The Cheetah Stand Easy Open Deep Parabolic Softboxis one of the most thoughtfully designed light modifiers. Multiple configurations means this softbox can produce anything from a hard, direct light source that accentuates your subject, to a beautifully softened source of light that envelopes your subject. These superbly efficient light modifiers utilize the impressive Easy-Open system for quick setup, convenient break down, and compact storage. Use with the beauty dish alone to create a hard source with a softer center. Use of combinations of the outer and inner diffusion material to go even farther to produce different levels of contrast, sharpness, and dimension. Add the optional Chopstick Focusing System MKII to convert to a direct, focus-able light source. Click here to see Customer's Sample photos using the same Cheetah Stand 48" Deep Parabolic Softbox!

Use the outer diffuser only (with/without Beauty Dish) to produce soft light with more distinct contrast.
Use both inner and outer diffuser (with/without Beauty Dish) to produce very soft light.
Use the included professional quality Eggcrate Grid (40 degree) to shape light, control spread and produce a natural vignette.
