Introducing the Nanlite FS-300B monolight

Jun 27, 2022

Nanlite has announced the FS-300B as the latest addition to the growing FS range. Offering bi-colour operation, it is ideal for shooting applications that have a diversified requirement for colour temperature


  • Bi-colour monolight with wide CCT range of 2700K to 6500K
  • Outputs 11,130 lux @1M (light only, 5600K) and 38,720 lux @1M (with reflector, 5600K)
  • High colour fidelity with average CRI of 96 and average TLCI of 97

Nanlite continue to expand its range of studio-based LEDs with the release of the FS-300B bi-colour monolight, offering more flexibility while choosing the right CCT (Correlated Colour Temperature) for motion, stills and live productions. As with all Nanlite fixtures the light features outstanding illuminance levels, excellent bi-colour performance, and seamless software/hardware integration. It comfortably manages to find its place in the market against the competition, with such specialisation and a competitive price. 

The FS-300B’s performance is stunning with its professional COB integration. It provides a powerful illuminance of 11,130 lux @ 1M (5600K), which has a significant advantage compared with similar products in the market. when attached with the included reflector, the illuminance increases to 38,720 lux @ 1M (5600K).

FS-300B offers consistent output while changing the CCT range all the way from 2700K to 6500K when in the constant output mode, while in the maximum output mode priority is given to the brightness to ensure sufficient brightness. This professional feature will save time for repeated lighting adjustments during shoots and ensure smooth transitions in camera.

Colour quality is in line with other Nanlite fixtures with an average CRI of 96 and average TLCI of 97, ensuring the FS-300B will allow creators to capture things in life like colours with high fidelity and natural likeness.

FS-300B has 12 built in practical effects that can be adjusted by brightness, colour temperature and speed. This allows the FS-300B to be used in a huge range of scenarios to simulate advanced lighting effects with simple operations, bringing a satisfactory lighting effect experience to users.

Aesthetics have been highlighted in the design of FS-300B, an all-in-one structure, two knobs and one button user interface as well as an OLED display providing convenient and intuitive operation. It also incorporates shortcuts for presets to simplify controlling processes by quickly recalling settings.

The built-in Bluetooth and 2.4G module support wireless controller (optional) and Nanlink APP control, which enable you to adjust various settings including DIM, CCT and special effects at will. With the help of NANLINK app, FS-300B can be combined with other FS-300B’s for multiple unit control for professional applications. 

Adopting the popular design of the widely available Bowens Mount and umbrella holder, FS-300B is compatible with both native and third-party modifiers, providing a wealth of light control options for photography, live streaming, and content creation.

The powerful cooling fan ensures FS-300B can stand up to the rigorous and prolonged field use and guarantee its service life. The fan can be turned off directly to eliminate noise interference on occasions with strict requirements for sound.

*The maximum output power is 25% when the fan is turned off.

The built-in USB-A port supports firmware updates, and optimises users’ experience continuously, with future software updates and new functionalities.
