Chimera Fabric Grid for Large Softbox 30 degrees (54x72") -
Use the Chimera Fabric Grid on the front of a 54 x 72" Chimera Large, or Photoflex Extra Large softbox to limit the light spread to 30 degrees. Grid is an essential accessory for any lighting system. A grid alters the shape and intensity of the light output from your softbox when it is mounted on a light head. Consider a grid as a painter would a brush, or a sculptor would a knife, or chisel.
Fabric grid is hand-stitched and collapse easily for storage or transport. Use of a fabric grid, honeycomb grid, or "egg crate" will result in a narrower spread of light. The spread of light will be determined by the density of the honeycomb mesh and the distance of the subject from the light.
Support and Cushioning:
- Collapsible, portable and extremely lightweight, soft grid has no supporting frame of their own
- Once the job is complete, just detach, give an energetic diagonal snap to align the grid's joints and fold it down to near pocket-size
- All 1996 Lightbanks have this soft grid compatible hook & loop system and older Lightbanks can be retrofitted
