Peter- below is some info on super good exposure blubs. They are more
expensive but I've had mine 4+years and they are all still going strong-
They are used at least 5 days a week if I'm not printing then my assistant is.
Advantange of electronic balisist is that they are instant on instnt color
temp. No warm up change etc. Not only are the blubs hight wattage but they
have 180 degree internat reflectors so you get all the light bounced into the
photograph. Super fast printing times!
