    Ikea JANSJÖ light

    I was at a local Ikea and bought one of these lights for $10. I think these would be great for table top work. They're LED light with a flexible goose neck. I think they might be useful for tabletop shooting.

    The light seems to be about 5200k° . I haven't tested them with film yet.

    Did you run out of money after 43.7 seconds?

    Better not miss the Swedish Meatballs!

    Ja. Had the meatballs with lingonberries. Meatballs and poorman's Dedolights. I'm a serious Ikea hacker.

    The product information says: "Light color; warm white (2700 Kelvin)"

    No, I left as I could feel my brain being sucked into the stylistic vacuum of cheap and nasty - My wife loves IKEA, I wait in the car and talk to our dog, who has never had the pleasure of Swedish meatballs - The last time we went there we had our old Volvo 240GL wagon, sadly now replaced

    The product spec says 2700K.

    Power consumption is only 4.2 watts, not all of which gets converted to light.

    These are killer for macro work. Colour temp? Not so sure. Digital shooters just juggle white balance.
