Now this is pretty interesting. Recently at the 2012 SHOT show (tradeshow for outdoors and hunting), Foursevens revealed their new lithium powered LED light. Unlike typical LED lights, the XM18 produces an unprecedented 15,000 lumens of light. According to my simple calculations, the XM18 might be more powerful than your low to mid level Arri HMI lights! The XM18 is also fairly affordable compared to some HMIs since it costs a modest $2,500 per unit. Location photographers and videographers might be jumping on to these units soon unless annoying neighbors worldwide start placing their orders first!
