So, my local dealer was sent some of the new Ushio SPH lamps, and wanted me to setup a shootout/comparison with some of the other lamps that these were meant to compete with. So, what i wanted to know is how you all think that I should set up the test. I have the high output and long life versions of the SPH lamp. Here is what I have to work with. The test platform would be the old Strand Axials in either a 6x9 or 6x12 or Altman 360Q 6x16s. I also have a couple of Phillips' "The Sink" sitting around so we could put these in ETC source fours for comparison to the HPL. Right now I have been using and have in stock FELs and HX-755s for the Strand units. I know wattage-wise it isn't a direct comparison, but lamp efficiency could make up for that. I can probably get a light meter for the shootout, but any other ideas on setup would be great so that I can get you all useful results.
