            Buy a 15 watt bulb, it doesn't come with one. Works great.

              Comments about Yankee Darkroom Safelight:

              I have a gang darkroom with multiple printing rooms, with two of these safelights on fixtures about 8ft from the ground in each room. They're about 6ft away from any working space.

              Coupled with any 15watt safelight bulb, it provides a lot of illumination. I use both frosted and regular bulbs, and they work perfectly fine. Provided amber filter is good for my Ultrafine and Ilford papers.

              I've got no complaints. These safelights are great.

              Comments about Yankee Darkroom Safelight:

              The best thing about this safelight is the price. I haven't found anything nearly as cheap. I have a home darkroom and it works very well for what I need it to do. With that said, be very careful with how hot the plastic exterior gets and make sure that there is air circulating around it. I made that mistake when I put it in a potlight recess (the plastic does melt very quickly).

              Does not take 5.5" filters

              By DeWayne Carver

              from Tallahassee FL

              Comments about Yankee Darkroom Safelight:

              The item description is in error. This safelight does not take 5.5 filters, it takes 4.5 filters, so the Kodak filters will not work with this light. Also, it ships with only one filter, not two.

              Problems Encountered: I purchased this light and a Kodak 5.5 filter, because the item description said it takes 5.5 filters. In fact, it takes 4.5 filters. This is annoying, because now I have to ship the light back and I have an expensive Kodak filter with no safelight!

              Previous Equivalent Items Owned: An older Yankee safelight, with 4.5 filters, that is identical to this one.

              Items I Recommend: Kodak safelight instead of this one.
