The Nanlite Forza 500B II Bi-Color LED Spotlight provides all of the outstanding benefits of the Forza 500 II—like the lightweight and compact head, redesigned Control Unit, and exceptionally powerful output—and also has the versatility of an adjustable CCT range of 2700K–6500K. It was built for professional production with durable construction, control options for Bluetooth, 2.4G, and DMX/RDM, and a protected, frosted-glass covered COB. The upgraded Control Unit can run efficiently on AC or side-mounted 26V or 14.4V-14.8V V-Mount batteries (sold separately). You can have complete confidence in its performance as the 500B II provides highly color-accurate light, and it also gives you 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. The Control Unit is strikingly compact and operates without a fan. Dimming is adjusted in 0.1% increments to fine-tune the intensity. The included cables are generous in length: 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 500B 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 substantially increases the output. The yoke allows 360° rotation, it's curved to provide a greater tilting range with large modifiers, it features a stepless, one-sided lock for easy positioning, an umbrella mount for more light-shaping options, and the base is compatible with both 5/8'' baby pins and 1 1/8'' junior pins. The fan 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. Compact Powerhouse 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 500B II provides an impressive amount of output from a strikingly compact and lightweight head. Trust What You See Nanlite users praise the beautiful quality of light our fixtures produce first and foremost. Light from the Forza 500B II doesn't just look good—it's accurate. You won't waste time in post-production trying to fix color issues. App and DMX Control You can fully control Forza 300 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. G/M Adjustment In shooting situations where you need to mix light from the 500B 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 color to get there. It's unusual for a bi-color fixture to have G/M adjustment, but you get it in the Forza 500B II. Improvements All Around 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. T

he 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 and a Lock button to prevent unwanted changes to settings. There are 12 built-in effects that can be customized and saved as presets in the NANLINK app. Decades of Focus 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 500B II.
