    Ian,

    Do you know if there is any web page detailing the EU regulations?

    Fellow member Mirko Boeddecker and supplier (Fotoimpex) who offers small production run enlarger lamps from a german manufacturer got on the issue whether opalized classic incandescent lamps specialized for enlarger use make an exception to the ban (as they could be applied for household use) this positive reply from his manufacturer:

    "14-05-09

    ...auch die Opallampen fallen in die Ausnahmeregelung:

    Sie haben spezielle Farbtemperaturen und Lebensdauer von max. 100h.

    Die Lampe ist eindeutig als Photolampe auf Kolben und Verpackung gekennzeichnet,

    zudem bringen wir das vorgeschriebene Etikett auf die Verpackung auf mit dem Symbol "nicht für den Hausgebrauch zulässig"

    Die Lampen werden von uns eindeutig als Speziallampen vermarktet..."

    Here's what Babel Fish did with it:

    … also the opal lamps fall into the special arrangement:

    They have special color temperatures and life span of max. 100h.

    The lamp is clearly characterized as photo lamp on pistons and packing, besides we bring the prescribed label on the packing on with the symbol "not for the domestic purposes zulässig"

    The lamps are " marketed of us clearly as special lamps…"


    So the gist of that would be: As long as they are clearly marketed as bulbs for special use, and not domestic, it appears it is ok to still sell them.

    Steve this is nonsence !

    You buy those lamps for your enlarger and nobody is going to check if you are actualy using those bulbs there.

    I think it is a lot better idea to check-out other options like halogen and LED in order to have a sustainable light-source in our enlargers.

    I will start with my testing late September, early October and will see what is usable, LED lights from China cost nearly nothing on ebay, so ..........

    No. What it means is the shop cannot sell or advertise the bulbs as being for domestic use. They can only be sold or advertised for specialist use i.e. for use in an enlarger.

    What you do with them once you have bought them is entirely up to you.

    You mean like mandating ethanol content in gasoline? (Which reduces the fuel economy of the engine that uses it, since ethanol has lower energy content than gasoline)

    Every country has its issues.

    Thankfully it seems that the EU and US have both made exceptions for these bulbs. The Canadian ban is more distant but it is coming. I'll have to ensure it has an exception or I will be doing stockpiling myself.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
