NANLITE Managing Director Nancy feels so proud about this bundle release, saying:
“We always think that the Forza series is one of the pillars of our product portfolio. We’re determined to make people first think of Forza at the mention of NANLITE. I think this time people will have a deeper impression about how Forza will change their life in content creation and filmmaking.”
Refreshing users’ memories on classics from NANLITE with Forza 60/60B II, an upgrade from the first generation to explore the potential of small and compact LED even further.
Making NANLITE’s voice heard more clearly this time with the official launch of Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II – all comprehensive upgrades from the inside out.
Experience the Next Level of LED Spotlight Technology with the Forza 60/60B II
Based on years of genuine user feedback and their research and development, NANLITE is ready to demonstrate how much their LED spotlights have improved since they were first introduced three years ago. With the new Forza 60 II and 60B II, many aspects have been taken to the next level without compromising the strengths of the first generation, such as interaction, control, noise management, and more.
Forza 60/60B II packs stunning output inside ultra-compact bodies as its predecessor did; illuminance levels stand at 3,420lux/2,096lux@1m with light only. With Maximum/Constant output modes incorporated, Forza 60B II features a constant light ratio while adjusting CCT from 2700K to 6500K. Both Forza 60/60B II also perform excellently in color rendition; CRI and TLCI rated 96 and 98, respectively.
Building in 11/12 special effects with each parameter adjustable, Forza 60/60B II allow creators to bring their imaginations to life with the help of multiple control options, including onboard, 2.4G, Bluetooth, and DMX/RDM. Noise management has been improved for the lights to stand out from competitors by lowering the noise level to 20dbA even with the fan rotating. Thus, there is no need to shut down the fan for most sound recording applications to sacrifice intensity.
Forza 60/60B II uses the same compact and sturdy FM Mount. An included adapter provides compatibility with Bowens mount accessories. Apart from AC power, the lights have a DC power option via a battery grip compatible with either NPF or V-mount battery. Both lights support firmware upgrades via the USB port on the bottom of the lamp head, keeping the window to the future open. Based on user feedback via firmware updates, more new features and operations will be brought on board.
Since NANLITE always continues exploring the field of LED lighting technology to establish a Chinese brand respected by the world, their unrelenting efforts bear additional fruit on the new Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II. If Forza 60/60B II is just the appetizer, then Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II will be the main dish. All innovations and improvements in the 60W range have also been integrated into the 300W and 500W fields with proper modifications.
Four point-source lights take to the stage simultaneously to recombine the DNA of Forza and revamp the creation process even more. Covering power consumption of 300W/500W and CCT range of 2700K-6500K, more possibilities in creation will be opened with them working together with other Forzas already making a difference on the market.
Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II inherit the same Forza gene featuring an even field of light with quality. The typical intensity loss when adding bi-color functionality is avoided this time. All fixtures feature W(RG)/WW(RG) color mixing systems with G/M±80 tunability. NANLITE R&D team thus provides creators with perfect weapons to easily tackle various lighting situations.
Color rendering capabilities of Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II have been re-evaluated and improved comprehensively as well, making them reliable additions to filmmakers’ toolkits. Giving true-to-life colors is a sure thing with Forza 300/500 II CRI/TLCI scores of 96/97 and Forza 300B/500B II CRI/TLCI scores of average 96/97.
Redesigned for Maximum Convenience and Intuitive Control
In terms of both form factors and internal structure, enormous efforts have been put into perfecting the designs. The control box features a new compact concept with the power adapter inside, reducing the overall control unit size of Forza 300/300B II by 37% and Forza 500/500B II by 16%. V-mount battery plates on both sides, curved yoke with a one-sided locking mechanism, and integrated quick-release device provide more convenience on set.
The control interface features intuitive operation with comprehensive controlling methods. All four fixtures include built-in 2.4G and Bluetooth dual modules, providing a playground for NANLINK to stretch its muscles in studio shooting and live streaming. Support DMX/RDM control via wire connection to meet the exacting demands of film crews for more complicated lighting control in groups with precision and stability.
Regarding power supplies, these four fixtures can handle a variety of shooting scenarios effortlessly with dual batteries, and 14.4V-14.8V batteries can be used simultaneously. All units also support single battery power operation for fast power switching when in low battery. This innovation enables hot-plugging and hot swapping between AC/DC for Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II, free of interruption of operation.
Customizable Parameters, InfinitePotential for Filmmakers
The Forza II series incorporates a new adjustable cooling system with 4 operation modes: SMART, FULL SPEED, LOW SPEED, and OFF. Noise level lowers to 23dBA in SMART mode. Noise management is also greatly optimized over the last generation in FULL SPEED mode. No noise interference concerns will exist for sound-sensitive shooting environments, such as interviews, MV, and TVC shooting.
The Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II come with a standard Bowens mount with an extra umbrella mount. Various modifiers under NANLITE or other third parties can be attached seamlessly to unleash infinite light-shaping possibilities. Not only does the quick-release clamp come standard, but the extended connection cables -– DC connection cable (3M) and AC connection cable(6M). With 7.5M and 12M DC connection cables sold separately, rigging the fixtures up high on set will be a breeze. The included carrying bag has also been upgraded – made of solid, hollow plates with enhanced stitches outside for more durability.
All FXs strive for a harmonious blending of practical imitation and artistic modification and expanding the possibility of the scenarios you pictured in mind.
With 11 effects built in Forza 300/500 II and 12 effects built in Forza 300B/500B II, respectively, the lights help bring complex creative ideas to life for filmmakers. Parameters for every single effect are tunable via onboard control, with more customization available via NANLINK APP. The built-in USB port allows for firmware upgrade via USB flash drive, leaving the door open for unfolding potentials in the future.
