I'm looking to get some LED bulbs to use as safelights for making film speed emulsions. (I use Doran sleeves on fluorescents bulbs for regular darkroom work.)
I currently have 2 Westinghouse 1 watt Nanolux bulbs. $10 or so. http://www.amazon.com/Westinghouse-N.../dp/B000UQ1Y0Y
This bulb works really nicely at about 3 ft from my work area when in a conical reading lamp housing, but I'd like something a little more powerful to cover more area. Westinghouse also makes a 3 watt version that I was thinking of trying, but I thought I'd see if anyone here has actually tried some LED bulbs.
So, what have you tried and what did you think?
