Not a place to skimp

By corky

from Portland,OR

Comments about Kino Flo True Match 21 " 55C-K32 Compact Lamp - 55W/3200K:

There are some very cheap 55w u-tubes as an alternative to Kino's but they break easier, have weak connectors that become loose, but most importantly, vary in color from tube to tube.
Not the case with Kino-flo lamps.

    Comments about Kino Flo True Match 21 " 55C-K32 Compact Lamp - 55W/3200K:

    These look great and dim well! I've been using them for about 10 years and have had very few issues. I've used other brands, but the colors weren't as true. Kino is the way to go!

    OK, but...

    By Pappa

    Comments about Kino Flo True Match 21 " 55C-K32 Compact Lamp - 55W/3200K:

    I have a Kino Diva and a 30 x 30 soft box with a Lowel Tota as the source light. I love my Kino and it is convenient in the sense that you can do daylight or tungsten but the Kino tungsten bulbs don't even closely match the tungsten fixture. It's not a problem since I don't ever use them at the same time but I was surprised at how different they looked. The Kino bulbs are much more magenta in color.

          CRI, color and output are all great. Would buy again.

            Color rendering is excellent at full power. Definitely a color shift when dimming. More noticeable than with the k56 tubes. That said, they are excellent in a diva 401. Highly recommend.

                These worked great on my Diva-Lite. The color looks good. I did notice a slight color shift that added some magenta when they were dimmed but I imagine I would get that with any lamp.

                    We received a number of lamps for our Diva. 1 was damaged during shipping. We B&H an image of the damaged bulb and without hesitation they sent us a new one and arrived within 5 days.Really efficient and fast. On top of it, the Diva puts out a good amount of light with the bulbs; just as one would expect from Kino Flo!

                        Works as expected. I haven't gotten through the first 100 hrs. of burn time. But they work well and are easy to switch out with the 5500K bulbs on location.

                        I use lots of different types of Kino Flo products and the ONLY reason I gave this 4 stars is that I'm not a huge fan of the Diva Bulbs in general as they don't come in safety coated versions and they are more delicate when removing bulbs. I much prefer the SC 4 bank bulbs (2 thru 8 ft) But...The color temp of these is just as good and the output is surprisingly high!! So from a quality of product for actual use it's a 5 star, but design compared to their other products...4 Star.

                          I use these lamps in my Kino Flo 400s when shooting in tungsten lit environments. They blend extremely well, even when dimmed, to give scenes a natural appearance.

                            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.

                            Nice color, but I do wish they could make these more durable. I had to replace 6 bulbs thanks to the TSA.
