With an output of 23,130 lux at 5600K from one metre, the 150B has a CCT range of 2700K-6500K.
It can be used for lighting on-the-move, as a uniform light for use in live streaming, for lighting interviews or when working in small spaces.

Wireless & app operation
The all-in-one Forza 150B is constructed of durable metal and carbon-fibre making it both lightweight and sturdy.
It has a two knob and one button user interface for straightforward, intuitive operation.
For wireless lighting operation the 150B features Bluetooth and 2.4G, allowing for connection to the Nanlink app for more controllability.
There is also DMX/RDM compatibility via an additional 3.5mm wired connection cable.
In addition to power options via the standard AC adapter, the optional hand-held V-mount battery grip can also provide stable power supply.
