I'm planning to get a colour checker to profile a new camera but all the advice is that one shot should be taken under tungsten light. We haven't had tungsten bulbs for years and it's now illegal to sell them here, so can anyone suggest an alternative?

Thanks in advance.

What country are you in?

Most countries had some specific exceptions for use cases like this...  (Albeit bulbs falling under the exception are NOT cheap...)
