An ultra-powerful, very light portable mini battery with remarkable intelligence and a versatile bi-color mini LED projector created only for creators who are thirsty for new quality creation tools that’s all we’re going to see in this article devoted to the news of the week. Let’s go!
SmallRig VB99 Mini V-Mount
If I tell you that there is a lightweight battery, which takes up less space, with personal intelligence that provides fast charging with overvoltage control, thus providing multiple protection against overcharging, short circuit, and overvoltage. A dream battery, right?!
Rejoice you guys; SmallRig now realizes your dream. Indeed, SmallRig recently launched its new product, the SmallRig VB99 Mini V-Mount. As the name suggests, The SmallRig VB99 Mini V-Mount is a mini battery kit designed to take the burden off the film industry. The VB series is approximately 30% smaller than traditional V-mount batteries.
Characteristically speaking, the VB99 Mini V-Mount is compact and light to carry. It is equipped with an intelligent BMS (a device that manages and monitors equipment) for efficient and safe use. This highly integrated BMS chip takes up less space while supporting the multiple fast charging protocols and 45W (maximum) USB-C PD bidirectional fast charging.
With an efficient OLED screen for precise control and, above all, to keep an eye on the battery’s operating status at all times. And that’s not all; it has multiple interfaces for high compatibilities, such as a camera, camcorder, monitor, wireless video transmitter, lighting fixtures, and more. Rechargeable and stable. This will be another asset in your creator’s tool bag. For more information, I suggest you visit the SmallRig Website.
Have you ever heard of the expression “Size doesn’t matter?” I’m pretty sure you already heard about it. Today with the FS-60B Bi-color LED light from Nanlite, we have proof that size doesn’t necessarily matter. Indeed, this LED light is compelling compared to what one might imagine by seeing its size.
Whether a photographer or a filmmaker, you’ll be amazed by its flexibility and efficiency. Nanlite offers you a budget-friendly lighting solution for limited spaces. Your limit will be your creativity because imagine; it can light up your live stream, video recording, and photo shoot. This compact, robust, versatile light has a 45° reflector to deliver an output of 6228 lumens. It emits up to 13,360 Lux of 5600K daylight-balanced light at 3.3′. Even better, it has a CCT range of 2700K-6500K with a high CRI/TLCI of 96/97, ensuring advanced and accurate color rendering. The two-tone design provides warmer tungsten and cooler daylight tones while maintaining pleasing skin tones.
It also has a wireless remote control on board. It can also be controlled remotely via Bluetooth with the free Nanlink app available on iOS and Android. It also features a 1.3″ OLED screen for precise and easy direct control.
As for the sounds, don’t worry; Nanlite has thought of everything. It has a built-in ventilation system that will never interfere with your audio recordings.

Made for beginners and advanced users, it fits into smaller studio and shooting spaces. Moreover, it has a very accurate color performance similar to other advanced Nanlite fixtures. Did I forget to mention that it only weighs 850g?
Nanlite said on their website, “More options, more value.”
