Easy to set up ...maybe
Essential for critical color correction..........I agree they are good for colour proofing, but I think they are unnecessary for B & W
Inexpensive.........well they maybe in the US but here in the UK they are about 13.00 a bulb with no fitting

Also I am not in favour of using spot lamps for illuminating works as they tend to produce hot spots unless you several diffused lamps, a traditional bare bulb at a reasonable distance produces a much more even light.

Dose not Vilk have a point that as long as you are happy with the levels of shadow and highlight detail trying to produce prints to the environment in which they will be displayed will just result in prints with either greater or lesser amounts of contrast?
