Product photography lighting tips: Another new way to shape light in the studio

We finally got the right EKE bulb for our Nikon Mark II Fiber Optic Light, and its really cool. The fiber optic light with its flexible 'arms' is perfect for precise lighting. And its fast, really fast, to setup a nice small set. 

We seem to be building a rather unique 3250k lighting set here in the studio now that we have the fiber optic light working, and color matched to our new favorite microscope light. I find that I have never disliked a Nikon product including these old lights. Working with these lights is quick, and stable, and a lot of fun.  

The image of the Praktiflex at bottom was taken with only the new Nikon light, and you can see the unit itself in the background of the setup picture.
