The Nanlite FC-500C is an RGBW LED spotlight that provides a significant amount of light output in 36,000 vivid colors and a wide CCT range of 2700K-7500K. A power supply is included to run on a standard AC outlet, and the separately available FC PowerController lets you run in the field. FC-500C has easy-to-use onboard controls, Bluetooth for the free NANLINK app for iOS and Android, 2.4G for more wireless control options, and a locking, metal DMX/RDM port for advanced control. It's covered by a 2-year warranty that extends to 3 years with online registration, and it's stocked, supported, and serviced by our responsive team in the USA.

For output, FC-500C provides 57050 lux (5300 fc) at 1-meter with the included reflector. You can quickly fine-tune the dimming from 0 to 100% in 0.1% increments, and the high SSI ratings of 84 (3200K) and 71 (5600K), and CRI of 95 and TLCI of 94 ensure your colors will always be accurate. It has green-to-magenta adjustment of +/- 150 to blend with other light sources. The included power supply has a strap to be hung on a light stand, and a quick-release plate is provided for using the separately available ASCPQRFZ clamp. A wide range of light modifiers are compatible with its standard Bowens Mount, and an integrated umbrella holder provides more light-shaping options. The FC-500C is powerful, colorful, versatile, accurate, easy to use, and always ready to travel in the included hard-foam case.

This is the brightest Nanlite fixture available with RGB color, so when used on its own, with other Nanlite lights, or with creative tools like the PJ-BM Projection Attachment (sold separately) for making textures and sculpting light, the FC-500C opens up new possibilities for creating realistic motivated light and striking visuals.

A crushproof, shockproof, corrosion-resistant, and form-fitting carrying case is included, so you can safely travel and store when not in use. The FC-500C is AC-powered but you can also shoot on location using V-Mount batteries with the FC PowerController (batteries and FC PowerController sold separately).

The color LEDS on FC-500C make more features possible, like 151 gel presets, HSI Mode, and RGBW Mode where you control red, green, blue, and white separately. You can have confidence in the accuracy of the FC-500C with SSI ratings of 84 (3200K) and 71 (5600K), CRI of 95 and TLCI of 94, and TM-30 of Rf Average 92 and Rg Average 100.

With a 2-inch screen and easy-to-master controls, the FC-500C helps you achieve professional-looking results quickly. Pressing the right knob jumps to popular color temperatures or hues, and pressing the left knob instantly dims to 0.0% and pressing again brings you back to your previous brightness setting. Bluetooth lets you take command with your phone or tablet.

Rapidly adjust the angle of the beam with its 360° rotating yoke and single-sided, stepless lock. Smart fan modes give you total control over on-set sound. It has 15 built-in effects and you can make your own and save them as presets in the app. A USB port allows future firmware updates so new features can be added, and can power external DMX receivers (sold separately).

Like all Nanlite products, the FC-500C is built to high standards and it's the little details, like the glass-protected light source, that make a big difference in long-term reliability. The built-in 2.4G lets you use the WS-RC-C2 Handheld Remote when you'd rather not use your phone to control, and the WS-TB-1 Transmitter Box lets you control larger setups (both sold separately).

One important distinction that makes Nanlite stand out is that we design, build, and test every single light in our own facility. This gives us the best possible control over Quality Assurance. We even make the cardboard boxes our lights come in because we weren't satisfied with the quality of the available options. We're a family-owned business that incorporates environmentally friendly practices into our work, and we're filled with people who are passionate about image making and creativity. Join us!
