What kind of light painting system exactly do you have in mind that costs that much? Just curious.

I took look at the Cuda web site (Cuda being one of the brands you had in mind). Do you really need such good collimation? How big is the area you are trying to paint? What kind of precision do you need? Have you considered dedolights ( MaxaBeam is also another extreme flashlight that costs a fortune, but gives amazing portable light output.
