EL Panels for Flats

Just curious what other users thoughts are of the EL Panels for taking flats?
A few questions before I pull the wallet out.

  • Do you find it has a good even illumination?
  • Good enough by itself without an overlayed diffused sheet on top?
  • Worth the money?
  • Where did you purchase your panel from?

Just received my A3 EL Panel.
Apart from it being nice and bright, the contact the applied has air bubbles in it that annoy me straight away.

Did others also receive theirs with air bubbles noticeable under the contact?

If this is common and doesnt cause any problem with flats I won't worry, otherwise I'll be contacting them this week regarding shonky craftsmanship.

EDIT: May actually use a diffuse sheet on top to evenly illuminate the area.. hmm
