The Godox SL300II Bi light is similar in many ways to the standard version, including dimming capabilities from 0-100%, maximum power of 320 watts, and a high color rendering of 96 CRI and 97 TLCI. There's also a built-in fan to keep things cool and a Bowens S-mount for all sorts of accessories. 

What the new version adds is a bi-color COB LED feature, giving cinematographers and content creators more options. Let's dig in a bit deeper to see if this is something you want to add to your toolkit. 

Daylight, Nightlight

While the output of the Godox SL300II Bi is less than its daylight-balanced sibling, creatives will still get 44900 lux with a reflector at 3200K (at around 3 feet or 1 meter). Even though the standard version will get more than double that at 99300 lux, you get a color temperature range of 2800K to 6500K with the new release. 

Both Godox SL300II lights can be controlled by an RC-A6 remote, but neither has a smartphone option, which in 2022 seems like a letdown. You also can also turn off the built-in fan, although there will be a reduction of 20% in light output.

The Godox SL300II Bi is slightly larger than the daylight-balanced version and is priced higher at $589. It features a silent mode, 8/9 FX Effects, and comes with the body, power cord, lamp cover, and reflector.
