There is any possibility to compare continuos lighting with photographic ligths
I got some of this lights

and I thinking to get some continuos light Ep. but the only point of reference that I have are this speedotron lights ... It is the same amount of lights from the same 1200w sources???
i mean the light I get on the arri 1200W in the maximum will be the same as I get from
the speedotron???

Strobes and continuous lights do not compare directly, for one reason. Strobes put out a very large amount of light for a very short time. Unless you could find a strobe that would synchronize exactly with your camera's frame rate (and not induce seizures in anyone in the room) there just is no direct comparison.
