The Ultimate Ring of Light – The RingMAXX

Shoot The Centerfold and Chimera, the premiere innovator of light modifiers, is introducing a new 48” ring light. Along with the larger size, this unit is very versatile in how the light is distributed within the unit and on your subjects. Inspired by international master of lighting Jarmo Pohjaniemi, the revolutionary RingMaxx brings unique flexibility for image makers plus an incomparable quality of light. It’s the ultimate beauty light!

You will experience coverage over five times that of a standard ring light. Light can be controlled for extreme precision and detail by altering power settings on each light and adjusting 4 independent and controllable chambers.

 

Model #1910 Strobe Lights Version
RingMAXX for photography allows you to open an entire new world of lighting from portraits to beauty to glamour and fashion with one single light modifier. A RingMAXX equipped with strobe heads will offer you directional and non-directional (4 axis) lighting scenarios which is the strength and the magic that separates RingMAXX from all the others.

RingMAXX can be supported by using two C-stands with one on each side. For ultimate maneuverability, the yoke stand as seen in this image offers the most freedom while re-positioning. Panning, L & R, tilt up or down, roll it on a smooth surface to your desired location at ease. Any low-rolling stand with wheels will get the job done. The mobile JR Stand as seen above is one of the recommended mini stands for RingMAXX.

The rear of the RingMAXX has zippered openings allowing an ideal fit for a variety of lights that attach your strobe or continuous lights to the RingMAXX’s internal frame using “Baby Pins” that are included with your RingMAXX purchase. We recommend the Chimera Triolet with 500 or 1000 watt bulbs or your 200 watt HMI of choice for continuous daylight shooting.

Add a bottom beauty glow or a side fill to create cosmetic campaigns at ease without ever moving the RingMAXX or your model. Let the light move for you.

From one light, come many

RingMAXX is not just a ring light. RingMAXX is more like multiple light modifiers in one that give you, the photographer, an ability to modify the direction of light and its effectiveness and quality by dialing your strobes up or down in power in 4 axes. RingMAXX gives you the ultimate beauty light as seen in cosmetic campaigns. Choose soft, harsh or subtle light and shadows that emphasize the desired look or personality of your subject.

One of the most challenging aspects in photography and lighting is the complexity of perfection. RingMAXX was designed to eliminate unnecessary effort by a master photographer Jarmo Pohjaniemi whose beauty work includes some of the most prestigious body of lighting performance and execution. “Why build lavish lighting setups with multiple light sources when you can have it all in one?” says Jarmo Pohjaniemi. RingMAXX is a large size light modifier but very small and compact when compared to other multi lighting setups while trying to achieve same results without RingMAXX.

No other light modifier has ever offered such variety of lighting styles in a single lighting modifier.

RingMaxx Yoke – The Stand

The RingMAXX has an optional custom designed yoke for optimal support. The yoke combined with the Mobile JR Stand will give you the standard height for your work environment.

(Mobile JR Stand sold separately)

The rear of the RingMAXX has zippered openings allowing an ideal fit for a variety of lights. We recommend the Chimera Triolet with 500 or 1000 watt bulbs or your 200 watt HMI of choice for daylight shooting. The RingMAXX can be used in high end portrait/fashion studios and on sets for beauty commercials or can be used as a large light source for glamour, fashion or where large light-sources might be needed.

Light mount assembly – Baby pin

Attach your strobe or continuous lights to the RingMAXX’s internal frame using “Baby Pins” that are included with your RingMAXX purchase. Baby Pins are standard size mounts used in the industry to fit professional lighting equipment and strobes.

C-Stand Spud

RingMAXX can also be used with two C-Stands, one on each side instead of the yoke which is highly recommended for easy maneuverability. For C-Stand usage, use two C-Stand spuds to mount the RingMAXX on two C-Stand knuckles.
