Fluorescent bulbs umbrella mount/holder
 
I'm looking for a head that will hold at least 4 fluorescent bulbs. I already have a lightstand and an umbrella but am having trouble finding brackets to mount the bulbs to the light stand with the umbrella.

This is the best I could find: Photo Lamp Bulb Holder 4 x E27 Socket Umbrella Bracket on eBay.ca (item 330503436592 end time 31-Jan-11 01:17:45 EST)

Any other recommendations?
Need something that will work with North American standards.

Other option I was looking at was a twin holder with stronger bulbs
Twin holder: Twin Lamp Bulb Holder E27 Socket Flash Umbrella Bracket on eBay.ca (item 330492298012 end time 01-Feb-11 08:22:17 EST)
Bulbs: CL-20032 Cool Lights 200w 3200K High CRI 8U Softbox Bulb - Cool Lights USA

Colin, this might be a little late... but I bought these lights the other day off some dudes on ebay - and they seem to have all sorts of things people want, and what I would consider pretty good dolermo$.

Shop eBay Canada Store - stylist store:: Umbrella Kit, Flash Accessories

Not an ad, I haven't got them yet - but looking forward to it... I am shooting video but it wouldn't matter other than oscillation - of which they state they are flicker free... we will see.

Anyway, just sharing (I found them by typing in 'video light' on ebay).

Good hunting.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for your reply. Yes, it is too late. I ended up getting a Lowel kit. But I'm sure someone else will find it usefull down the road!
