I went to order a macro new lens for my Canon T6 DSLR, Well I found out that my funky home made copy stand would not work well with a larger lens due to the increased distance I would need to shoot at. This meant I needed a new taller stand. Well instead of trying to make another one I broke down and ordered one.

I currently use 2 Jansjo Goose Neck Desk Lamps for lighting but the copy stand also come with 2 light fixtures that can take bulbs up to 300W Photo flood lights. Should I bother trying to get some bulbs for these or will my Jansjos work just as well?

Here is the stand I ordered.



Any and all advice welcome.

Thanks...Mont.

This is how I understand it; a professional will be be by sometime to either correct or confirm me.

You probably want something labeled "Daylight" or "Natural Daylight" or 5000k to 5500k.
Basically a bulb that mimics sunlight, i.e., ALL colors.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

This is listed on Ebay for BIN at $219.00 OBO with free shipping. I probably paid to much by offering $200.

Thanks will look for some with 5500k.

Any suggestion on wattage? I am thinking 100 watts as 300 watts seems a little much.

I paid around $20 for a stand for my usb scope, and it was not much better then the one it came with.
