Thanks for clearing that up, I'll just get the black Solux bulbs then. The one thing I'm trying to figure out is this lamp that you have looks like it clamps to a wall. I'm looking for something that clamps to my desk. I guess if I buy an optional clamp, it would work on my desk?
No idea... The standard clamp is made to clamp onto things like table tops and the display units typically seen at arts & crafts shows. My desktop is a very long custom unit attached to the wall and it has enough of an overhang to clamp onto. The lamp shines down onto the desk surface. I believe that company also has conventional standing desk lamps and floor lamps which have the correct MR16 sockets to accept the Solux bulbs. All at much less than the equivalent fixture bought directly from Solux.
Actually, I bought a couple Solux bulbs and then went shopping for a lamp fixture. I'm sure if the included bulb was a Solux, they'd tell you in bold print!
One more question... Not sure what "beam spread" to order on the Solux bulbs.... 10, 17, 24 or 36. I think the biggest print I'll be looking at is like an 8x12. Any advice on beam spread would help.
I'm using the 35 watt, 4700K, 24 degree bulb and it seems to work well for me. I have mine about 5 feet from my monitor and it doesn't throw any light on the screen that I can tell. (I also have a ghetto homemade matte black hood on my monitor)
