ARRI Softbank Kits combine hard Fresnel sources with a Chimera Softbank. The larger diffused Softbank creates a soft, less defined shadow edge (soft light) like that of a cloudy day and is excellent for interview situations. The use of softer light sources is more forgiving when lighting people. However, diffused soft sources can be difficult to control as they disperse light in many directions. Use care to control the “spill light”.
Choosing an ARRI Lighting Kit
The best kit for your application depends on your production needs and artistic preferences. Ideally the kit should offer flexibility to work in many different situations. You'll want to consider fixture types, total wattage and the size and weight of the kit. If you need softer lighting you should look carefully at the kits containing Chimera Softbanks. The first step is to determine what light source best suits your needs.
