    ic, thanks, will try hunting again. The cool daylight I saw at carrefour seems white to me hehe, the warm daylight is yellowish, maybe I need to check again too

    Played with the eastgear lights yesterday, realised that they were oni 125watts

    Thanks for the heads up, can I know where to get them ? So far the highest I've seen is 25watts = 125watts kind, and they cost $8.90 at HomeFix.

    The same place where Del_CtrlnoAlt got his 65W energy saving bulbs

    but i found that the 65W is too expensive ($28 each!) and too huge to fit into my light stand without modification. i rather use the money to get two more light stands ($24) + 4 x 30W ($26), still cheaper than getting 2 x 65W ($56).

    Also, i believe 4 x 30W will be more powerful than 2 x 65W in practise

    WaI, actually there are 96W compact tubes, but those are the long ones and not spiral (pretty long, i think nearly 1m). These would be equivalent of about 500W tungsten halogen lamps.

    Thanks Wai, will go down to take a look soon, is there any specific brand to look out for, or just one type only? Thanks again.

    Hehe, 2100, 1m long tubes are not exactly compact...
