Chimera to Showcase Frameless Lightbank and Lantern for the Fluotec Cinelight 60 at 2018 IBC Show

At the 2018 IBC Show, Chimera Lighting will be showcasing their new frameless Lightbank and lantern for the Fluotec Cinelight 60.

The Lightbank is lightweight, collapsible and handmade in Colorado to Chimera’s high quality standards. The Lightbank uses Chimera standard small size front screens and increases the aperture of the Fluotec Cinelight 60 to 24” x 32” (607 mm x 83 mm). 

Chimera has developed innovative fabrics that withstand the rigors of high temperatures. This means more shooting, less worry about equipment, and getting the broad-source, diffused light you want as well as the lightweight, portable design you require.

The Lightbank (p/n 1629F) will be sold as a kit, with grid-less front screens in Full and Half, packed in a messenger style kit bag, all weighing less than 2 lbs (0.9 kg).

The Chimera Lantern for Fluotec Cinelight 60 kit (p/n 1842) uses a frame to mount in the fixture accessory holder and expands to 28”x 35” x 22-1/2” tall (711mm x 889mm x 572mm). Based on the concept of the traditional Chinese lantern, the company's Lanterns are great modern-day solutions for portable omni-directional soft lighting.

The kit includes 27-1/2” (698 mm) skirts, which can be rolled up and down to control spill, as well as packing into a zippered duffel.
