The Godox SZ150R is a 150W Bi-Color Zoomable RGB COB LED light. This light was teased in late December last year and it is now available to purchase.
We have started to see quite a few manufacturers make versatile COB spot light solutions in various forms. A lot of users are now looking for multi versatile lighting solutions that can create both hard and soft light.
CCT Range/HSI/ +/- GM
Despite having RGB capabilities, the CCT range is limited from 2800K to 6500K. The light also has an HSI mode as well as offering +/- GM adjustment.
There is also a FX mode that allows you to create numerous different effects.
Adjustable Beam Angle
You can change the beam angle from 20° to 65°.
The light features a Bowens mount so a large array of affordable, existing light modifiers can be used.
This increases the versatility of how you can use the fixture.
The light features an in-built fan, but it can be turned off. According to Godox, the SZ150R has a Silent Mode Option that allows the light to run without generating any noise. It would be interesting to see how this works and for how long as COB lights get very hot and need to be cooled.
As far as control options go, the SZ150R can be operated via an app, through the onboard controls, via DMX, or through an optional remote controller.
The rear LCD screen on the light looks very similar to the PROLYCHT Orion 300 and ARRI Orbiter.
Above you can see how to operate the light.
Like a lot of today’s modern LED lights the Godox SZ150R can be firmware updated through the USB input.
