Hey Matt,

Just to echo what Todd said, having a fixture that can "switch-hit"...either tungsten or daylight... is a real time saver. With a Kino type fixture as a key light, you can go into say an office and be able very quickly (with a bulb change) to go daylight or tungsten. They (flourescents) also have the advantages of steep fall-off (don't pollute the backround), low energy requirements, low heat output, flattering / soft light, and are dimmable. Mole makes some nice units that are comparable with the Kinos, and there are cheaper, knock-off models out there as well.
