In an elevator cabin (in vacuum) in free fall , how about light that emitted upward from the floor ? Perhaps, as the source recedes, speed of waves [relative to the cabin] will increase. And wavelength becomes longer (This behavior is different from behavior in non gravitational field).

How about when a light source in free fall is observed from above ? Light speed will become slower, wavelength will become longer and frequency will decrease.

Emission Theory & Rotating Light Source

Now, photons are emitted from a rotating light source (rotating at high speed). If the emission theory is true, in vacuum, speed of photons will be various (relative to the source ; some of photons exceed c ; for a few seconds). And distinction (whether emission theory is true or not) will be easier when rotating light source is switched on and off.
