One of the things I kept when I ditched my darkroom stuff years ago was a 4x5 Beseler dichroic color head and film carriers. My thinking was that, someday, I could use the color head as a light source for camera scanning of flims, with the ability to color correct in the analog domain when scanning.

Never thought of this aspect of light source color, but interested.

A dichroic head might make a fine light source. Availability of bulbs might be an issue, as well as heat and vibration from the fan. I’d be most worried about that last one.
