 I have a 1000 watt Tungsten halogen light in a softbox which I am looking to upgrade to LED lighting (cooler & cheaper to run) - can anyone give me advice on what LED specs I should be looking for to get a similar output (I have no idea of how many lumens the current light puts out). Any guidance would be most welcome..

Thanks,

Pesi

A good set of HMI lights are not very expensive and run cool. I have both florescent and HMI and I prefer the HMI's Just my two cents.
