What item is right for you?

Ask our Experts!

Most current, professional flash heads and monolights are equipped with user replaceable flashtubes that may simply be plugged into, and unplugged from their sockets. With proper handling, these flashtubes may last for tens of thousands of flashes under normal use.

This flashtube is UV-Coated, or UV-Corrected. UV flashtubes have a yellow appearance, and they counteract the excess blue 5700° or higher output of non-UV coated flashtubes. UV Coating lowers the color temperature to 5500°, which is the color of noon daylight on a clear day.

            • General Use

            Comments about Norman FT-400 400w/s UV Flashtube:

            If these heat up too much, the flash tube glass crazes and they lose pressure and quit working. Repeated full-power operation or constrictive light modifiers make this much worse. This means reflectors, gels or any other "insulating" cover.
            Color is fairly neutral and not too UV-heavy.

            works good, but doesn't last very long

            Comments about Norman FT-400 400w/s UV Flashtube:

            We use them in our Norman 400B flash heads. They work good but seem to crack easy. We have also blown several in the past 6 months.

            Comments about Norman FT-400 400w/s UV Flashtube:

            Surprisingly durable and very efficient light output. Only drawback: there is no index mark on the base to help you orient the four pins for correct insertion into the lamp receptacle. It's hit or miss, and danged if I don't miss it until the fourth and last try every time...
