Chimera TECH Lightbank Reviews

Great frame, horrible diffuser

By Jonathan
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2019-09-16

I bought this expecting to get a screen, like the type I had been familiar with from using Chimera in the past. However, the diffuser is a piece of frosted plastic. The box that you connect to the 1x1 light panel is great (I have a Dracast 1000). It fits on there perfectly. But I had to buy a separate Chimera diffusion screen that fits into the velcro.

softens light but doesn't particularly cut back on spill

I find this chimera fairly easy to use, but even with the grid cloth element involved doesn't cut back on spill as well as the traditional chimera with the egg-crate foldable/fixed. I think maybe they need to involve a better grid element in this. It does soften the light, although the light is already soft, and focus a bit better.

I'm a gaffer and use mine on Litepanels Astras.� I much prefer this to the bag model that litepanels pushes.� It leaves plenty room for the vents and it sets up quicker and folds down smaller.� Someone posted in a review that it covered up the vents., I will post a picture to show otherwise.

Quality and simplicity yields results

This soft box is exactly what we needed for our 1x1 LitePanels Astra. We had another one of these, and it was great. Good build (a little more fragile than I'd like though), great results when paired with Rag Shop diffusion. The lens diffusion that comes with the soft box is pretty useless for our interview filming type stuff. We had another company's 1x1 light box but this one just fits the light so perfectly. My only complaint is that the elastic design for gripping the light could be better; the side grips get stuck in the twisty knobs and the corner grips ought to have a little grippy rubber on them to make them stay put better.

question

Is this compatible with the Genaray 1x1?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, that is not compatible. The softbox uses a speedring that slides in to the light. And the Genaray 360 is not the exact same size as a Lite-panel 1x1.The Airbox model 1x1 will work.

question

Does the Chimera 1648 have a silver interior? It appears that the front face is interchangeable. Is there any light loss compared to a bare Area48 (I ask because the DOP choice soft box uses a silver interior to reflect some of the side spill forward and increases the output by 1 stop).
Asked by: Barry
The Chimera 1648 No Frame Softbox for BBS Area 48 has a soft silver interior. It comes with two (2) different front screens, one with 1/2 density diffusion and one with 1/4 density diffusion.
