I've gotten a whole lot of feedback when it comes to a "safelight" for the darkroom (developing & contact printing B&W prints on RC VC paper) from borrowing one to investing in a good one to purchasing red LEDs.
At this point, I'm heading towards buying a cheap source of red light which will act as a "safelight".
Here is what I have come up with so far:
(please comment on each one as you see fit to whether it will work or not and how many I will need)
and another look at the same bulb http://www.bulbrite.com/products_en_...m-E26-Base.php
This one looks promising: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER
Something I found interesting.. is there much difference between the Satco bulb above for $3 and this "jr. safelight" they charge $17 for? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ed_Junior.html
I think this will be too bright: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A2NVEKMQTGKOW8
And lastly, good old red and cheap LED lights: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A3TNRVM8W04X84
Oh, and I'm still open for suggestions that don't include the above items(please include a link and/or where to obtain it)
-Thanks so much! (the final process for overview is still to come.. tomorrow or wed.)
