LED bulb in enlarger

Postby JJFOTO » Sat May 01, 2010 11:40 am

I am thinking about installing a new E27 230 V AC LED bulb (about 500 lumen) in my Leitz Focomat IIc enlarger. The colour temperature is 5000 K. Does anybody have experience with the new bulb technology? I guess that is could be an advantage to have a higher colour temperature instead of the about 2800-3000 K in an standard mat tungsten bulb.
