Some CRI and Footcandle readerings, different LEDs

from piecing together newshooter’s tests and my own:

DIFFERENT LIGHTS, output 1m

skypanel s60: 1090 fc

gemini 2x1 :927fc

softpanel 1:2: 347fc

astra 6x - 588 fc

apurture 300d no modifier: 829 fc

aputure 300d with modifier: 996 fc

joker 800 with fresnel lens: 4300 fc

joker 800 with wide angle lens: 20,000 fc

Quasar Q-LED: 476 LUX at 1 meter - 44.2 footcandles

Quasar Q-ION: 55 FC

CRI rendering 5600k: 

softpanels: CRI (R1-R8) of 96.2 and an extended CRI (R1-R15) of 94.54.

gemini: average CRI (R1-R8) of 95.2 and an extended CRI (R1-R15) of 93.24.

ARRI SC60-C SkyPanel 5600K Extended CRI (R1-R15)- 92.92

astra 6x - average 92.4, extended, 89.3

aputure 300d: average CRI (R1-R8) of 94.4 and an extended CRI (R1-R15) of 92.49

QUASAR SCIENCE Q-LED DIMMABLE - Average CRI 98.5 Extended CRI 97

QUASAR Q-ion - AVERAGE 96.9 CRI.  For the important skin tone range of R1, R2, R9, R13 and R15 all come in over 97 CRI. These are very solid numbers.

Conclusion: best CRI for most FC light when needed: Aputure 300d

best cri and half the light needed: softpanels 1x2

and also CRI is not the end all judge of how accurate a light is for skintone - you gotta use it yourself and see how it renders skintones for you. This is more than science, it’s an artform as well.
