Looking for a super-bright modular LED light bar

    I am fairly certain this does not exist. Someone please make it and I will buy it.

    I am looking for a way to brightly illuminate, but which does not put all the LEDs into a single tight bunch, but rather distributes them along a long narrow band about 2 meters wide. There's no need to blind underwater animals with a tight and extreme intensity spot flood.

    Also, in murky water a spot beam with 50,000 lumen output is going to have a huge bright cloud directly in front of the LEDs before the beams diverge that is annoying. Distributing individual bright LEDs along a bar-frame reduces the luminence cloud directly in front of the bright LEDs.

    Probably the best solution is a modular LED light bar with its own batteries that is 1/2 meter long, but with sockets/tabs on the ends so that multiple light bars can be attached together into a rigid frame. With corner attachments, it could expand into a square light bar frame that is 0.5 by 0.5 or a rectangle such as 1.5 x 0.5 meters

    doesn't exist outside of custom submarine type applications.
    In murky water, remember that you can only see as far as the particulate will allow. Doesn't matter if you have 50,000 lumen or 500, the distance you can see is only ever going to be so far.

    50k lumen is a lot of light, what do you need that for other than professional photography?

    Yes they exist , I saw them once , long plexi tubes over 1,5 m set on seabed for night wide scene filming , otherwise technical not something special.
    (indirect illumination of reef - from white sand ) or it was on YT ?


    but there are also other commercial lights like
