The Chimera OB2 PRO Kit puts together the collapsible 24" Octa 2 softbox and the 2800OP Versi Octa Speed Ring to give on-camera flash users access to that unique Octa-quality light.

Beauty dishes have been around a long time providing a unique mix of diffused light with a crisp edge. But the problem with these popular light-shaping tools was always transporting them, requiring outsized cumbersome cases. Chimera's Octa 2 Collapsible Beauty Dish changes all of that with a 24" lightweight source that folds up like a softbox.

You can use it in the classic mode with the included center bounce disc or without it for a harder bare bulb look. Add the included front diffuser and you've got a 2 foot OctaPlus lightbank with wrap-around light quality and circular catchlights. The 24" beauty dish uses standard OctaPlus speed rings or the Versi Octa speed ring for on-camera flash use.

The included Chimera Adjustable Versi Bracket Octa Speed Ring allows you the use your shoe-mount flash unit with Chimera softboxes, including the Octa 2. It's compatible with most professional sized camera flash units with a height of 4.5 - 7.5" (11.43 - 19 cm), measured from base to middle of the reflector.

OB2 PRO Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So this is my second Octa2 I use the Octa2 dish as a primary modifer with my Quadra. Since I was planning a trip that would be speedlight only, I thought about just buying the bracket but the cost of the OB2 Pro Kit was reasonable enough that I just bought a whole unit. Used it earlier on a test shoot -- same creamy light (I used the diffuser) with an SB900 that I get with the Quadra. I'm not sure if there's a better combination of portability, durability and light quality for a speedlight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect combination It's collapsible and you get a beauty dish and octabox in one package. The only con is the Chimera versi bracket that didn't quite centered my 580EXII in the middle with PW Flex at the bottom. Had to make second holes but then it was good to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first use Yes, it's incredibly expensive, but then you snap your photos and forget all about cost and go why, oh why didn't I buy this sooner. Sure there's setup and dismantling time, but they decrease with use and practice. Again, shoot, go ah So much love I'm feeling for my Octa Beauty that when shooting natural light only or ambient plus a reflector I'm often wishing I could bring this out. I love the flexibility of the light edges with this kit. Fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best travel softbox to date True that this little octabox is pricey BUT, consider the materials used and light quality and your preferences to softness and portability, this is the ideal choice. You can purchase something similar that is made in some other country for a couple of dollars but, will it stand up to heavy use ? These units are made right here in the good ole USA and are used by discriminating photogs around the world. Yes, I would purchase again(despite high cost)
