You would need an HID for that kind of range, or a large incandescent spotlight.
WHT_GE8-as far as lenses go I prefer a borosilicate lens.Much tougher and longer lasting than standard UCL lens.You lose a little light but not so much that it makes a difference.
How many bulbs were you intending to buy?I would buy at least 2 or 3 sets.Since these bulbs are being overdriven they have very short lives.I have had some last as little as 2 hours and some go over 10 hours-but not much more.
Other than that everything looks good.Place your order and wait for the big brown truck of joy to deliver the parts.
Edit: Another stupid question, if I decide to upgrade my ROP to li-ion would aw 2600 be suitable for this? Charging 6 nimh batteries is a bit hassle, because eneloop stock charger charges only 4 battery at a time.
I run my 2C ROP off two AW brand 3.7v Li-Ions just fine. You need to buy an extender for the Mag body, though.
I have the same problem,i use eneloops and the output seems not brighter then xenon 6d bulb!I think the 6D body have great resistance!The HI bulb is usually much brighter than the LO bulb... Your batteries probably have a high internal resistance and can't handle the current. Get yourself a good set of Eneloop or Duracell Pre-Charged (the made in Japan with the white top). Also, what batteries adapters are you using? The black 3AA to D usually found at DX have a high resistance...
