25 - None. By the time they get to the bulb there will be a newer one with better high ISO  noise control.

Daylight or Tungsten?

Why change the lightbulb, sunrise will come.

Dust spots, I can never get those dust motes off my light bulb.

What is the sensor factor?

How many pixels is it? Quite true for the new LED bulbs which may have 48 or more LEDs in them.

Darn, the wrong mount, and I thought I got a great eBay bargain! Yes, there are regular and candelabra screw bases to start.

I can only get 3 stops of light, I was expecting 10 stops.

Why are all the other lights in the neighborhood not working either?

This lightbulb is a small format and I only work in large format.

I can't get the perspective right on this lightbulb.

Bulbs are old technology, we use flash tubes. Note: by just flashing his flashlight someone was able to move around in a cave for almost 30 hrs on a flashlight that would have lasted just a few hours if left on all the time. From an actual cave rescue incident for a "flashlight caver."

30) Just one, with the clone tool, to clone in a working light bulb from another image...

31) In the long tradition of western art exploring the nexus between humans and light fittings, I announce the completion of my seminal installation "The unchanged lightbulb"  at the recently refurbished Theodore gallery. Here I our explore our almost organic relationship to art, where viewer and viewed, subject and object, seek unity and enlightenment in an environment devoid of functioning illumination.
A limited edition of signed fine art glicees on archival paper detailing this work will be available for a very reasonable $39.95 from the lighting department at a hardware store near you.

32. None. Just ask Ms Campbell, Moss et al  to hold it in the air and the world will revolve around them.

Seeking an answer to "How many photographers does it take to change a lightbulb?" I dashed out and took a small survey. Here are the answers to date:
1)What is it's colour temperature? What operating system is it running on?
2)This whole question is just another ego trip.
3)The real problem is that the lightbulb reacts badly to criticism.
4)It's the tone of the lightbulb I don't like.
5)Nothing personal, but what do you know about lightbulbs?
6)My mother's aunt had a lightbulb just like it, and it didn't need changing.
7)It's NOT the bulb you utter and complete idiot, it's the person switching it on.
8)None, anyone can fix it in Photoshop.
I would welcome other answers to this thorny problem. Regards, David

It's probably your error.  Why are you trashing the manufacturer!
