Elation's also introduced a new 15r lamp that they say has  comparable output to 700 and some 1200 watt movers. Also it has got CMY color mixing.

About $3700 a fixture.

Where'd you find it (Platinum 15R) for that?  I've only seen it around $5000.  They also have the Platinum 5R PRO that is CMY and zoom for around $3000.

I finally got some decent pictures of the Platinum Spot 5R in use so I'll link to them here.  There are 3 PS5R's hanging directly from the truss and 2 MAC250's on 24" drop downs.

Interesting... I assume the MAC250s are not dimmed.  Are they old type MAC250s or modern Entours?

It seems that the 5Rs are brighter by a significant amount, and bearing in mind their comprehensive feature set and the fact they are cheaper than 250s, look like a real alternative to the mainstream manufacturers smaller moving heads.

I'll need to get a demo of them...

You are correct, the MAC250's are not dimmed, and there are low hours on these lamps.  They are the original MAC250's, not Plus, Krypton, or Entour.  I have used the newer versions and they are a bit brighter than the old style but still not nearly as bright as the PS5R.  When I get double booked and have to use the MAC250's by themselves it makes me really miss the PS5R.  I really can't wait to get rid of the MAC250's and plan on having at least 8 PS5R's this year.

Besides the fact that they're brighter, they're also smaller and lighter weight than the MAC250's.  I really noticed this on a gig a couple of weeks ago while climbing a ladder with the MAC250's...

I currently have Mac250 Entours/ washes etc in hire stock and sometimes I find myself wishing for something a bit brighter.  I'll need to check the 5R out.

Cheers
