    Both Home Depot and Lowe's sell halogen bulbs that are 100W "equivelent", but are 72W.

    Not to editorialize, but I use regular 150 tungsten bulbs as the "white" lights in my darkroom. You can't buy 100W, but 150W and 300W are readily available.

    I also use 100w in the darkroom. You can still get 100w bulbs at some places. I just got some last week at a local hardware store. Some off brand but they had a bunch in stock. I looked on Amazon and they still had some in a 48 bulbs package. A lifetime supply. Checkout someplace besides Home Depot and Lowes.

    LED 100W replacements will be quite rare, and very pricey. 60W replacements run about $20 currently. And no matter what type of bulb you buy, get into the habit of comparing lumens, not wattages. With watts no longer being useful for gauging bulb brightness, lumens are the answer.

    Yes, I can't buy incandescents in 100W, so looking at the halogens, LEDs, and whatever else they have at Lowes/Home Despot. I just can't tell which ones will turn off quickly and not expose my film if I'm loading holders, etc...
    Don't know if they still make them but at one time they made a Y-shaped converter which had two sockets for bulbs going into a single base.

    I just checked here where I work: a 100W replacement in LED is 1675 lumens and would cost you about $45 to $50. Of course, it'll also last 25,000 hours.

    If one uses fluorescent lamps and has issues with phosphorescence after switching off, one might consider a kind of flap that one can swing over the fixture to cover the switched off lamp.

    I used these bulbs a lot when I was doing construction. They really have a more durable filament but put out less light and a more yellow light than the "Same old incandescents". Still should work for most needs.
