Chimera Shallow Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox Large -
The Chimera Shallow Video Pro Plus 1 Softbox (Large) for video applications is designed for use with a broad light with a wide throw, such as a Tota light. With fabric rated for the heat of a continuous light up to 500 W, the Extra Small Shallow Plus for video applications is ideal for work in cramped interiors where medium softening of a broad light is desired.
The "Plus" designation of this softbox means the front face of the softbox is removable. This softbox comes with a one-stop diffusion cloth; 1/2 and 1/4 grid cloths are available separately.
This softbox has a built-in "lip" around the edges to help control light spill. This lip also facilitates the attachment of optional honeycomb grids, fabric grids and louvers.
This softbox is only for lights with a very wide throw. The shallow depth of this softbox will not allow the light from a spotlight to spread out adequately within the box. Exposure then would not be as even across the entire front face of the softbox.
- Recessed front helps to control light spill and facilitates the attachment of an optional honeycomb or fabric grid, or louvers
- This size is perfect for full-length portraits of groups of 3 - 4 people, or large objects
- This softbox is 30% more shallow than the standard Video Pro Plus model. It is best suited for use with flood lights up to 1200 watts
- Equates to more headroom if the box is used overhead, or easier maneuvering in cramped interior shoots
- If used with strobe heads, the head must have a protruding flashtube, which will provide adequate mixing of light inside the softbox
- Required Speed (mounting) Rings are available separately for strobes
