I think this could be OTT LITE, let's take search on sites of your country to find out!

Yes, it is a ott lite. You can find them at craft stores. I know here in u.s. michaels and joannes fabrics carry them. Otherwise if you are looking for one that looks like it but probably isnt as good of light click on link below.

Not sure how much shipping would be to AUS, but Jo Ann Fabric - http://www.joann.com/joann/index.jsp - has them for $39.99 USD - http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.j...uestid=2351552.

There are also some knock off Ott Lites that you may also be able to pick up cheaper in your area.

Wait wait guys!
This site you are watching are selling kinds for USA, it's 120V.
But remember, Australia use 240V, so be careful.
I think in Australia has got these kinds to buy to fit 240V without need to buy AC converter.

I saw in some Australian sites, it seems OTT exists on their market.
I think James must try to find by himself in his town then try on AU sites.

James: I got mine from this place.

http://www.scissorman.com.au/product...iers/daylights.

Remember USA uses 110v, so thats no good to us, the $97 might seem steep but its definatly well worth it, I take mine everywhere, really good for races that you fly to, as its really compact and light, and throws out lots of light.

I agree 100%!! I purchased a "knock-off" and it has the same bulb as the Ott Lights. Don't waste your money on the name-brand.

Default Grading light

I believe it I called a grading light. I was looking for one of those for a long time and I finally found one. I found one at Fry's Electronics for $20. Not bad eh.
