Thread: Lighting and Magnification

    hello

    @sprouts thanks for the link, never considered amazon
    @shane, exactly the same as I'm using now, assuming yours has led lighting?

    Seems like the optivisor is a front runner then, I have two desk lamps that I'm using at the moment 1 with a fluro tube and the other with led lighting array. I generally wont paint at night because I feel painting under lights is putting additional strain on my crappy eyesight even though there is plenty of light. Obviously I'm lucky to be able to paint during the day but this wont last so I need to think about a better night painting setup.

    cheers

    Yeah, many people notice this. It's due to bad ballasts, bad bulbs, bad electricity, badly matched tubes/bulbs-ballasts, transformers not being on long enough etc. Your eyes are fine, but your equiment is oldskool, or simply the usual mainstream mass market stuff. Modern digital ballasts have cycles in the tens of thousands of HZ. There's not much chance of us ever being distracted by those.

    And CRT's? People still have them? :D

    I find photographers bulbs are fine for me so don't need to worry about florescents, which is fortunate.

    We still have some CRTs at work - some of our designers use them in their monitor banks; at the sort of price you have to pay for a fully supported flatscreen with hoods etc its worth having a browser / basic programmes on a CRT while playing with pretty things on two flatscreens. These old CRTs were expensive in their day and would still give a flat screen at a few hundred quid a run at colour calibration.

    I use two flatscreens myself.

    Technology may dictate a digital world, but it is worth remembering that the natural everyday world is analogue.

    I actually preferred crt's the light and picture was softer and not sharp and angular, but then I am considered to be a bit of a tw@
