CheetahStand has introduced a slew of new studio lighting products with quirky names over the past few months.

The Colt 45 is a “high performance” Bowens S-fit reflector, so named because it provides a 45° beam angle for “maximum light intensity”. It retails for $129.95 (or under $99 with some daily deals).

The RiceBowl series of deep parabolic softboxes comprises the RB-90, RB-120 and RB-150 models, which are 90cm, 120cm and 150cm (36″, 48″ and 60″) in diameter, respectively. CheetahStand says:

“The RiceBowl deep para softbox provides beautiful wraparound light and are built for commercial, beauty, and fashion photographers. Build quality is made for long lasting use at a price that won’t leave you eating Ramen Noodles for months.”
