I became curious about this recently when my son got a very bright led flashlight, so I shot a quick and dirty test comparing it with flash. I shot raw and white-balanced on the second-brightest greyscale patch.




Right ..but you are at 1/3 of a second at F4 with the LED and 1/60 at F4 with the flash. So for still subjects you are VERY close to ..the LED seems OK but back off a hair and you run out of light or can read a lighting manual while exposing.
