Testing LED Lightpanels with 4×5

I tested my friend’s new 1’x1′ LED light panel the other day to see what the quality of light was like and I must say, I like it.  I was a bit skeptical at first because the light was quite harsh at first glance and it seemed very, very cold.  Now, from the scan below you can see that it is not cold and is a really nice light.  I believe it was about 4-6′ away from the subject up and to the right.  Can’t remember what the shutter speed was but something like 1/15 @ 5.6 100 ISO film.

Now, the real reason for this test?  I am building my own LED light panel in the next few weeks.  I have 1000 LED’s on order being shipped as we speak and have done all the math needed to figure out the load and power supply, etc.  This one that I tested is a 1’X1′ with 576 LED’s where mine will be more like a 1’x2′ or 18″x2′ setup and have upwards of 800 lights so, that much brighter.  We’ll see how it goes…
