The Forza 500 LED from Nanlite is a monolight style light fixture with remarkable light output relative to its size. Weighing only 5.95 lbs, the Forza 500 employs a COB LED module to output 20070 Lux of 5600K daylight-balanced light at 1 meter using just the bare bulb without a reflector — all while maintaining a high CRI/TLCI of 98/95, ensuring accurate color rendition.

Color Perfection
The brightness of a light is important, but without color accuracy, a ton of time and money will be lost in post-production. The Forza 500 features a CRI of 98 and a TLCI of 95 meaning you can shoot with confidence knowing the color reproduction will be precise.

Bowens Style Light Modifier Mount
By utilizing the near-universal Bowens style light modifier mount, the Forza 500 is compatible with a massive selection of light modifiers. Including, but not limited to Nanlite's line of fresnel, softboxes and umbrellas.

Practical Effects
With pre-programmed special effects in a simple-to-master menu system, the Forza 500 makes it easy to imitate lighting scenarios that can otherwise be tricky to recreate. At the touch of a button you can simulate the lighting effects of lightning, a TV screen, a flash, and a malfunctioning light bulb (or Bad Bulb).

Satellite Control and Power Station
To keep a low center of gravity and the controls easily accessible the Forza 500's control panel, AC adapter, and battery plate have been combined into one satellite unit easily hung from any light stand. The satellite also serves as the DMX connection point enabling the Forza 500 to be quickly added to any DMX-controlled environment.

Power Anywhere
Perfect for use in the studio or on location, the Forza 500 can run off either the included AC adapter or 2x 26V V-Mount batteries (Not Included) so you can operate in any location regardless of power availability.

Studio and Location Ready
Supplied with a standard 5/8" receiver mount, the Forza 500 can be attached directly on any standard light stand, and the 360-degree rotating yolk makes it easy to adjust any angle or hang the light from a ceiling for studio use. Also thanks to the Forza 500's active, silent fan it is at home in even the most sound-sensitive situations.
