I've actually done my own PAR testing using point-source ('evil cluster' LED arrays) and distributed light (T5HO), and using multiple point-sources. Before the cones of light from point-source arrays...

Light intensity measurements degrade as an inverse square. If the light gives 100 PAR at 12" (which is a stretch IMHO), then at 24" it will give 25 PAR. Double the distance, 1/4 the PAR, half the...

The T3 is decent, much better than a point n shoot or a cell camera :)

Looks like the 1100D doesn't have really any quality options for video recording, only 1280x720 at either 30 or 25FPS. Make...

Movie Maker doesn't do a great job of rendering for quality, but it should be at least decent.

Reflectors and ballasts make or break the fixture. ATI's reflectors are the best, plain and simple, it's not about only reflectivity. The growershouse light claims it uses programmed start ballasts,...

Having only twelve diodes puts you into very, very low light for a tank that is 18" tall, which you don't want. If you ever see this not being a 'moderate' light tank, then use the same LEDs outlined...

If you're planning on high-tech, you'll want to use more LEDs than that. Don't bother with Epistar. (edit: I see you're wanting 'moderate' light but heavy planting? might not work out that well...

I'd recommend to use the lower Vero series and just use more of them, that way you could use LDD drivers (which top out at 1A) or O2Surplus' custom A6211 drivers that top out at 1.6A, but unless your...

Youre still going to need drivers that give a minimum of 77v. Lowering amperage only lowers voltage by a small amount.
