The Forza 150 LED from Nanlite is a monolight-style fixture that is strikingly compact and lightweight considering the powerful light output it provides. Weighing only 3 lbs, the Forza 150 employs a glass-covered COB LED module to output 27,960 Lux (2,587.5 fc) of 5600K daylight-balanced light at 1 meter with the included reflector. Like all Nanlite fixtures, the Forza 150 maintains high CRI and TLCI ratings (96 and 98), ensuring accurate colour rendition. Even though it’s as compact as possible, the Forza 150 provides an input for DMX/RDM control, several on-board controls, 2.4GHz for use with remote controls, and Bluetooth for the Nanlink mobile app. Included is a Bowens-mount adapter with a built-in umbrella mount, travel case, reflector, and an AC adapter with a V-Mount battery mounting slot.
Compact with Lots of Punch
The Forza 150 is similar in many ways to the popular Forza 60 LED monolight, except that it delivers twice as much light output, and it has an even quieter fan. When you don’t need that much power, the Forza 150 can be dimmed from 0 to 100% and every step in-between. When you do need more light, the separately available FL-11 fresnel lens increases the output to a formidable 69,200 Lux (6,429 fc).
Do More with the FM Mount
One of the reasons the Forza 150 can be so compact and lightweight is that it has the Nanlite FM Mount. A wide range of dedicated light modifiers are available for this mount, such as multiple types of softboxes and projection attachments. A Bowens-mount adapter that fits inside the travel case is included so you can utilise a vast number of light-shaping tools with the Forza 150, while still reaping the weight and space-saving benefits of having the considerably smaller FM Mount. Changing modifiers is as easy as pressing a button and twisting a quarter turn.
Get Creative with 11 Effects
Not only is the Forza 150 bright, compact, and lightweight, it’s also got some above-average capabilities. On board are 11 practical effects: Flash, Pulse, Storm, TV, Paparazzi, Candle/Fire, Bad Bulb, Firework, Explosion, INT Loop, and Welding. Plus, an integrated USB port lets you easily add future firmware updates.
Many Options for Power
Optimized for use in the studio or on location, the Forza 150 can run off either the included AC adapter or a 14.8w or a 26V V-Mount battery (Not Included), so you can operate in any location regardless of power availability. A V-Mount battery mounting slot is provided on the AC adapter, and a locking 4-pin XLR power connector on the fixture helps you avoid unintentional disconnections.
Always colour Accurate
Power and portability are excellent qualities to have, but if your light isn’t reliably accurate you will have lots of problems with your footage and images in post production. The Forza 150 features a CRI of 96 and a TLCI of 98, meaning you can always shoot with confidence knowing the colour reproduction will be precise.
Light Stand and Sound Friendly
Supplied with a standard 5/8"" receiver mount, the Forza 150 can be mounted directly on any standard light stand, and the one-sided yoke makes easy to angle and stay locked in the perfect position. The active, silent fan on the Forza 150 keeps the light running cool and won’t interfere with your audio when using microphones on quiet sets.
