Adopting a popular, easy-to-use form factor, the Forza 300B Bi-Color LED Monolight from Nanlite has a generous variable color temperature range of 2700 to 6500K to blend seamlessly into any ambient light situation, match other fixtures, or allow creative expression. The Forza 300B is dimmable too, without color shift as the light's high CRI/TLCI ratings of 95/98 affirm. While you can make adjustments to color and light intensity locally on the fixture, you can also make them remotely from a console via DMX, or wirelessly using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or with the included remote control.
There are 12 special effects including CCT Loop, INT Loop, Flash, Pulse, Storm, TV, Paparazzi, Candle/Fire, Bad Bulb, Fireworks, Explosion, and Welding. The 300B is ready for worldwide use thanks to its 100 to 240V power supply but you can also run it at full power for 49 minutes using two V-mount batteries when AC power is unavailable.
With the included reflector, the Forza 300B outputs an impressive 37,440 Lux at 3.28'. When equipped with the optional FL-20G Fresnel, the light output climbs to a staggering 140,000 Lux at 3.28'. Plus, with dimming from 100% to 0%, you can quickly adapt the Forza 300B to any scene without adding ND filters or diffusion.
The Forza 300B employs a COB LED module with a variable color temperature range from 2700 to 6500K, so you can quickly match natural ambient or artificial lighting situations with a twist of the dial and eliminate the need for gels.
Created to eliminate the difficulties of traveling with large light fixtures, the Forza 300B weighs just 11 lb (5 lb for the head, 6 lb for the controller and power supply) and is compact enough to be packed into most gear cases.
The brightness of a light is important, but without color accuracy, you will end up spending a ton of time and money in post-production. The Forza 300B features a CRI of 96 and a TLCI of 98, meaning you can shoot confidently knowing the color reproduction will be precise.
By utilizing the near-universal Bowens style light modifier mount and incorporating an umbrella holder into the yolk, the Forza 300B is compatible with a massive selection of light modifiers, including, but not limited to, Nanlite's line of Fresnels, softboxes, and umbrellas.
With 12 pre-programmed special effects in a simple-to-master menu system, the Forza 300B makes it easy to imitate lighting scenarios that can otherwise be tricky to recreate. Effects include CCT Loop, INT Loop, Flash, Pulse, Storm, TV, Paparazzi, Candle/Fire, Bad Bulb, Firework, Explosion, and Welding.
To keep a low center of gravity and the controls easily accessible, the Forza 300B's control panel, AC adapter, and battery plate have been combined into one satellite unit that can be conveniently hung from any light stand. The satellite also serves as the DMX/RDM connection point enabling the Forza 300 to be quickly adopted into any DMX controlled environment.
Optimized for use in the studio or on location, the Forza 300B can run off either the included AC adapter or two 14.8V V-mount batteries (not included), so you can operate in any location regardless of power availability.
Supplied with a standard 5/8" receiver mount, the Forza 300B can be mounted directly onto any standard light stand, and the 360° rotating yolk makes it easy to adjust any angle or even hang the light from a ceiling for studio use.
