I bought the 2 lamp fixture last week. The build quality is excellent, and the features well thought out. Your ballasts and lamp combination kicks out SIGNIFICANTLY more light than my converted aquarium fixtures, which use the OSRAM Lamps from B&H.

One thing I noticed is that since these lights are optomized of high output, there were hotspots noticable when doing green screen work. Richard recommended the use of plastic diffusion panels from Home Depot so I tried it. PROBLEM SOLVED. I couldn't believe the difference in smoothness, with no visible reduction in output. (unlike the loss from using a layer of light diffusion material)
The cheap stuff from Home Depot works great: either the "Clear Cracked Ice" pattern, or the small diamond pattern (clear prismatic). Score it with a razor knife and snap it. You'll get 6-7
panels from a $6 4x2 sheet.
Now, all we need is the eggcrate accessories... Hurrry up Richard!
