Re: Comparing electronic flash to LED lighting

For example

i am testing a 6000 lux, daylight balanced CoB and a Paul C. Buff, Inc. EINSTEIN E640 monolight.

with the front of the softbox , a Chimera Lighting 22” Octa2 Beauty Dish with internal baffle and front scrim installed,  five feet from the target, a properly exposed test image requires an f/3.2, ISO 320 exposure at 1/60th.

To match that exposure I needed to dial the Einstein down to 3.3 watt-seconds.
