DescriptionHaving watched a video on creating a portable window, using a massive parabolic reflector and a stupidly bright LED, the presenter dropped a comment about being able to do the same thing on a more sensible scale using a lower power light and a fresnel lens.  So I decided to experiment and bought a Fresnel magnifier.  This is what happens when you use a fresnel magnifier with a small LED source projecting onto a white foamboard sheet.  Not exactly a wide coherent soft light source.
