Powerful Daylight LED Monolight

Nanlite has upped the ante with the Forza 500 II Daylight LED Monolight, boasting the same powerful output and compact form of the original Forza 500. With a daylight-balanced colour temperature of 5600K with green-magenta shift by +/- 80, you can dim the spotlight from 0 to 100% in 0.1% increments to get the exact intensity you need for your video and photo productions. Blend in with any ambient light situation, match other fixtures, or get creative with it. This light comes with a 55° reflector, Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz for wireless control, DMX/RDM capability, and four fan modes for speed adjustments or total silence. The redesigned control unit offers power options, as the light can be powered by AC or optional V-mount batteries.

The Forza 500 II ships with an upgraded curved yoke that allows 360° rotation for a greater tilting range when used with optional large modifiers. Its base is compatible with both 5/8" baby pins and 1-1/8" junior pins and the light's Bowens mount works with a vast number of light modifiers. The light is ready for worldwide use thanks to its 110 to 240 VAC power supply, but it can also run on optional side-mounted 26V/14.8V V-mount batteries in situations where AC current is unavailable. A padded carry bag is supplied for protection during storage and transport.

Special Effects

The light offers 11 built-in customizable effects that can be saved as presets using the free NANLINK app.

Green-Magenta Adjustment

In shooting situations where you need to match other light sources or achieve a specific look, it can be extremely helpful to adjust the green-to-magenta shift for colour correction. The Forza 500 II allows you to tweak the colour by +/- 80 to get there. This ability is made possible by the light's LED source.

Four Fan Modes

Four fan modes enhance speed control according to your needs. The fan can also be turned off completely when absolute silence is needed.

  • Smart, Full Speed, Low Speed & Off modes
  • 15% maximum output when turned off

Control Unit & Battery Power

Optimized for use in the studio or on location, the light's control unit is equipped with easy-access side battery plates that accommodate V-mount batteries. The Forza 500 II runs on 26V/14.8V V-mount batteries or AC power for easy operation in any location regardless of power availability.

  • Fanless control unit
  • Control unit's lock button prevents accidental setting changes
  • Includes 19.8' power cable and 9.8' head cable
  • A robust quick release clamp is included for mounting the control unit
  • The versatile clamp is compatible with round or square stands and trusses

Onboard, DMX & App Control

The control unit features a convenient OLED display plus onboard buttons and knobs for precise and easy local control, but the light can also be controlled remotely.

  • From your smartphone via Bluetooth with the free NANLINK app for iOS and Android
  • Built-in 2.4 GHz lets you use the separately available WS-RC-C2 handheld remote control or the WS-TB-1 transmitter box for larger setups
  • Locking DMX/RDM ports facilitate advanced control and enable the light to be quickly adopted into any DMX controlled environment

Multiple Mounting Possibilities

The light has a curved rotating yoke with a one-sided lock and forward articulation. It allows 360° rotation to provide a greater tilting range with optional large modifiers. It also features an incorporated umbrella holder to expand your light-shaping options. Additionally, the light's Bowens mount capability makes the Forza 500 II compatible with a wide range of modifiers.

  • Fully dimmable from 0 to 100%
