This is actually an excellent suggestion for lighting (and since it was made before in this list, I went out and bought a bunch of it for some areas of the studio). The only drawback is that it can produce some very hard light with hard-edge shadows and some very crispy specular highlights off reflective surfaces (typical of a small light source a relatively large distance from the surface, it becomes more like a point light source than a broad). In some long-term use environments it can produce some eyestrain. In a situation like this, it's a good idea to use a number of these bulbs overhead, or add some that are bounced off ceiling or walls to fill those hard shadows and soften the overall lighting. david - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
