Nanlite shines brighter with Forza updates

Posted on Jan 17, 2023

Upgrades to the Forza range sees improved noise levels, advanced cooling systems, and mount accessories to unleash creativity

Wolverhampton, UK

Nanlite takes the strengths of its first-generation Forza – interaction, control and noise management – and delivers second-generation ultra-compact LED spotlights. Updates cover Forza 60 II and 60B II, as well as the 300/300B II and 500/500B II.

From strength to strength, Nanlite shifted its focus to innovation and modification as opposed to a brand-new product. The latest iterations feature an ultracompact body, full compatibility with the Bowens mount accessories and benefit from improved noise levels. The cooling system operates in four modes: Smart, Full Speed, Low Speed and Off.

Special effects and flexibility are unlimited via onboard 2.4G Bluetooth and use of the Nanlink App. If you’re looking for more complex lighting control, wired DMX / RDM can achieve this in groups.

The Forza 60 II, 60B II, 300/300B II and 500/500B II tackle a plethora of shooting scenarios with dual batteries. All units support single battery power operation for fast power switching when in low battery. Innovation enables hot plugging as well as hot swapping between AC/DC for Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II and interruption-free operation.

Forza 60/60B II additional features:

  • Small and compact with stunning output packed inside, illuminance level stands at 3,420lux/2,096lux@1m with light only
