Prolycht Orion 300 FS Light - New Firmware V2 and Black Friday Offer

Prolycht Orion 300 FS is an RGBACL full-color LED light fixture that offers a light temperature from 2.000K to 20.000K, hundreds of Lee/Rosco filter colors, and quite impressive 31.090lux output at 1m (3.2ft). The light just got a firmware update v2.02.09 that improves color accuracy at low intensity, adjusts the sensitivity of the selection knob, and more. For Black Friday, the company will also be offering a free third Orion 300 FS for every purchase of two lamps.

Back in June 2021, we wrote about a relatively young Chinese lighting company called Prolycht which debuted with an RGBACL full-color LED light called Orion 300 FS. The RGBCAL means that the fixture includes six different types of LED chips: Red, Green, Blue, Amber, Cyan, and Lime. This helps with fine-tuning the small ranges within the available light spectrum. Now, the Prolycht Orion 300 FS light got a firmware update V2.02.09 and the company also published this year’s Black Friday deals. Let’s take a look at the details.

Prolycht Orion 300 FS firmware v2.02.09

The new firmware v2.02.09 is based on user feedback and in continual development according to Prolycht. It adds the following features:

  • adjusted sensitivity of the selection knob
  • improved color accuracy at low intensity
  • adjusted fan speed to reduce fan noise
  • improved real-time self-calibration
  • smoothed color tuning control when using third party apps such as Blackout and Luminaire 3
  • improved DMX settings can now be adjusted on ballast when fixture remote connected via DMX
  • reduced delay when running multiple fixtures by app
  • improved battery power management

The firmware update is available on the Prolycht website.

Black Friday 3-for-2 offer

For this year’s Black Friday, Prolycht decided to roll out with a 3-for-2 offer on the Orion 300 FS. As the name already implies, this means that buying two fixtures, will get you a third one for free. The offer is valid from Friday, November 26th through Friday, December 3rd.

This actually makes sense as having three lights in a kit makes for a solid three-point interview lighting setup. Prolycht also offers a variety of light modifiers for the lamp – including Lantern Softbox, Dome Softbox, and 2x Fresnel. Having the “industry-standard” Bowens Mount in the front, of course, allows you to mount any compatible light modifier.

Price and availability

The Prolycht Orion 300 FS has been available for a while now and the price has been set to $2.150 (around €1.900 plus VAT in Europe) so that means during the Black Friday offer, you will get three lights for $4.300. The light comes in either V-Mount or Gold Mount version. The standard package includes the lamp head, ballast, power cords, the standard reflector, a security cable, and a carrying case.

As I mentioned above, Prolycht also offers a comprehensive range of modifiers, including a 2x Fresnel lens ($320), projection lens with gobos ($350), dome softbox ($190), lantern softbox ($90), barn doors, and reflector.
