Why can't ETC get its act together and make an ellipsoidal reflector spotlight that won't burn through Roscolene 842--a medium pale lavender, within minutes? On the bottom is a piece of 842 removed after less than 10 minutes with an HPL575W/115V lamp in a 36°. On top is an 842 removed from a 26° after the same amount of time. One can see it's beginning to fade/burn. I seldom had this problem with my Capital 6x12s lamped with 750T12/9s! And gel would last forever in my Rear Beamport frontlights, Capital 8x9 "Cannon" Lekos, even with 1500T24/6 mogul bipost base lamps. The lamps also had a convenient gel-saving feature where the lamp would turn black before it burned the gel. As an added bonus, the step lenses provided built in texture to the light. I'm just not sure I trust this newfangled Quartz-Iodide technology.
