    We use this in one of older Tungsten Lowell lamps.

    Great output, gets hot as hell, and you never want to touch the bulb with your bare finger during installation or the oil from your finger will be a focal point for heat and it will explode.

    More and more we are moving toward an all LED set of lights, but this will last thru many productions and it's cheap when compared to most production gear.

        Recently bought several of these lamps to replace some other brands we had purchased that burned out after only a few uses. We'll see how these stand up.

        Sure there are less expensive options, but I've found they either don't fit quite right or are more prone to explosive failures. I'm going to stick with quality.

                Ushio bulbs just seem to last longer. To me they're worth an extra buck or 2.

                        We use this lamp for recording research participants to enable coding of facial expressions of emotion. The lamp is bright and easy to install, but the downside is that it does not last very long. The first one I used blew after less than 30 hours in use.
