    Yankee SL-3 reviews

    Darkroom Safelight is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not take 5.5 filters 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you're in the dark 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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good price - low melting point 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).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Case is thin. I really don't get why they make the case so thin that you can see the �light glow through it. Even if you have the right filter its no use. It will fog your paper. If your planning to buy one i suggest paint the outer case black with a lot of layers so that the light can't just seep through the case. Its just better to buy the metal rectangle safelight casings which I did (no more fogging)
