Great lights ... when they work

By

from Rhode Island  -  Pro Photographer

These bulbs are great, especially for the price ... when they work. I ordered 20 of them and found 6 were DOA. Thankfully Adorama has a good return policy, but it seems you are running a game of chance. When you win (when they work) it's great. When you loose, you get nothing.

It's about service

By

from The Woodlands, TX  -  Pro Photographer

I bought 3 of these lights to replace 3 that got damaged. When the package arrived I tested each of them and one did not work. I called Adorama to let them know and they sent another bulb to replace the defective one. You can get the bulb in many places but to know you are backed if something is wrong -and at very competitive prices, is why I buy through Adorama.

An OK bulb

By

from Erie, PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I used these for studio and on site videography. Like any CFL, they take a few minutes to reach max brightness. Even at a warm room temp (75F). I bought 4 of these and 4 alzo 85 watt CFLs at the same time. The flashpoints (FPs) are just about identical to the alzo in size. Color wise, the alzo are superior. The cri isn't listed on these FPs, I suspect it is around 85, possibly less. The alzos are 91 cri. It definately shows. (I'm not a big fan of the CRI system because of the way it's rated but its the only color rating system that I know of.) The alzos do have a slight blue tint compared to the FPs. I havn't done RAW shooting with a grey card but plan to soon. I haven't done any light metering but they appear the same brightness. It would be interinsting to know the acutal power draw for each bulb. The FPs are a little cheaper, and have come down since I bought them a few weeks ago. I would say these have a ok color and are bright, there may be better options. They are worth the $$
