By the way, do you mind is I quote your post over in another newsgroup?
My wife is a quilter and color is even more critical for them.


What, if you snuggle up with one to take a nap, you'll refuse it at the last
second if the color is off a bit?

Quilts or quilters?

Ott light


My household has three (3) OTT lights and we love them.

BUT

I also have two similar products with good "color rendering" light output.
They were MUCH cheaper than an OTT and, TME, ( to my eye ) are every bit as
good for fine, eye stressing work such as tying.

I would really like to try them side by side. Since the Solux bulb is so
much cheaper than the Ott, I think I may just order one.

Frank,
Will the Solux bulb work in the Ott lite fixture?

Doesn't look like it. Check 'em out at www.solux.com

Ah, they don't have any brand identification on them that I can see. I
turned one on 'side by side' with an OTT light and the OTT was noticeably
'cooler' in color but I still find them easy on the eyes and almost too
bright ( 27 watt )

I 'think' I got them from nextten.com but can't say that for sure, I got
them somewhere online and I have that site book marked G I have a OTT
designed ( poorly designed imho ) specifically for use with a fly tying vise
and I still use it right over the vise, but I wanted the surrounding area
well lit, also, so I got two floor lamps, one on each side of me. My
"tying room" is permanently setup in my travel trailer and goes with me on
fishing trips.

My eye doctor, the last time I got checked, told me that lighting was a key
factor in getting good focus as we age .... much like a camera, our depth of
field depends on iris opening ... so my personal reason for lots of good
light is really more being able to focus well, than 'color.' However, I
have taken materials from my lighting into real mid day open shade and the
colors seem the same to me ... there is far more variation in two bugs, of
the same species, caught in the same seine, than what I see in these two
lighting situations. However, incandescent light .... especially 12 volt
trailer lights ... suck and do change color perception a lot.

I noticed that things did not look as sharp when I was wearing my
sunglasses, although I could find no flaw in the lenses. It finally
dawned on me that since my sunglasses allowed only 15 percent of the
light to reach my eye, I had to open my "aperture" about three
"f-stops" -- e.g., from f/16 to f /5.6 -- so my lenses were not as
sharp as when stopped down.

Okay, sure, I see it now. Critique the Ott light, get me searching,
find the Solux and boom, I'm now out touting your family business.
Sneeky. :-)

I would really like to do a side-by-side. I know that I can tie a lot
easier with an Ott light than I can with a normal light. I can even do
some work without my reading glasses.

Frank

yes, go ahead and quote me. I was away fishing the last few days,
Trinity River and Upper and Lower Sacramento in Northern Calif. As I
said fishing, not catching, results as the say in French, "totalament
eskonkee."
