Nanlite Forza 60 II and 60B II

Nanlite’s Forza 60 II sequence updates the road however doesn’t change their small kind issue — the corporate says they’re nonetheless sufficiently small to cover behind an iPhone and lightweight sufficient that they are often dangled from a pinkie finger. Facet by aspect with its predecessor, the 60 II wouldn’t look a lot totally different, however there are modifications on the within.

For instance, the lights nonetheless run on AC with the included compact energy provide, in addition to on NP-F batteries with the included handgrip, or on V-Mount batteries with the individually out there BH-FZ60-V handgrip, or the CB-DT/DC D-Faucet Energy Cable (additionally bought individually), however what’s new is their improved effectivity: the Forza 60 II and 60B II rise up to twenty-eight.5% longer run instances on battery energy.


The lights even have extra management choices (together with built-in Bluetooth and wi-fi 2.4G connectivity), a brand new mode button to enhance onboard management, a brand new fan system that makes them 10 dBA quieter, and so they characteristic a brand new glass-covered protected COB mild.

Nanlite says that final half may not appear vital, however says that if an insect finally ends up touchdown on the COB of those lights after they’re working, the fixture is not going to be broken.

Nanlite Forza 300 II and 300B II

The Forza 300 II sequence characteristic redesigned yokes and locks and the heads are over half an inch longer and wider, however greater than half an inch shorter in top than its predecessor. The management models are additionally “radically totally different.”

The brand new Forza II 300’s produce “extremely correct mild” with excessive CRI and TLCI rankings and embody green-to-magenta adjustment because of what Nanlite says is an progressive and distinctive W(RG) and WW(RG) sources. The 300B II additionally has a lightweight chamber just like the one on the Forza 60C to correctly handle the totally different coloured LEDs.


Of observe, the brand new Forza 300 II and 300B II are what Nanlite is asking the world’s first 300W LED 5600K and bi-color spotlights with +/- 80 green-to-magenta adjustment. Nanlite says that there are 300W lights with green-to-magenta shift on the market, however they’ve full spectrum LEDs that price over twice as a lot, so the corporate considers {that a} separate class of sunshine fixture.

As talked about, the yokes have been redesigned and have new, single-sided, stepless locks that the corporate says make it simple to precisely place and lock the lights in place. The yokes have a ahead curve that permits better tilting vary when massive modifiers are connected and in addition now have umbrella mounts.

The management models for the Forza 300 II sequence are 37% smaller and have built-in energy provides — side-mounted V-Mount battery plates — which are suitable with totally different sized and formed batteries. The models are additionally fanless and all cables connect to the highest. The management models can also function on both one or two batteries.

Lastly, the included cables are longer (head cables are 9.8 toes lengthy and the facility cables are 19.8 toes lengthy), the cooling followers are 9dBA quiter, and simply as is the case with the Forza 60 II fashions, each 300 II lights have protected glass-covered COB mild sources.

Nanlite Forza 500 II and 500B II

Nanlite by no means made a Forza 500 mild, and says that the selection so as to add the “II” to the product identify is as a result of it has the identical developments because the 60 II and 300 II sequence, however is extra highly effective.


The advantages of the five hundred II sequence are much like the 300 II sequence lights and have W(RG) and WW(RG) mild sources, have a lightweight chamber to handle the additional LED colours, and may do +/- 80 green-to-magenta adjustment. Additionally just like the 300 II sequence, the five hundred II sequence have newly designed yokes, stepless locks, and a ahead curve to permit for a better tilting vary when used with massive modifiers. Additionally they have umbrella mounts, runon v-mount batteries, and have protected COBs.


The five hundred II sequence separates from the 300 II sequence in terms of the flexibility to fine-tune dimming in 0.1% increments, a characteristic that was solely discovered within the top-of-the-line Nanlite Forza 720 and 720B lights.

Nanlite PavoTube II 15C and 30C

The Nanlite PavoTube II lights are brighter, however maintain the same kind issue to their predecessors: the 15C II is 48% brighter whereas the 30C II is 42% brighter. Moreover, the inner diffusion on PavoTube II 15C and 30C fully obscures the LEDs, making a singular mild supply and a seamless tube of sunshine.

The brand new variations additionally characteristic smaller endcaps, bigger illumination surfaces, a large green-to-magenta adjustment vary of +/- 150 and an expanded CCT vary of of two,700 to six,500K.

Nanlite PavoTube II 15C and 30C have 15 built-in results (the final model had 5) and the flexibility to create customized results, in addition to a CRI common of 97, TLCI of common 98, TM-30 Rf of common 94, and TM-30 Rg of common 101. Nanlite additionally has simplified the controls: One knob is “Alter,” the opposite knob is “Swap.” One Button is “Mode” the opposite button is “Lock.”
