Excellent Service. The Store Manager was very helpful. They even opend a set and took out this lamp from it for me, since they did not have any in stock. WILL ONLY BUY FROM THEM.
Great light - use it my 10'x20' home studio. I use two of these for a color balanced, pleasant continual lighting setup to eliminate the squinting reflex a direct flash might otherwise cause.
I bought 6 of these to go in the Linco Flora. The bulbs and base are very large and just barely fit. The color appears to be a good match to daylight and is close to the rated 5500K. Overall, it appears to be a good light and for quite a bit less than some of the other manufacturers are charging. The output is great and six of these together really light up a room. Still no comparison to flash, but impressive for a continuous light source and more than adequate for video. Now for the negative. One of the six lights was dead on arrival. Since the packaging protects the bulbs well and there is no sign of abuse, I can only conclude it is a manufacturer defect. No surprise there, but I am surprised that Adorama will not ship a replacement! Instead they make me use the JTL warranty. They say this is stated in the Adorama return policy, though it is not shown on the product page. Be warned. Footnote: The Flashpoint bulbs are a bit cheaper and are probably about the same. Adorama does not state the CRI, which is why I went with the JTL.
These bulbs stay cool to the touch after being on for hours. I use these with a portable JTL three-light system for location portraits. Very pleased. Great price.
