Mark and Rick,

Thanks a bunch for taking the time to respond so thoughtfully. I do agree the best "wrap" comes from getting the light as practically close to the subject as possible. My choice would be a large source through some level of diffusion on large frames, or bouncing light back through a light diffusion. However, this specific use is for those situations when I'm in a 10x10 office/closet. I'll stick with the Chimera because upon some research, without additional stands and accessories, it's look is somewhat softer than the Rifa. I was using a D-light but am switching to a tota. The other case against the Rifa is the absurd cost of the egg crate. I use that all the time on the Chimera and setting up stands to flag is not practical for this. By the way Mark, did you check out http://www.lighttools.com/subgrouping.htm?cat=20880 to see if you can get their egg crate cheaper for the Rifa?


Thanks again. You guys really helped me work this out.

Mark D'Agostino
