Magnifying light with the round florescent light are nice BUT will show the colors wrong unless you can get the studio light tube that has outdoor like colors. Studio bulbs do come in 4 foot tubes and are much brighter also. I do use them.  I don't know about incandescent bulbs when it comes to showing true color. Someone else can chime in on that. Carl

Carl, I think you need to be conscious of that and that's a good point. But, as long as you remember that colors will be slightly different I don't see it being much of an issue. Colors used will be mixed and checked outside of the magnifying area prior to using...

I have jeweler buddy that got me one about nine years ago
Kind like the optivisor but the lenses are glass
Was very pricey but you get what you pay for
I would suggest checking with a local jeweler

I love mine
