    Pros1. Dish is made with heavy nylon material2. Pre bent , metal rods with blunt tips3. Speedring is made of solid aluminum with aluminum bracket to hold flash head, metal screws attaches bracket to speedring (no plastic here)4. White disk reflector and diffuser are included.5. carry case is also included , looks to be made of similar material as softbox.6. Soft,directional wrap around light(even better with grid)7. Works soo good with Canon 600 ex RT .cons;1. (Only) somewhat pricey compared to others.You can get a cheaper brand and hope for the best or get a Chimera and get gorgeous light and a unit that can last a long time. I've been using Chimeras for ten years (mostly location shoots) and have withstood many a drop (children playing close to light stands, beach breezes, inebriated party guests...) these guys are made to be used by pros and I can why. It's small enough that, I take one and a portable stand... 5/5 mostdangerous city in the usa El Paso (El Paso, TX) - See all my reviews This review is from: Chimera OB2 PRO Kit (Camera) Pros1.

    Its okay

    0 3/5 Joseph W. Mccary "Joe" (Washington, DC) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Airbox Lights 450024 Mini Softbox with Eggcrate (Black) (Electronics) It was smaller than I thought it would be and much flatter too, not as deep as the picture shown. It does soften the light and that is good. They should sell it with some standoff mount as it is too big to fit on the camera as is. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 27, 2013
