      what kind of cheap fluorescent lights can I buy and WHERE that are daylight balanced, and bright enough to make a soft box out of. I notice these types of lights come in all sizes and shapes. I would want the tube type to be not longer than, say 24 inches (or shorter) or I could use the coil looking shape perhaps or round ????? I don’t know…

      HELP ! !

      Try the Sylvania website. They have some bulbs that are 5600 degrees kelvin (essentially matching daylight). Something to keep in mind though is the ballasts for the bulbs. They should be flicker free ballasts, and if you want to be able to hook them up to a dimmer you will need special ballasts for that too. The ballasts could cost 4 times more than the bulbs , or even more.

      Good luck
