I have been reading the H.I.D. conversion debate during my breaks in work today and in and among all of what was written, I couldn't believe nobody pointed out the most obvious fit for our machines surrounding this technology, until thankfully Maurice said it at the end of the discussion thus far!
Why oh why was anyone speaking of 55w lamps, car conversion kits or using old lamp reflectors, when the Xenpow 150 offers all that's ever needed as a direct replacement lamp without even changing the lamp holder, when coupled with the suitable ballast unit?
This lamp is made for the job straight out of the box, with superb xenon like output by all accounts, from those who have already successfully fitted them to GS 1200, Beaulieu 708el and Fujicascope SH 30 machines.
I was truly baffled and positively perplexed reading nearly all that went before Maurice's piece.
As per usual nowadays over on film tech, I had my comedy moment once again given to me today, courtesy this time from the 250w 10,000 lumen claim!
(Lighthouse power from a 250w lamp. Spectacularly impressive.)
Keep up the good work Film Tech advisories!
Entertainment at its very very best during these cold winter northern afternoons.
Warms the cockles, it really does! 😂😂
As for the Xenpow 150 H.I.D. lamp and Ballast kit,..
Not for the amateur, maybe,.. but this is the only Serious H.I.D. replacement kit worth changing your Osram Xenophot A1 231/ 232 for!!
Anything else, don't bother, it simply ain't worth your time or effort!!
For home use, a Xenophot standard lamp coupled with a two blade shutter and a fast lens will fulfil the requirements for even the largest of HC screens with close to modern day video projector red rich lamp intensity standards to the eye.
For the home, nothing more could ever be desired or prove necessary.
