Nanlux Evoke 1200 Released – A Very Powerful LED Light


Nanlux has just introduced quite a beast of an LED light, the Nanlux Evoke 1200, and yes, the 1200 actually stands for 1.2kW. This fixture is meant to compete with traditional 1.8K PARs and 2.5k HMI fixtures, but in a much more compact form factor. So let’s take a close look, but don’t forget your sunglasses!

This new Nanlux Evoke 1200 light is indeed a rather large light when compared to smaller units from Nanlux’s sister brand Nanlite, such as the Nanlite Forza 500 (reviewed here). But of course, the Evoke 1200 is still much smaller than a traditional HMI fixture.

Nanlux Evoke 1200

The Nanlux Evoke 1200 is a 1200W LED fixture with a so-called COB (chip on board) design. Other popular lights that use this approach include the Light Storm series from Aputure, Godox, or those from Nanlux’s sister brand Nanlite. The Evoke 1200 does not use a Bowens mount to attach accessories to it, but instead uses a proprietary mount, namely an NL mount.

The bare light itself offers a beam angle of 120°, but this can be modified, for example, by the optional Fresnel lens.

Although RGBW fixtures are very popular these days, the Nanlux Evoke 1200 is only available in either pure daylight (5600K) or tungsten (3200K). With dedicated versions, Nanlux was able to optimize the COB design for each model to get the maximum possible performance.

In addition, the entire unit (including the ballast) is IP54 rated, so light rain should not be a problem.


Since this fixture does not offer a Bowens mount, but one developed in-house by Nanlux, the choice of accessories is somewhat limited, but Nanlux has made sure to offer some accessories from the start:

  • Fresnel Lens (comes with barndors)
  • Square Softbox 100cm
  • Octagonal Softbox 150cm
  • Parobolic Softbox 150cm
  • Lantern Softbox 120cm
