220-240volt fluorescent bulbs??

Does anyone know of anyplace that sells 220-240v compact fluorescent bulbs? I'm going to shoot in Europe and was thinking of using fluorescent lights, but I can't find anyplace that sells them at 220-240 volts.

Hi Stephen.........

I suggest you leave that purchase till you get where you're going - unless you're looking for a very special type, CFL's can be bought cheap at any supermarket in Europe, and even special types (specific colour temp, for example) should be pretty easy to source.

They're not the sort of thing you want rattling around in your luggage either.
