Nanlite Forza 300B II
Adopting the generous output and the compact form of the Forza 300 and 300B models, Nanlite has added key refinements in every regard to improve the performance of its second-generation Forza 300B II Bi-Color LED Monolight. Featuring an adjustable color temperature of 2700-6500K with green-magenta shift by +/- 80, this spotlight is a step up to the next level of quality for your video and photo productions. It will blend seamlessly into any ambient light situation, match other fixtures, or allow creative expression. The light comes with a 55° reflector, Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz for wireless control, DMX/RDM capability, and four fan modes for speed adjustments or absolute silence. A redesigned control unit is also included with the ability to efficiently run on AC power or optional V-mount batteries.
The Forza 300B II ships with an upgraded curved yoke that allows 360° rotation for a greater tilting range when used with optional large modifiers. A 5/8″ receiver accepts industry-standard light stands and the light’s Bowens mount is widely compatible with multiple light modifiers. The light is ready for worldwide use thanks to its 110 to 240 VAC power supply, but it can also run one or two optional side-mounted 14.8V V-mount batteries for situations when AC current is unavailable. A padded carry bag is supplied for protection during storage and transport.
With the included 55° reflector, the Forza 300B II outputs up to 68,060 lux at 3.3′ (5600K). When equipped with the separately available FL-20G Fresnel with barndoors the light’s output climbs to an impressive 151,000 lux.
Accurate Color & Special Effects
The Forza 300B II features a CRI of 96 and a TLCI of 97, meaning you can shoot with confidence knowing the color reproduction will be precise. Besides color accuracy, the light offers 12 built-in customizable effects that can be saved as presets using the free NANLINK app.
In shooting situations where you need to match other light sources or achieve a specific look, it can be extremely helpful to adjust the green-to-magenta shift for color correction. With this Forza 300B II’s feature you can tweak the color by +/- 80 to get there. The Forza 300B II is the first 300W spotlight with this ability, which is possible by its WW(RG) LED source.
