The Nanlite Forza series is built around reliability and affordability. Two new fixtures have been introduced to the lineup, the Forza 60B bi-color monolight LED and the Forza 200 daylight LED. Their price makes them ideal for filmmakers looking for an inexpensive lighting alternative.

At the heart of the Forza 60B is a COB LED module with variable color temperature range of 2700K to 6500K. The fixture is extremely light, weighing only 1.8 lbs., and it's about the size of a DSLR, allowing it to fit into tight spaces. It's said to output up to 5560 lumens or 13,839 Lux at 1 meter at 5600K. It touts a CRI of 98 and a TLCI of 95, making color accuracy a non-issue. The LED is dimmable from 1-100% and has 12 pre-programmed special effects, as well as a quick change modifier mount. When using the optional FL-11 fresnel, the light output can reach 33,460 Lux at 1 meter making it a pretty punchy light source.

The practical lighting effects are accessible through the interface and include options for CCT Loop, INT Loop, Flash, Pulse, Storm, TV, Paparazzi, Candle/Fire, Bad Bulb, Firework, Explosion, and Welding. The Forza 60B can run off either the included AC adapter, a 14.8W V-mount battery, or two Sony NP-F series batteries via battery grips. The battery grips are sold separately.

The Forza 60B is available for $319. Nanlite also offers a daylight version, the Forza 60 for $216.

Nanlite's Forza 200 is another monolight style LED designed for maximum output. The COB LED module is daylight-balanced and packs 37,540 Lux at 1 meter, while maintaining precise color accuracy. When the optional FL-20G fresnel is added, the light output climbs to 126,413 Lux at 1 meter. Like the Forza 60B, dimming ranges from 1-100%, and the fixture has 11 pre-programmed practical effects with CCT Loop being the odd one out.

The Forza 200 also has a Bowens style modifier to attach different fresnels, softboxes, and umbrellas. It's lightweight as well, clocking in at 8.5 lbs.: 4 lbs. for the head, 4.5 lbs. for the controller. Power options include AC or a 26V V-Mount battery. Alternatively, it can also run off a 14.8V V-Mount with a reduced 120w output. The LED is available for $699.
