This is a Kino Flo 4' Kino 800ma KF55 SFC True Match Fluorescent Lamp. The True Match Series of lamps has been produced to meet the high standards of both film and digital media. They are unique in their design since they are manufactured to synch with the precise spectral sensitivity of these media. Using this lamp negates the need of having to guess at the color temperature or scramble for the proper lighting filtration. The Safety Coating on this lamp serves to reduce scatter of glass in event of tube breakage.

For the last 20 years, Kino Flo has led the field in solving lighting issues for the film and video industry. Their high-output but cool fluorescent fixtures are now an industry standard on production stages around the world.

Note! High Output is the term to describe lamps that burn at a higher than Standard (std) lamp current. Normal lamps burn between 280-320ma. High Output lamps operate at or above 800ma. Anything above 1500ma is referred to as Very High Output.

Energy efficient design means less need to change lamps often which means less expense on your part - both for replacement and electricity charges
Irrespective of size, the color temperature remains constant
Lamps are manufactured to remain cool and stable - edge to edge consistency of light

    These are the industry standard daylight bulb for Kinoflo fixtures. Don't get the 900ma - which were created for closed fixtures and installations (ie reality shows and long-term use). Those have a lot of magenta in them - that will decrease as they get hot. These are just a wee-bit green, but nothing that shows up on anything but the Alexa. And even then, it's such a small amount that there's no gel that's light enough to correct it.

    Great for our green key studio

    I like the 32s better than the 55s. The 55s do not seem to give as nice of a light.

      These bulbs match daylight really well, use less electricity, and don't cook the talent. I'm very happy with them.

              these are a must for daylight shooting, or indoor where you can gel for tungsten with less light loss than gelling tungsten to CTB. definite for on-location work.

                                  Brightness and a color are stable and it is very recommendation.

                                    These are very nice lamps.

                                    Of 12 I ordered, one arrived broken. Because of the coating, the glass was fully contained within the coating.
