I recently purchased parts to provide a proof of concept of replacing some lanterns with high efficiency LEDs and boosting the total light output in the process. Here are some preliminary views of these lights in action. This is by no means a scientific study, but dose provide an initial proof of concept that indicates it will work. These pictures were taken with the cameras settings manually controlled. Note: In the first set of images the LED is sitting on the floor and the CFL is suspended from the ceiling. In the second set, both are suspended from the ceiling.
Here is a picture showing just how bright the LED is. This is with a piece of standard copy paper to simulate a diffuser.
