Too expensive, unless it is a gel filter, and then, too nutsy. If you
have a camera, get an 80B hard filter - glass, or even a cokin, and cut
it down (There are some camera shows around and I can pick up various
plastic Cokin filters for a buck each.

I REALLY like the Tiffen Compact florescents. Built a "salad" bowl light
with them (three porcelain fixtures built into a metal salad bowl for a
reflector. Daylight balanced (or close enough) and fairly high CRI - I
think they say 93. Also they flicker at 25,000 hz, so they are pretty
flicker free. Tiffen makes a few different wattages, ecven a 150 watt
(HUGE) but think of it like a 500 watt photo flood, dayligh balanced,
and only using 150 watts, and a lot less heat.
Beware though, I did try to buy them from B and H and they did
substitute another bulb because they were out, so make SURE it says TIFFEN.
