The Nanlite Forza 300B II Bi-colour LED Spotlight excels at being as compact and lightweight as possible—yet capable of delivering a truly impressive amount of output (68060 Lux, 6323 fc at 1 meter 5600K with included reflector). It was built for professional production with a versatile CCT range of 2700K–6500K, durable construction, control options for Bluetooth, 2.4G, and DMX/RDM, a protected, frosted-glass covered COB, and a fully redesigned yoke and Control Unit with the ability to efficiently run on AC or side-mounted V-Mount batteries (sold separately). You can have complete confidence in its performance as the 300B II has a highly accurate CRI average of 96 and a TLCI of 97. It's also the world's first 300-watt bi-colour spotlight with the ability to adjust the green-to-magenta shift by +/- 80, which is made possible by its WW(RG) LED source and light-mixing chamber.
This is the second-generation of this fixture and it features improvements across the board, such as an 11% increase in brightness, a Control Unit that's 37% smaller, fanless, and can run on a single V-Mount battery, and it gets 30% more battery life (batteries sold separately). The included cables are substantially longer: 19.8 feet (6 m) for the power cable, 9.8 feet (3 m) for the head cable, and considerably longer head cables are available separately. Forza 300B II is compatible with a vast number of Bowens Mount light modifiers, including Nanlite's own offerings. A useful 55° reflector is included, and there are numerous other modifiers available, such as the FL-20G Fresnel with metal barn doors (sold separately), which increases the output to 151000 Lux, 14028.3 fc at 1 meter.
The upgraded yoke allows 360° rotation and is curved to provide a greater tilting range with large modifiers. It features a stepless, one-sided lock for easy positioning, and an umbrella mount for more light-shaping options. The fan in the head is 9 dBA quieter than the previous model and has 4 modes: Smart, Full Speed, Low Speed, and Off for absolute silence. A redesigned padded carrying case with improved cushioning safely holds everything. A USB port allows firmware updates which will add new features in the future, and it can supply power to wireless DMX receivers (sold separately) or other devices.
Forza instruments provide the highest quality of light while being as compact and lightweight as possible. Every aspect of their design is intentional, like the rectangular shape of the heads and Control Units, which can be stacked when setting up, breaking down, or storing. Forza 300B II provides an impressive amount of versatile bi-colour output with compact components and a head that weighs only 6.3 lbs (2.9 kg) and is a mere 12.9 x 8.9 x 4.8" in size.
Nanlite users praise the beautiful quality of light our fixtures produce first and foremost. Light from the Forza 300B II doesn't just look good—it's accurate. With an average CRI of 96 and an average TLCI of 97, you won't waste time in post-production trying to fix colour issues.
You can fully control Forza 300B II with your phone through Bluetooth with the free NANLINK app for iOS and Android. The Control Unit features locking DMX/RDM in and out ports for advanced control. Built-in 2.4G lets you use the WS-RC-C2 Remote Control (sold separately) or the WS-TB-1 Transmitter Box (sold separately) for larger setups.
In shooting situations where you need to mix light from the 300B II with ambient light or other fixtures, it can be extremely helpful to adjust the green-to-magenta shift to match the other light sources. This feature is also useful when you're trying to achieve a specific look and need to tweak the colour to get there. It's uncommon for a bi-colour fixture to have green/magenta shift, but you get it in the Forza 300B II.
The Control Unit has easy-to-access battery plates on the sides that accommodate various sized batteries. All cables attach to the top of the Control Unit so the flat base can rest on surfaces when in use. The included quick-release clamp is durably built, easy to operate, and works with round or square stands and trusses. It has an easy-to-read OLED screen, intuitive on-board controls, a Lock button to prevent unwanted changes, and quickly pressing the right knob lets you cycle through popular CCT settings (3200K, 5600K, etc.). There are 12 built-in effects that can be customised and saved as presets in the NANLINK app.
This is the second generation of this popular instrument with refinements and upgrades that make it better than ever. It's made by a company that's been focused on manufacturing LED lights for video production and photography for over 30 years, and all of this experience is evident in the Forza 300B II.
