Thanks, Daniel. Yes, you may use these pictures. I will be adding a few photos to this log in a day or two. I just received two 10W LED wall-wash flood lights
to replace the clamp lamps: The specs: Shell Material : High Strength Aluminum, Cover Material: 5mm High Strength Glass, LED Emitter: 10W Led, Color Temp: 5000~6500K(white), Work Voltage : 100~240VAc 50/60Hz, Power Factor : >0.90, CRI: >80, LifeSpan Time : > 60,000 hours, Dimensions : 114mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 88mm(T). It's a blinding white-light that seems to work well under the "Cloudy" preset on Canons, and they output a much lower heat temperature.
If anyone is considering purchasing some of these LED's, know that the seller referenced in the supplied link above is very prompt to reply to questions and has fast shipping. The only downside is that they come from Hong Kong so it takes a couple of weeks to get to the U.S., and it comes with a standard European 3-pin plug for which you will have to purchase an adapter - UNLESS you specify in your order that you live in the U.S. and would like them to send you the 3-pin U.S. adapter along with the lights (they should provide that to you at no charge). This seems to be the best price, at least on eBay, but a little more diligent searching may provide the same light at a cheaper price.
