Just starting my printing and framing journey. After researching several lighting options, these bulbs came across as the most economical way to start. And they do not disappoint.
Being a standard E26 bulb I can place them in many different locations, situations, and setups to evaluate the future purchase of more expensive lighting options for displaying my work.
If you're new to art lighting, this is a perfect bulb with which to start. If you're experienced, this is a perfect bulb with which to experiment with "proper lighting" in different locations and situations.
I work in the Art Department for film & television and recently ordered two of these bulbs to help with colour matching. We often pick Pantone colours and match against our supplier's paint chips. They have been hugely helpful and have made a significant difference for myself and my team. I would fill our office with them if I could.
I have a mild case of deuteranomaly colourblindness and these help me to close the gap when dealing with nuanced colour differences.
These bulbs are bright without being harsh on the eyes. Great for illuminating surfaces when working day or night. Also excellent when taking photos of art work.
Purchased a 6500k bulb just to see what it was like. I am extremely satisfied with the bulb as well as the help I received from the company in determining my needs. I will be making additional purchases from the company in the near future.
I purchased this for the vanity in the main bathroom. It has three lights. I'd installed 2700K and 3000K since lower quality LED's looked better at those color temperatures. 5000K looked harshly blue. These don't appear harsh or blue at all. Skin tones look healthy whether white or black skin. This light also works well for artwork although the Waveform Absolute Series 99CRI Lightstrip is better. The difference matters for specific oil pigments. I may make a small strip light for the bathroom just to satisfy my curiosity but the difference between Waveform's LED's and other manufacturers is breathtaking enough that it may be a long time before the strip light project is realized. I have other places for the strip light first.
I use these bulbs in my office where I do print work. They provide the perfect environment to do such color critical work. I'll be buying again.
I recently bought several Northlux 95 cri bulbs from Waveform to use in drafting table lamps, and I have to say they work just as advertised. Both color temperature and luminosity are great and perfect for the copy and print work that I need to do in conjunction with my art practice. I just got them so I won't comment yet about durability, but right now I would not hesitate to order again when I need replacements in the future.
Very good light to paint at night, make me very productive at any time !!! Would like try different lamps to compare!!!Thank you for great studio light!!!
These bulbs allow me to use the quality 95 CRI lighting in my standard bulb lighting gear. Love them!
These bulbs are truly flicker-free. There’s no invisible flicker to trigger my migraines. I couldn’t be happier about discovering Waveform. These are the perfect bulbs for the studio, especially if you want to avoid the health risks of invisible LED flicker.
While not specific to this product, I’ll add that Waveform’s customer service has been absolutely amazing helping me to understand the options for flicker-free industrial LED lighting. We need to fix the lighting in a workplace renovation because LED products made by other companies have invisible flicker that gives me headaches with debilitating “brain fog” that keeps me from doing my job. I am so grateful to Waveform for their product lines and outstanding customer service. They have given me hope that solutions are possible.
