The Nanlite FS-60B is a small-location light with all the features of the standard-sized units packed down into a small form factor. While the size is small at 247 × 134 × 87mm and weighing in at 0.85kg, the performance is big with a power rating of 70W and an adjustable CCT of between 2700K-6500K.
This makes the small light directly comparable with models double the size. Moreover, as this light is from Nanlite, colour accuracy is a paramount feature, which means that this is an ideal solution for anyone using the light to capture colour-critical content. The LED, while being adjustable, enables a CRI that averages 96% and TLCI that averages 97% with the full dimming ability through the range.
Control of the Nanlite FS-60B comes through a neat panel on the back of the unit that clearly shows your settings and adjustments. What’s nice about the Nanlite FS-60B and what makes this unit stand out against other similar products is the inclusion of a 2.4G Bluetooth connection. This connection enables you to connect to the app and control all settings remotely.
While this type of light has traditionally been used for video, the Nanlite FS-60B incorporates enough power to be used successfully for photography. As standard, the lamp comes with a Bowens adapter, and Nanlite produces a huge range of lighting modifiers that will enable photographers and videographers to manipulate the light in the way they need for their shoots.
One of the features that many videographers can make use of is video lighting effects. These are quickly selectable and enable the light to mimic real-life lighting situations such as CCT Loop, INT Loop, Flash, Pulse, Storm, TV, Paparazzi, Candle/Fire, Bad Bulb, Firework, Explosion and Welding.
For such a small light, there’s a lot on offer.
