These leds do cost much more than a ‘normal’ low energy bulb.
Large diameter bulbs can be found at Bailey
Yes, but a CFL bulb, if that's what you are suggesting,is hardly a replacement for the new technology of LED's.
Instant on, thousands of hours of reliable output, constant color temperature,or variable,in some models,dimmable output,almost zero heat output,lightweight construction..
Makes a CFL look like a Tallow Candle by comparison.
And the NZ dollar is running about 82 cents vs the US$,so make that Minus 20%.

What about the CRI of LED's? "white" LEDs are far from a continuous spectrum, even worse than CFL's.

Would this matter for B&W printing though ?
Is Ole still around here?
I want to know his experiences using his bulb alternative.
Concerning spectrum, I’m using graded paper.
Use equal quantities of blue and green LEDs and vary the times of each to change grades.

Yes. Including the limitation in max. achievable contrast with blue LED's. A continuous spectrum has the advantage that the spectrum simply goes on and one only has to filter and extend exposure...
