Nice light!

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

This year, actually, Hamilton shut down almost a couple of weeks ago (Thursday 7th November to be precise, according to James).

Despite that I'm not the biggest fan of LPS (please don't kill me) it still brings a tear to my eye that a light source has come to an end . I don't care about lamp bans because I can still get them. This better not happen to MV and HPS

Don't worry, I can't afford a hit man

Seriously, I agree. As far as I know, there are no lamp manufacturers of any kind now in the UK, I don't know about anywhere else apart from China, and even Iwasaki are outsourcing to there now

sox35 - in my shed im using mazda 40w T12 aussie made but everything else is chineses, I've got some sylvania belgium lamps MV (all cooked beyond belief) and all of my sylvania HPS are belgian.

It is quite upsetting that there are no manufacturers that are not in china only good thing is no remorse for blowing them up

One of the few foods that stay the same colour is baked beans...

There are two kinds of light  -  the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.

how efficiently does the optispec distribute the light from a sox lamp?

When I saw the thumbnail for this, it looked to me like someone had put a little pink LED lamp in it

Ooooh hard question I'm not quite sure on that one I'll have to look into it. IIRC I have a catalogue of it that might have the photometrics.

Yep .. cameras tend not to like monochrome type colors - whether its SOX or LED or a colored Fluorescent.

Just tell the camera you're not asking it to like it, just take a picture of it

I have a PDF catalog from 2005 that still has these in it.
