      I used these to shoot a scene in a diner, which was lit from one side with huge windows facing the street. The light from these bulbs blended perfectly with natural daylight.

        Fits my impact readycool

        Comments about Kino Flo True Match Compact Lamp - 55W/5500K - 21":

        I bought this bulb to replace a broken one in my impact readycool lamp. The bulb is slightly longer than the original osram bulbs that came with the light. However it fits just fine and the daylight balanced light matches the other bulbs.

          Comments about Kino Flo True Match Compact Lamp - 55W/5500K - 21":

          I chose Kino Flo fixtures that use this bulb because this size is easier to get on an airplane and in/out of the car BUT the performance of this type bulb is beyond anything else of this size. I have a few Diva Light 401s and I will stick to those, the Parabeam or the Imara because of the output of this bulb compared to any others.

              Bought these to use with my flolights. They take a little extra second to reach full brightness but color temperature is perfect and even. Way better and even cheaper price than the bulbs that come with the flolights.

                I was using a cheaper set of lights for my video and photography cause that's all I could afford... I finally saved up and got a Kino 400 light kit and I couldn't be happier. Great quality, great lighting!

                        Not much to say about a bulb, but they're great. They put out a lot of light, they don't make a lot of heat, and they're as accurate as bulbs come. I'm happy with making my switch from tungsten to daylight. I'm never looking back.

                            I use these lamps in my Kino Flo Diva-Lite, and I love the soft, even, quality light these lamps provide. They are lightweight and durable (if protected during travel), a cinch to install, and provide consistent output and longevity.

                              Comments about Kino Flo True Match Compact Lamp - 55W/5500K - 21":

                              Still the most used, most dependable light in any kit.
                              If one has to choose only one light, location or studio, it's Kino Flo.
                              I've taken to using the 5500K bulbs and adding gels to alter color temp.

                                I use these bulbs in my Kino Flo 400s. They give me clean, soft, daylight balanced light. Works great when mixing with existing daylight conditions.

                                  It's hard to find good compact lamps. They either overheat or burnout too quickly. This compact lamp does neither, providing crisp lighting to any type of shoot.
