used in studio lighting with Lowel Omni. Emits correct light K/temp for softboxes and as a small flood/ key light. Fragile at the neck where the ceramic base meets the glass. As with all Tungsten, it runs very hot--make sure if you pair this with the correct temperature softboxes if that is your intended use.

    We are a small production company and the lights that these bulbs are used in are our primary lighting for all video shoots requiring lighting. We have been happy with the product and this is my second order for these in 5 years which in my mind speaks well for their durability.

    I needed replacement bulbs for my Lowel Omni lights, and these worked great. I've gotten them in the past, and will continue to do so until I eventually get rid of the Lowels.The only negative (although it's not the bulb's fault) is that these bulbs get very hot. Definitely something to consider for your on-camera talent.

            The 500w lamps only last a few hours or days in Omni lights before going out.

                        I do a lot of shoots and use my Lowell light kit on occasion. I bought this lamp as a backup, but I haven't had to change my lamps for a few years. I use my lights for about an hour maybe once a month, so I'm not using them too often but they've lasted for years. Impact works great and will last a long time. I have had them on all day for longer shoots and they never fail me.

                          These are standard in my bags and I always keep at least one, if not two, spares in my bag at all times. Just remember to not touch the glass portion of the bulb - that will reduce its life.

                                    Comments about Impact FTK Lamp (500W, 120V):

                                    Replacement bulbs for back up. Have not had to use yet, as my current bulbs (these same ones) only have about 10 hrs on them.
