Halogen Work Lights?

Hi,

Can I use Halogen work lights (Home Depot,about $8/500watts) for video work? If I manually white balance for them? Where do they land in terms of color temp?

Thanks,
Josh

Re: Halogen Work Lights?

That is the deal dude . you just don't really know..

Do your thing with them.. but in many ways lighting is like dressing..can you dress your light with a lightbank? does it have color controlled bulbs?
can it take an umbrella mount?
I have found that you need to dress a light.
However I do commend your innovation..
Your bulbs now are made for wattage and may have little changes in temp.
I would guess that they are about 2900K
