Hope this is the appropriate section to post this? Here in the UK by the year 2011 the goverment are phaseing out most types of tungsten lamps and replacing them with energy saving lamps. I don't know how this will effect enlargers and safelights that use tungsten lamps. These energy saving lamps are brighter watt for watt then normal tungsten lamps, for example a 9 watt energy saver is approx. to a 40 watt tungsten lamp. Also they are at the moment physically larger then standard tungsten lamps. My enlarger uses halogen lamps so as yet this will not be a problem, my concern is with the small 15 watt pygmy lamps I use in my red safelights. If these are discontinued the new lamps will be too bright and physically too big to fit the lamp housing. In any case these new lamps are not suitable at present for use in enclosed fixtures. I would be most interested if anyone can provide more information and if a similar scheme is in place in other corners of the globe. Always in the dark, Trevor.
