Cool running light for still life

Use the cool running lights for heat sensitive still life products and "no sweat" portraits. I use several at a time with a diffuser for soft lighting. I don't know about lifetime yet, but I wish they were slightly smaller. A plus is amount of light without blowing fuses, but I am not sure the output is quite as high as advertised.

Good light - not durable

Great light, but bulbs started to fail quickly. First came the smoke, then the buzz, then complete failure... upon inspection, the interior wiring is poor - and the end of one light stuck in the light box, leaving me holding just the glass.

Works as expected


from Lexington, MN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This light works just as described. It's fine for dark locations and if you have the light close to your subject. But if its a fairly well lit space, or you need your light farther away from your subject, you may need something brighter than this. Be aware that it does dim or start to flicker over time. This was a replacement lamp to one that came with a kit that is starting to flicker and is fairly dim.

I would buy this product again.


from South Amboy, NJ  -  Casual Photographer

I use this product for portraits. I Have had no problems with it.


Good bulb a little pricey


from Washington State  -  Pro Photographer

It sure beats normal room lights. Even though I've replaced all my house bulbs with 14W 5500K flourescent bulbs there is still not enough light for good indoor photography. I use this bulb in two white reflecting umbrellas for fill in light plus two shop lights each with two 14w 5500K flourescent bulbs.


Spiral Flurescent Bulb: a problem


from Jacksonville, FL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I got to use the bulb twice. It lost power after two hours, the second time, and when I unscrewed it, the bulb shattered. I need the powerful light to illuminate jewelry for sale. The flashpoint kit with the bulb came recommended to me by a professional photographer, so I had high expectations that weren't met.


Reasonably priced


from central valley, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Very useful for newborn photography lighting when natural light is too dim. Pro: does not flash bright light into newborns eyes.

Great light, but bulbs started to fail quickly. First came the smoke, then the buzz, then complete failure... upon inspection, the interior wiring is poor - and the end of one light stuck in the light box, leaving me holding just the glass.

Questions about this item:

Phil W  how do you get this into the softbox receptacle?
STEVEN L R  I have the Flashpoint Softbox, not sure what you are using. If it is the Flashpoint you may be have trouble with assembling the softbox. You need to make sure the "spoke ring" is down as far as it will go over the socket. At times it can be really hard to do. They need to change how that works. Place a both thumbs on both side of ring and force down with equal pressure until the ring seats down around the socket. It may take some time or the ring will flip from side to side. It will go all the way down. The base of the bulb is pretty big and until the ring goes all the way down the bulb base will hit the ring. Again, the wire spokes that force the softbox out want to go in different directions until you push down with equal pressure. For direct help, steve@joplincc.com
Phil W  Great desrciption - I did as you advised and it works! Thank you so much!
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DAVID P  Provides a good match for the softboxes. I purchased an extra for a spare in case of a broken bulb.
