For a small home studio lighting setup, I have concluded that softboxes with clf bulbs or LED panels would be adequate.
But clf bulbs contain mercury, and even though it is a small amount, accidents tent to happen.
On the other hand, I have read that LED lights are bad for eyes. I don't conclude related links because I think that you all have heard of that. If so, does the quality of the bulb has to do something with that? That is because I intend to buy some Chinese ones, I can't afford anything else.
Are all these issues real or myth? Any thoughts or alternative suggestions would be appreciated.
P.S. I am interested in 5600K bulbs.
