Hello,

Just trying to find information online for new and powerful enough lightbulbs for BC/B22d (22mm Bayonet Cap) and E14 (14mm Small Edison Screw) fixtures. Can anyone point me in the right direction, or offer any advice? Our location has 4 E14 fixtures in one room, and B22d fixtures in all the other rooms; none of them have lightbulbs in at the moment.

We're shooting in low-light conditions on the C300, but can't seem to find any information on lightbulbs that will be powerful enough to use as key lights in the evening dinner scenes.

Appreciate any replies,

Best

Those are low wattage bulbs. You can supplement the practical light with a chinese lantern off camera. Remember, you can always set the light level 2 stops brighter on set and darken the image in post. Thus, eliminating video sensor noise from those very low light levels, If you are determined to stick with your plan, search here for the bulbs :

Use E14 as the beginning of your search criteria.

Appreciate the reply. China balls have been something I've looked into, just trying to avoid them if I'm honest. I think a China ball w/ photo flood is the way to go through. Thank-you.
