The Chimera Triolet is good for tungsten. 5600k Joker is good for daylight. I'm actually thinking of buying a the Chimera 20" Lantern with the Triolet and use the 650w adapter.
I've used them for overhead night exteriors and they work pretty well.

also how would you go about changing the color temperture?
is there an easy way to wrap gels around them?

I know Chimera makes color correction sheets for their softboxes but I'm not sure about the lanterns series. They definitely have a bobbinet/scrim to help control the output.
I'm mainly interested in how the 650w in a chimera lantern would differ from an array of 60w bulbs in a coop w/ diffusion, ala Woodylite / Custom Deakins rig.
