Nanlux has announced two new RGBWW LED lights, the Dyno 650C and Dyno 1200C.
The Dyno 650C and the Dyno 1200C are very large fixtures that are designed to be more affordable solutions than other larger RGB soft light fixtures such as the ARRI S120-C and ARRI S360-C.
Who is Nanlux?
Nanlux is a new brand from a Chinese lighting company called Nanguang. Nanguang has been around for 30 years and they also own both Nanlite and Ledgo.
The Dyno 1200C RGBWW Panel is a 36.6 x 36 x 6.4″ panel with a wide beam angle of 160 degrees. It has a Kelvin color temperature range of 2700 to 20000K.
Nanlux claims that the Dyno 1200C can output 5596lx at a distance of 3m (9.84ft) in a Boost mode. We reached out and Nanlux confirmed that the measurements were all taken with the diffusion panel attached.
As a comparison, the ARRI SkyPanel S360-C is claimed to output 5633lx (at 3200K) and 5133lx (at 5600K) at the same distance.
To generate that much output the light draws 1200W (nominal and 1400W (Max). Nanlux claims that the light has a CRI of 95.
The housing of the light is made out of aluminum and the fully adjustable yolk features a junior pin. The light weighs a whopping 26.2kg ‘57.8lb) and the separate power supply tips the scales at 7.5kg (16.5lb). The standard diffusion panel that you see in front of the light weighs an additional 3kg (6.6lb). The light does have a fan to keep it cool.
The Dyno 1200C features a 4.3″ LCD screen, 8 shortcut keys, and 3 main control knobs.
The light can be controlled via 5-pin DMX or an optional wired NANLINK controller. The fixture also has built-in Bluetooth and 2.4Ghz Wi-fi. It is also compatible with Lumenradio.
There are 15 pre-programmed special effects you can also choose from. There is also an on-board gel library.
The Dyno 650C has all of the same features as the 1200C, but in a smaller form factor.
It has physical dimensions of 33.74 x 6.81 x 24.80″.
Nanlux claims that the Dyno 650C can output 2649lx at a distance of 3m (9.84ft) in Boost mode with the diffusion panel. As a comparison, the ARRI SkyPanel S120-C is claimed to output 1367x (at 3200K) and 1244lx (at 5600K) at the same distance.
It draws 650W (Nominal) and 700W (Maximum). It has the same 160-degree beam angle as the larger 1200C.
The housing of the light is made out of aluminum and the fully adjustable yolk features a junior pin. The light weighs 15.8kg (34.8lb) and the separate power supply tips the scales at 4.2kg (9.3lb). The standard diffuser panel that you see in front of the light weighs an additional 1.8kg (4.0lb). The light does have a fan to keep it cool.
