An enclosed darkroom lamp fitted with a filter to screen out light rays to which film and paper are sensitive. Light source consisting of housing, lamp and screen of a colour that will not affect the photographic material in use. Safelight screens are available in various colours and sizes for specific applications.
The special darkroom lamp used to create minimal illumination without fogging sensitised materials.
a special lamp that emits only those frequencies to which paper is not sensitive
A red, orange or yellow light used in the darkroom for black and white photographic printing.
A darkroom light fitted with a filter to absorb light rays to which film is sensitive.
A special darkroom lamp used for illumination without fogging sensitized materials.
A lamp, typically in a darkroom, that allows a person to view light-sensitive material without it being altered by the light. The lamp is generally coated with or enclosed in a partially-translucent filter that screens out light rays to which the film or paper are sensitive.
In photography, the special darkroom lamp used for illumination without fogging sensitised materials.
Lamp used for illumination of a darkroom without affecting light-sensitive materials.
A red or orange darkroom light that black and white photo papers aren't sensitive too.
A lamp used in a darkroom that doesn't affect sensitized materials.
Orange or red light used in a darkroom.Gives out light of a wavelength to which photographics paper is relatively insensitive. Safelights are not actually safe. Leave paper exposed to a " safe " light close enough or for long enough and the paper will fog.
Safelight is light used in a photographic darkroom and is designed to provide illumination without that part of the light spectrum to which the material in use is sensitive. A safelight usually consists of an ordinary lightbulb in a housing with a coloured filter, but it is possible to buy special bulbs and fluorescent tubes which are coated with a filter directly on the glass.
