Chimera 6015 overview

  • 1Description

Beauty dishes provide 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. And then there's the issue of denting. Chimera's Octa 30" Collapsible Beauty Dish revolutionizes the dish by allowing it to fold like a softbox.

You can use it in the standard 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 30" OctaPlus lightbank with that signature wrap-around light quality of light and natural circular catchlights in the eyes of your subjects. The Octa 30" beauty dish uses standard OctaPlus speed rings for strobes or the Versi Octa speed ring for on-camera flash use.

    Chimera 6015 reviews

    Octa 30" Collapsible Beauty Dish is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Dish Haven't used it extensively, nor beauty dishes in general; a bucket with a shower curtain doubled over the front of it may produce the same kind of light. Needed something small, unobtrusive for tight spaces, portable and durable. Pretty much fit the bill. Light's soft as one would expect given the inner baffle bouncing light to the rear and off the sides, then thru the front diffusion. Easy to set up and quality material and craftsmanship, as one would expect from Chimera. There are cheaper alternatives, and maybe worth considering, but I'd rather pay a little more up front than deal with broken tines or failed fabric later.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent light, portable This is my first or second choice light modifier when shooting portaits on location. I like the 30 inch better than the 24 inch for its very slightly softer highlights. Chimera builds things right, sturdy. This beats by light years carryng around a standard metal beauty dish. I am able to us it with my speedlights, Elinchrom heads (with short poles) and Speedotron heads...so I can use it anywhere I want. The light quality is excellent, easily as nice as any other beauty dish I have worked with. It gets softer with the front diffuser. Since it is small source if you move it in and out you can get the contrast & saturation you want on any variation of a head and shoulders portrait.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent compact and portable modifier I use this with Profoto B1 monolights. It's extremely portable and compact which suits the portability of the lights.I can't compare with other beauty dishes as I haven't used any - but it works very well for portraits with just the deflector in place. Nice even crispy light and the deflector lets enough direct light through that you get a pretty clean catchlight (no black dot in the middle). I also got the grid and diffusor and it behaves similarly to my Profoto 3' Octa with those in place. It may in future replace the octa if I can't see much difference.I use it on a standard Profoto RFi speedring with no problems. Not having a Chimera one to compare with I don't know if the fit is any better, but mine looks just like the product shots when mounted so I assume any difference is minimal.The fabric is not as thick or tough as a Profoto softbox, but it seems quite robust.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgous beauty dish After using both Profoto and Chimera light modifiers I've found Chimera to create a prettier light. The Octa 30' is creates beautiful wrap-around light. Great for portraits. Can't get much better than Chimera.
