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

By

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.

Good bulb a little pricey

By

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

By

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

By

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.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
LEE B  Good color-balanced output at a great price.
Shopper  Diameter?
JON O  Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Busy. The largest circumference near the base is 9 inches. It'll fit a standard socket as advertised.
Phil W  how do you get this into the softbox receptacle?
CHARLES WESLEY H  Phil-- that collar MUST be pressed onto the socket to LOCK it in place and hold the assembly in the open position and form the box with taunt sidewalls. Once in place, it no longer blocks access to screw in the big bulb! The first time may take a good bit of effort to get it locked; subsequent usages become easier.
