The Chimera Medium Daylight Plus 1 is designed for use with medium fresnel lights up to 6000 Watts. It may also be used with a strobe light. The extra depth of the Daylight allows the light beam from a Fresnel fixture to spread out and cover the front face more evenly.
The "Plus 1" designation means the face of the box is removable. Chimera makes different strengths of diffusion material for front face applications. This softbox comes with a one stop diffusion cloth. Additional 1/2 and 1/4 grid cloths are available separately.
Substituting a half or quarter diffusion, or taking out the interior baffle will result in more contrast, slightly more light transmission, and less softening of the light.
Recessed face makes the soft source more directional, and enables addition of a honeycomb grid, soft fabric grid or louvers
