COLOR BALANCE our talent's flesh tones IN POST and the yellowish light from the Chimera Triolets can be tweaked to make the talent dramatically punch out over our keyed-in bluish green screen backgrounds. Chimera Triolets are exquisitely-engineered professional gear. The collapsible ring feature makes them a no-brainer over rigging/softening heavy Fresnel Spots in tight quarters. Like others, my only complaint is their SHORT POWER CORD.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good light and fairly simple to use I wanted a light that could quickly and easily be set up and fit in a small carrying case - this one does that job perfectly. Actually setting up the light is a little more difficult than a Lowell kit that I've tried, but it still only takes about 3-6 minutes. Pretty typical, but the power cable is extremely short. I'd recommend this light to anyone looking for a good tungsten light in the 400-600 price range. P.S. - I use this light for video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Come on... it's Chimera! I have never used this particular rig before but it lives up to what I expect from Chimera. Easy to set up and break down and stores nicely. Could use a seperate hard case for the bulb since it comes in a soft carrying case. Other than that it's a good deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy this is a great small key light kit that all fits into one bag. I have used it on a couple small shoots and it is great for quick setups on a smaller budget shoot.
