CHIMERA LIGHTING 1865 PANCAKE LANTERN MEDIUM
Chimera 1865 Pancake Lantern Medium
Chimera is the premier designer and manufacturer of quality lighting products for film, video, and still photography, creating products to supply videographers, film-makers and photographers with studio quality lighting on location.
Chimera Lightbanks transform harsh light into a controlled, diffused soft source. Simple and quick to set up and use, lightweight, and extremely durable, Chimera products are not only ideal in the studio, they are perfectly designed for location use. They are tough, lightweight, and extremely portable.
The 1865 Pancake Lantern Medium introduces practicality and durability to the omni-directional soft lighting realm of the traditional Chinese lantern. This high-tech version of the lantern serves well as a central soft light for round-table interviews and for filling interior shooting spaces with soft, ambient light.
The Standard Lanterns provide soft fill light, are easy to set up and easy to use. Flatter and more space efficient, the Pancake Lantern, with its innovative, removable, zipper-panel skirt, offers great possibilities for fine- tuning light fall-off.
Lanterns can be set up on any Speed Ring from the Strobe or Video PRO Bank category, but for maximum, omni- directional effectiveness use it on a "bare bulb"-type lighting instrument. Hook & loop-attached skirts can be used to selectively block light.
Speed ring or mogul socket is not included, and should be ordered separately.
