|Daylight Company: Professional Artist Lamp|
I've used The Daylight Company's daylight bulbs for years (even to the point of favouring art stores which stock them!). This particular lamp is one I had already highlighted on my Art Equipment - Resources for Artists website - purely on the basis of my experience of their product quality over the years.
I was really interested to see what an American artist made of the lamp. The important point is that Jana is a person who is most concerned about having good light
I’d bought and returned many other “full spectrum” or “daylight bulb” lamps in the past that were total failures because the light was too weak, too blue, or both.It's very evident that Jana is very impressed!
Hence I've created a summary review below based on:
- the technical product specification and
- the review done by Jana Bouc
- this is being updated as additional comments are received
- Jana's blog post for the full text of her full review Reviews: Daylight Easel Lamp and...
- plus Jana's article about lighting and color temperature.
- Plus see also Jana featured on The Daylight Company website.
