I am getting together equipment for a makeshift darkroom. These days red or orange LEDs are probably better (and cheaper) than safelights.
Anybody has current recommendations? I haven't seen recent posts about this.
There are plenty of cheap red LED bulbs for decorative lighting, but I am not sure about the wavelength. I know OptiLED red and amber reportedly work well, but these are among the most expensive. They are also too bright, a 1W LED should be enough.
