The Aputure Light Storm LS1 is a punchy LED light prime for a softbox. Well, Aputure and Chimera teamed up to make one that is very simple to use.
The softbox doesn’t require a frame. Instead, it uses the barn doors to attach. The Chimera softbox has four sleeves that the barn doors slide into. This makes it very simple and doesn’t add any extra weight to the fixture. The softbox will come with two front diffusers that velcro to the front.
Pricing for the Chimera softboxes is approximately $250 to $290.
