With all the recent activity on this forum and talk of industry contribution I got to thinking in the wee hours of the morning what is something that would help me and possibly others in the industry. I am a photo buff and moving towards cinematography too. On vimeo, for the past several years they have had segments called the great camera shootout, in which they compare different models of cameras to see how they perform in exactly the same conditions to level the playing field and see how they perform head to head. I got to thinking that this might be a great way to illustrate the capabilities of the various LEDs from varying manufactures out there on the market. These would be compared to the same halogen lamp as a benchmark, which is what they are mostly trying to emulate anyway. We could see each one go head to head against the halogen on a fixed display and compare the various outcomes on different surfaces ie.. trees, smooth light colored walls, brick, down lighting etc... I would also envision trying to get in some interviews with various contractors and industry professionals about feedback. I am just brainstorming here, but seeing head to head results on a neutral playing field would be something very helpful to me and I'm sure to others also as we navigate through this brave new world of LED's. Looking for feedback and possibly ideas to go along with this.
