“While I’ve been using Chimera products for over two decades, their strip banks were not part of my battery of tools, until recently. I’ve been creating a body of work expressing the combined power of nature with human physicality and spirit. The strips, in all their sizes, provide the essential lighting control I need to make exactly what I want to produce happen, whether I am on location or in the studio.” - Jeff Boxer

“Chimera makes the best softboxes I have used. They don't yellow over time and provide all the accessories I could ever want. I almost always use them with the eggcrate fabric grids to contain the light.” - Michael Grecco

“I once had the pleasure of hearing a lecture by the late, great W. Eugene Smith. He said he used only available light. Any light of any kind that was available, he would use it. Light is the foundation, spirit, and soul of our photographs. Chimera is some of the great light available in my opinion.” - Jack Reznicki

“With a Chimera F2 the sky has no limit; it is virtually at your disposal. You can count on the “Golden Hour” at any time of day. If photography means to write with light (from the Greek), then owning a Chimera F2 will offer you the talent of a fine calligrapher to trace the line of any motor vehicle with a clean and uninterrupted highlight. It is the only available lightbank large enough to do so and yet portable enough to carry on location.” - Tom Zimberoff


President’s Letter For the nearly 30 years that Chimera has been providing the best and most innovative lighting products to professionals and serious imagemakers in the film, video and photographic community, we have experienced great changes in our industry and profession. Professionals, technicians, imagemakers and companies have had to transform and adapt to change or perish. Digital technology, computers, the internet, worldwide sourcing and production availabilities, and many other factors have impacted all of us. Advances in the scope of products available have brought the art of image making to an ever broadening number of artists world wide. The new innovations have placed an array of tools and information in the hands of all imagemakers, but there still remain the constants required for true genius – talent, individuality, uncompromising standards, vision, creativity, and courage. Hidden by the blur of technology and the pace of change are the basic principles of success that have been present in the artist forever. As you will see in this catalog, Chimera continues to transform and adapt to the ever changing landscape while at the same time, continuing its uncompromising standards. Chimera’s overriding goal is to provide our customers and dealers with products and services of unparalleled value that consistently exceed your expectations in quality, performance and reliability. We continue to strive for our customers to have as much pride in Chimera’s products as we do.

Gary Del Fium President

“With lighting being the most variably creative aspect of any production, it is important to have the right tools that can shape the light in order to depict the mood and texture of a scene and the characters in any particular script. Chimera provides an impressive array of Soft Boxes that allow me to get the wrap and the reflectance I need on a subject without losing detail to highlights. I particularly appreciate the versatility of interchangeable rings, which makes it convenient to use the same boxes on different light sources.” - Tom Musto

“I never place a lighting order without including Chimera Lightbanks. I can’t imagine shooting without them. On my last Emmy nominated HBO movie, Mrs. Harris, we used many different sizes and shapes, including the Chimera Lanterns. One of my favorite ways to use Chimera banks is with the Barger-Baglite. There isn’t a smoother, more even wrap around light in the business.” - Steven Poster ASC

F2

The ultimate in big job lighting for in-studio or on-location, CHIMERA F2 Lightbanks provide large, clean, continuous specular highlights. Soft Silver interior of the F2 makes an extremely efficient light source. An internal removable baffle further diffuses the light for incredibly even highlights. Lights, preferably bare-tube strobes, barebulb HMI’s, or wide-beam open-faced tungsten, mount on 5/8 inch baby pins. Sizes range from 10x20 to 15x40 feet. The Modular F2 Frame is composed of 5 foot wide by 10 foot long sections which guarantee fast, efficient set-ups and a more rigid structure in the largest sizes. Under Development CHIMERA is re-designing a component F2 system for more flexibility of use – for both studio and location.

Another exclusive CHIMERA innovation, Lanterns serve well as a central soft light for round-table interviews and for filling interior shooting spaces with soft, ambient light. Lanterns can be used with strobes or continuous light sources and can be set up on any Speed Ring from the Strobe or Video PRO Bank category. For maximum effectiveness use with a “bare bulb� type lighting instrument. The unique Pancake Lanterns, with innovative, removable, zipper-panel skirt (optional), offers great possibilities for fine-tuning light fall-off.

Strobe Speed Rings The backbone of the CHIMERA system, we make the best Speed Rings available fitting just about every lighting instrument made.

Quick Release Ring The CHIMERA Quick Release Ring is constructed of high-grade 6061/T6 aircraft aluminum and with its unique patented design, the Quick Release Ring allows you to set up a Lightbank as quickly as an umbrella! A flip of the lever allows you to easily release the tension of the Lightbank poles, simplifying setup and tear down of larger Lightbanks and Strip Banks. Ideal for the quick folding of Lightbanks to move through doorways or narrow sets. Strobe Speed Rings Manufacturer

Durable and lightweight Window Patterns work with CHIMERA Panel frames for lighting backgrounds for interviews, portraits, still life and much more. No more pulling venetian blinds from windows or chopping tree branches to create the look you want. Two patterns can be combined with the frame holder, or be creative by using one pattern and a color gel! Easy to use and attaches to Velcro™.
