    ya that 'bowl'.... isn't that called the reflector? hehe...

    anyway the socket is too deep in, the bowl will make the lamp protrude about 3-4mm... so the stand's contact points can't touch the lamp's contact points. by removing the bowl then will the lamp barely touch the points.

    hmm...if just a few mm, can try to pull out the contact points or add a piece of wire to "extend" it right?

    the most important thing is whether the base of the bulb can screw into the socket with the reflector bowl

    if can...i am going to get it today liao

    went to the shop to check out the bulb...really huge siah...but as long as it can screw inside the socket with the bowl on, just need to modify the contact a bit and it should work

    Wai, you may wanna consider the CRI rating of the bulbs as well. CRI= color rendering index. Which is quite important if you wanna use the lights for photography.

    that shop no more 65W cool white energy saving lamp and they are not going to order also.

    in the end i got 2 x 30W cool white bulb at $6.90 each, bargained to $13 for both. actually it is cheaper to set up 4 x 30W lights than 2 x 65W lights, the light stand just $12, add one more 30W bulb only $18.50 for whole set Probably i will get one more light stand if 2 x 30W not enough

    Got stupid qns to ask, what about those philips engery saving light bulbs, with cool daylight color, 23 watts of electricity supposely equivalent to 100 watts of light. They come in e27 sockets too, can those be used ? I'm thinking of setting up a mini table top work area to play around too. Thanks.
