Would you be willing to spend $ 800.00?
I'd like to see an LED Source 4. We got a ways to go...
I'd settle for a 50W LED gobo projector that could handle computer generated graphics but not at $800
I'd give it a serious look at that price....
But you are a little light on specifics to commit just yet. And even then, I do not buy until I get my hands on it for a close inspection.
You forget the
little let me see it in my hands first to evaluate it jimmy

Looks like an ETC Source-4 Jr .......
Does it use conventional S-4 lens barrels?
You know.. as i got my start in a theater background.. if 20 years ago someone told me DJ's would be buying Leko's so they could "upsell" showing custom gobo's on a wall.. I would have thought they were crazy..
"● Different Lens Available: 19, 26, 36 and 50 degree"
is their a variable lens available?
Not at this time, but I'm working on it.
Plastic case makes it light, but who knows about durability with a plastic shell. No Zoom. At the same price of a S4 then yes, at double the price, forget it.
YES! Look at it this way...Halogen lights are an endangered species. They're about $14-15 each right now. And they last about 50 hours each if you're lucky. In 3 years, they'll probably be $30.00 each. I buy 10-15 bulbs a year for my 5 S4's. At $800.00, This light would pay for itself in about 18 months.
But I have the feeling the $800.00 price MIGHT be a highball price. Bill's a sneaky one
Will you still need to use metal/glass gobo's or can you make your own via transparency?
Fans???? hhhmmmmm Wonder what that's about?
LED should not be getting that hot, should it?
And multiple fans? hhhmmmm
yeah price is a bit high, but have to agree with Brian on it's value over my Shakespears/ Altmans.
100 watt LED; there'll be a fan or 2....As far as making your own gobo; ain't gonna happen ...You get a shadow through the black now with the 10w Chauvet unit.....
Bill, can the TwinSpin fit in this? How does this compare to a 550W Source 4 lamp?
The 100w LED will be about the same brightness as a 575w halogen fixture but it will have a higher color temperature making it appear brighter.
I dont do uplighting, but if i did I would get 4 of those things..
'back in the day' of me doing theater lighting a variable lens Leko (or ERS..) was the GO TO light for everything I needed.. gobo? yup, Spot? yes, pattern? yes..
Pars lighted the place, fresnels washed it, and the lekos did everthing else..
It's still 100 Watts though..
That's the point!
