       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

      Pesi, the February 2012 issue of Videomaker magazine has some good information in its lighting buyer’s guide athttp://www.videomaker.com/article/15328/

      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.
