Chinese manufacturer Nanguang has introduced the Nanlite FS200, a ‘more affordable version’ of their Forza 200 LED monolight.
To keep costs down, the FS200 is mains-powered only and does not have DMX control. It’s aimed at ‘studio-based’ stills and video shooters.
Otherwise it is a similar basic design to the Forza 200: a Bowens-mount monolight-style head with a yoke mount and a grab handle on the back. The LED itself has been changed from a single chip to a matrix-style array. This allows the manufacturer to offer this lower-tier lamp at half the price of the equivalent Forza model.
More budget-focussed FS-series lights will follow.
Pre-order the Nanlite FS200 for $369 from B&H.
