Thanks for posting... that is mind blowing. I can't imagine what we'll have in a few years.
Did you know that there will be self-ballasted CFLs with 200K electronic ballasts... bulbs that will output something like 4x the current lumens per watt?
It's an exciting time to be a lighting builder... there's so much more to the legal story then I can go into here. With the technology coming down the wire... you can see why some companies want to monopolize every aspect of lighting for video... production lighting is going to get incredible in the next few years... meaning what you can do for a given $$$... as long as the couple of aggressive players don't succeed in cornering the market before the cool sh*t even gets here. If they do... we'll be at their mercy to implement the new tech at a reasonable price.

I've had access to a 60w LED since the fall--yes that's one LED and it is one bright light--really hurts to look at it. 1800lm output. Some other Chinese companies have a 40w one. Asia is where much of this progress is taking place right now. I saw it at the Hong Kong Lighting fair in October and got it from Taiwan--that company beat Osram to the market by a few months.
I think the obvious first product would be a small single LED pepper fresnel. A very cute light on the order of the dedo size. Just not sure if people will be able to stomach the price. Once packaged in the right fixture, it wouldn't be as much as a dedo but for sure not close to the price of one of those cheap blueline knockoffs.
