Chimera Introduces Portable F3 Lightbank

Chimera has debuted the F3 light powered by LiteGear. It’s billed the next evolution of overhead light banks. 

Using LiteGear’s technology, Chimera said the F3 provides reliable, flicker free dimming, CCT from 2600 to 6000K combined with light weight and quick, easy setup. The F3 is easily adjustable to match or contrast with all lighting environments including HMI, tungsten, LED and strobes.

The F3 can be easily hung in a variety of ways, or can be stand-mounted due to its light weight. It works well in the studio and on location. No tools are required for assembly.

Chimera said 5x5 Kit fits in one 15-inch x 60-inch duffel for ease of portability. There is stand alone or DMX control of intensity and CCT. The light has 500/1000W of LiteGear LED engines with CRI and TLCI > 95.
