My complaint is that in many instances the normal bulb filament is just too dim. Given a nice bright beam on subjects can translate to a true point-and-shoot camera without having to do anything more than holding the camera up and giving nothing more than a cursory glance through the pull-up sportfinder, and click.
Take an old bulb, remove the glass from the base, and solder/epoxy a high-intensity LED to the base.
