I have a DeVere 507 which is a great enlarger, but has some defects: it is very power consuming, it heats up a lot and it need noisy fans to be constantly running, and fades even dichroic filters in the long run, because they are very close to the light source.
I was wondering if I can substitute its light sources (originally two MR16 24V/250W halogen lamps) with correspondent high efficiency ones.
Browsing online I found this LED model:
It has the same shape, attachment and very close color temperature (3300°K vs. 3250°K of a halogen). I am in doubt about the beam angle, which is 40° but I do not know about the normal halogen. I am not sure if this would make a difference, since the color head has a mixing chamber.
Has anybody tried something similar? I am from Italy and I would have a hard time getting those bulbs here, so I would appreciate some experienced advice before I get into this...
