Lumens depends on reflector used

To answer a potential buyer's question, Lumens versus effective Lumens towards your subject is quite complicated, the biggest factor being the shape and reflectence of the reflector you use. A simple wattage caculation would put this at around 4,000 lumens but you could focus this light by using a parabolic reflector, either the cheap ones from a hardware store, the larger cloth soft boxes without the diffusion cloth, etc. Just buy it and try it. Experimentation is half of the fun of photo...

Not as much light as they should be

I purchased four of these lamps. They are advertised as 225w equivalent, however in a side-by-side comparison they were less bright than the CFL 100w equivalent lamps I purchased at OSH. Thank you for taking them back, Adorama. I'm trying to decide whether or not try another four.

Don't Always Fit

By

These will not fit in older Smith Victor (yellow)lamp reflectors so I was not able to use them.

Thirty dollars less than local store!!

By

Shipping was very fast. Sales person helped out greatly suggesting other item as substitute for OOS item same price. Local shops had this identical item/brand selling at $35-$40ea I forgot what I paid Adorama, but was somewhere about $6.95. They work just fine and the item got here the next day!!!

great supplemental lighting for videos

By

Great supplemental daylight source when used with the inexpensive ($ 15) clamp on reflectors from a hardware store. Be sure to manually adjust your white balance, as with any light source. I would also suggest using masking or gaffer's tape to secure the clamps. By only using 20% of the electricity of incandescent lights, they run cooler and won't overload your electrical circuits. All CFL bulbs are fragile so use care to avoid dropping them.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Colton M  Will this fit the Smith Victor A80?
Robin M  The short answer is yes. This CFL is designed for short neck reflectors. Don't own the A80 but a similar. Problem for some is it will extend a ways past the edge of the reflector. Use it for a soft box and no problem with the extension and will be true for any reflector designed for incandescent. There is a version shaped like a mushroom for these reflectors but more expensive and never saw any need.
Colton M  Thank you!
DasBurschlein .  What is the lumen output for this bulb?
Andrew R  Unfortunately the lumen output is not specified.
Shopper  A lot of important information are missing: Liftine: 8.000 hours? Compliance RoHS? CRI? No noise and no flicker? Use onli with 110v or even 240v? CE certificed? For continous light?
EDWARD C  Lifetime is extensive. Advertised as 8-10k hours. No noise and no flicker 110v only For continuous light Daylight balanced
