    CFLs have come a long way although now LED is catching up fast with more choices and lower price range.

    So is CFLs losing its appeal in photography and video? My personal opinion is NO... at least not for another 3-4 years later. We have not seem many new CFLs products coming out since the rise of LED. However LINCO last year came out with an innovative design under their FLORA light range, a CFLs bank with remote control.
