Creative updates from Nanlite


Nanlite releases a massive update on their most popular series, PavoTube and Forza.


Over the past year, Nanlite has participated in several industry trade shows and listened to feedback from commercial production teams, film crews and photographers all around the globe. All of this has resulted in several upgrades to their most popular products.


PavoTube II

15C/30C utilize RGBWW color mixing technology with excellent color rendition and accurate color reproduction. They get a wider CCT range of 2700-7500K with G/M±150 adjustment that allows for more comprehensive lighting options during different times of the day, making it easier to shoot photos and videos in varied environments.


The two tubes boost a more powerful output compared with the previous versions—although they come in almost the same dimensions. PavoTube II 15C and PavoTube II 30C are 10% and 20% brighter respectively. On-board control of PavoTube II 15C/30C has also been optimized with a much more intuitive two-knob operation and the tubes now allows for PD3.0 charging, power supplying and firmware updating via the USB Type-C port.




The Forza 60/60B II pack stunning output inside ultracompact bodies just as its predecessor did, illuminance levels stand at 3,420lux/2,096lux@1m with light only.


Forza 60B II features two output modes: the conventional maximum output mode and the more novel constant output mode for small LEDs. Relatively stable intensity is permitted when switched to constant output mode. Noise management has been improved for the lights to stand out from competitors by lowering noise level to 20dbA.


All innovations and improvements applied in the 60W range have been also integrated in the new Forza 300W and 500W.


The Forza II series incorporates a new adjustable cooling system with 4 operation modes available: Smart, Full speed, Low speed and Off. Noise level lowers to 23dBA in Smart mode. Noise management is also greatly optimized over the last generation in Full speed mode. There will be no noise interference concerns for sound-sensitive shooting environments, such as interviews.


Color rendering capabilities of the Forza 300/300B II & 500/500B II have been improved in a comprehensive manner making them a reliable additions to filmmakers’ toolkit. The Forza 300/500 II produces a CRI/TLCI of 96/97 and a average CRI/TLCI 96/97 for Forza 300B/500B II.


The control box features a new compact concept with the power adapter incorporated inside, reducing the overall control unit size of Forza 300/300B II by 37% and Forza 500/500B II by 16%. V-mount battery plates on both sides, curved yoke with one-sided locking mechanism and integrated quick-release device all provide more convenience on set.


Both Pavotube and the new Forza features comprehensive controlling methods, including on-board, 2.4G, Bluetooth, DMX/RDM and via the Nanlink app.
