            This is a replacement flashtube for most Quantum flash units. It is large, heavty duty, easily handled without worry about contamination causing the tube to break when it ignites.

            Comments about Quantum Instruments QF30 Flashtube:

            I use my Quantum thousands of times every week. Decided it was time to keep a backup in the case. Beautiful light from this tube. You do have a backup bulb don't you?

              We needed to replace a bulb after the wind knocked over our Q flash while working outside. The flash survived the crash fine, but not the bulb.

                I have the Quantum Qflash Trio unit. Am very happy with it as it's reliable and consistant with it's results. I simply wanted a back up bulb for my unit just in case something happened, I would have a backup. I ordered from B&H Photo whom I've used over the years. They are fast, reliable and have the best prices... very happy with them.

                    As indicated, I use this bulb with my Quantum T2 flash head. I had used the same tube for over 15 years until I dropped the head and shattered the original bulb. This was a replacement and I was able to pick up right were I left off. There has been no difference in color quality or output. Great bulb. Great system.

                            I purchased a used Qflash as a part of my custom portable strobe kit I use for editorial photographic work and although I had spare flash tubes for my custom bare bulb Vivitar 285's, the tubes I have don't fire when used with the Qflash. I never go on a shoot without having a spare tube - no matter what.

                              I purchased the Quantum Trio for my Canon camera and I have never been happier. I just fear that with all the use I get, the bulb will burn out in the middle of a wedding or important event... so I purchased this spare bulb. I had no need to use it yet so I have not tested it but knowing the QFlash quality, I know I am in for a quality product.

                                I bought the flashtube to replace the one in my Quantum T5DR. They last forever and are extremely durable. I'm rough with my equipment and have never had a problem with the flashtubes.

                                  I've been a photographer since 1981 and I shoot everything from magazine stories, weddings, grand openings, wildlife, scenic and I always use a Quantum over my SB800. I would give the QF30 bulb 5 stars if it were $35, but if you are a photographer for hire you have to have a spare. The bulbs last a very long time, but are breakable. If shooting film consider the QF30UV but with digital it is simple to color correct in post.

                                      Comments about Quantum Instruments QF30 Flashtube:

                                      I have a Q Flash Model T5D-R and these lights are easy to install, do not heat up, and produce this wonderful light that evenly falls on my subjects.

                                      I do not have an accurate knowledge of how long they last, I have only had 10 photo-sessions with this "bad boy", I'll eventually let you know when it burns out or breaks.
