Photographers heading off to the studio this winter may be interested in new gear from Lastolite that includes two new lighting softboxes.

Designed to be portable, the collapsible 180x120cm MegaLite (pictured) includes a silver reflective panel.

It costs £189.99 and can be used as a floor standing unit or with Lastolite?s adjustable stand (which comes with wheels), available separately priced £49.99.

Also new is the KickerLite, billed as a ?low-level? angled softbox, designed as a ?fill light? to bring out detail in shadow areas such as under the chin and around the eyes in portraits.

The KickerLite measures 120x90cm and costs £134.99.

Both products are due out in January.
