    Seems to work just fine as a replacement in my Lowel video light kit. Bought a few extra as back-ups (since the original blew on location and I stupidly didn't have a backup). Color and temp seem to be about the same as the original bult that came with the kit.

    2 blown in 1 week!

    Just bought and already had 2 bulbs blow. I think it may be how they sit inside the omnis.

    It fits into the Lowel kit properly and has no issue regarding strobing or brightness. Not sure how long it'll last, but it got through a day long shoot.

                These lights work well. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I wish they came in daylight balanced!

                    Though a simple light bulb it seems to be durable. Dropped it, it landed on a box before hitting the floor and it still works. Impressive..

                                                      Great for use in the studio or outdoors as indirect lighting.

                                                        Seems to work just fine as a replacement in my Lowel video light kit. Bought a few extra as back-ups (since the original blew on location and I stupidly didn't have a backup). Color and temp seem to be about the same as the original bult that came with the kit.
