Spare Lamps

I bought these as spares for my newly purchased Smith Victor KT1000, 2 Light 1000 watt Thrifty Photoflood Intermediate Kit with Umbrellas. I haven't used them, but the ones that came with the lamps are great, so I expect these will be too.

Horrible

I purchased 4 of these bulbs and 3 of the 4 have blown out after less than a few hours of use each. 2 of the 4 produced a horrible smell of burning metal when turned on for more than 5 minutes. That horrible smell filled the entire studio making it impossible for me to shoot anymore photos. Horrible experience and product.

Blew out quickly.

By

from Pringle, PA  -  Pro Photographer

I bought four of these bulbs to go with the smith victor flood lamps. They are rated for 60 hours, but I got about 2.5 hours out of them before they blew out. I replaced one of the bulbs and it blew out immediately. So I bought four bulbs thinking I would get 240 hours out them them and got 2.5 instead. I'm not happy.

Busted Bulb

By

from Houston, TX  -  Casual Photographer

First bulb blew due to faulty socket. Adorama replaced socket set and bulb in a short period of time. Customer service was excellent.

Good ! ECT PhotoFlood Lamp 500w 120v

By

from Astoria, NY  -  Pro Photographer

I am a Portrait Photographer This Bulb is suitable for indoor shooting and bright enough for Portrait. However it is easily getting hot so that I have to be careful all the time. In average, ECT PhotoFlood Lamp 500w 120v is great for casual and semi-pro shooting.

I was looking for some replacement bulbs & I found these to be a great match to what I had been using, AND they ended up being a great value. Win Win!

Terrible lifespan

By

from Charlotte  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I'd be lying if I said these were good for anything. Terrible lifespan (first bulb died after 2 hours of use). Already looking for replacements for the others even though they haven't died yet. Not daylight corrected. Seriously it's just a big ordinary light bulb. I'm sure to find some decent replacements at [...].

Depends on what your looking for...

By

from detroit, michigan  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought the light to add in to my hot light setup. Same wattage and color temp, thought it would fit right in. Unfortunately I didn't consider the diffusion of a regular size bulb compared to the other lights in my system. So as a result this particular light is about 2 stops darker than the other 3... not what I had i mind and too hot to get a good working distance from subject. Depending on your needs, it may be a great light. I just didn't think it all the way through.
