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.

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.
Well! I ordered 2 bulbs but never got them!! Buyers Beware!! I paid shipping on this order but never got the products! Wrote to Adorama direct and never got a response BACK!!!!
No problems, bulb works well and does the job it's made to do.
In real life I thought a little pricy but in the world of photo a bargain , laugh out loud.
I use this product for portraits. I Have had no problems with it.
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.
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.
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.
