I am interested in figuring out how to mount a good LED light source into Elinchrom light modifiers to get a continuous light source without generating too much heat.
The Rotalux deep octa instructions ask you to limit your modeling lights to 300 Watts, presumably to keep down the heat.
So LED lights will give the most light per Watt. I have seen 50 Watt LED bulbs which claim to produce as much light as a 350 Watt tungsten bulb. There are LED bulbs with reasonably high CRI numbers.
I am open to any purpose-built photographic lights as well as any reasonable DIY solutions.
And just to head off the side-tracking conversations , yes, I do know the advantages of using strobes over continuous lights and yes, I use strobes regularly and will continue to do so. This is about adding capability.
