It's OK'ish for theatre and TV but still fails in film where pulsing prevent it being used in more extreme settings, such as low-light. Also, colour aberrations prevent the use of RGB lights - even on the Arri Skypannel (£5k each!) and one still has to put filters in front of them to get a true colour representation (unless you want bright red or green faces).
Pulsing shouldn't occur with a proper HF control. Unfortunately some manufacturers cheap out and just chop up ordinary rectified mains giving an average constant power, so you get 100Hz ripple (which filament lamps tend to smooth out).

The lights in my kitchen are like that. Impossible to take a photo when they are on :(
