Building upon more than 30 years in the industry, the Dyno 650C and 1200C are Nanlux’s most powerful RGBWW LED Lights to date.

Developed specifically for movie, television and media production applications, Nanlux is positioning both lights as more affordable solutions when compared to similar lights from manufacturers such as ARRI.

As a comparison, Nanlux claims that the Dyno 650C outputs almost twice as much light as ARRI’s SkyPanel S60-C with the 1200C output coming in at around 14% less than ARRI’s SkyPanel S360-C.

Because of this, both lights should not only appeal to higher-end cine rental houses, but also to production companies who are looking for more affordable lighting options to purchase outright.

Both are high output RGBWW LED soft panel lights that come packed with the kind of premium features you would find on other lights in this class.

Power wise, the 650C outputs 650W (nominal)/700W (max) with the larger 1200C outputting 1200W (nominal)/1400W (max).

Size and Weight

The 650C features a 2×1 shape (857 x 173 x 630mm / 33.74″ x 6.81″ x 24.80″), while the larger, more powerful, 1200C features a 3×3 shape (1023 x 173 x 918mm / 40.28″ x 6.81″ x 36.14″).

The 650C light panel weighs a hefty 15.8kg (34.8lbs) on it’s own, but tops out at 21.8kg (almost 50lbs) when you add the power adapter diffuser.

The 1200C isn’t exactly lightweight either, with the light panel alone weighs more than the 650C (with power and diffuser attached) at 26.2kg (57.8lbs). When you add the power adapter and diffuser, the 1200C tips the scales at 36.7kg (just over 80lbs).
