Well I don't know how you get an EV of 6 from a 60w bulb at 2m. I went out and bought a couple of bulbs and as you can't get standard incandecent bulbs any more I had to get "energy saving" halogens. When I fitted one of these I only get an EV of 5 at 2m and I have to come to about a meter to get EV 6 but after the 11w compact fluorescent I had in my darkroom befor it looks anything other than dim and my prints look similar to viewing next to a window with the advantage of consistancy.
