Plus with dimming from 100% down to 1% you can quickly adapt the Forza 500 to any scene. *approximate Lux reading, actual value was over the meter's range*
Lightweight Compact Design
Created to eliminate the difficulties of traveling with large light fixtures the Forza 500 weights only 5.7lbs and is compact enough to be easily packed into most gear cases.
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 softboxes and umbrellas
With pre-programmed special effects in a simple-to-master menu system, the Forza 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.
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 quick adoption to any DMX controlled environment.
Perfect for use in the studio or on location, the Forza 500 can run off either the included AC adapter or 2x 26w 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 mounted directly on any standard light stand, and the 330-degree rotating yolk makes it easy to adjust an angle or hang the light from a ceiling for studio use. Also thanks to the Forza500's active, silent fan it is at home in even the most sound-sensitive situations.
