Recommended Illumination: Solux Lamps
To provide the best illumination currently available to view your fine art photograph collection we recommend using SoLux™ lamps.
SoLux is a patented low voltage light source that emits a beam very close to natural daylight. These bulbs provide optimal color rendering for the viewing fine art. Another critical quality is that these lamps have ultra-low ultraviolet and infrared radiation which will protect your archival photograghs.
One source of 12 volt MR16 Solux lamps for viewing these works is soluxlamps.com . Lamps listed on this site that are below 50 watts use the standard low-voltage two pin base (GU5.3). These lamps typically are priced $4 to $6 per bulb and have a life of 3000 hours.
