AC powered LED bulbs…

I just received two 6 watt, 3 LED bulbs that I ordered off eBay, one plain white and the other warm white.  There are other options in E27 LED bulbs, but I picked these because they had fewer high output LEDs and were directional.  The intent os to use them as video lights.

I must say that I’m impressed with the light output of the LEDs.  The bare bulbs are hard to look at directly, it definitely needs softening.

They are fairly directional but they are usable with the brackets and softboxes we have for still photography use.  Instead of putting the screw in strobe in the socket, the E27 LED screws in instead.  The inner diffuser cuts the light down significantly, so it’s probably best removed from the light path.  Either way, the light is concentrated in the middle of the softbox face (big surprise), but it does indeed soften the light.
