- Commonly called a "5K light", this is great for "outdoor light" for photos taken inside, this EBW lamp is the classic tool, along with a 10" aluminum reflector (and a simple mic stand for positions).- It lasts for a long time especially if you turn it off when getting ready to shoot, or re-positioning subjects.- Sometimes I need two lamps to help reduce shadows and get more evenly distributed light, so I do have two reflector/lamps at the ready.- The only drawback is that it is HOT. So it can contribute to an uncomfortable setting for the photographer and the subject unless it is turned off when not in immediate use.- B&H sells the EIKO which is my favorite, and didn't even charge shipping, which was great since it was all I needed at the time.

Good light quality but too hot

I get it that these types of bulbs get too hot but they are almost impossible to work with. Good quality of the light though.

    These lights burn fast. They also sometimes have different color tones to them. For the value though they are good.

      I have to say, this light bulb performs magnificently. When I screw it in the socket and turn on the switch, it lights up. I would be willing to give this item five stars, but I just don't know how long the bulb will stay lit.

        It runs a little hot but it's acceptable. I love the color and like to play around with it. Very powerful and seems to have a very good life span. I've used it heavily just playing around. Left it going for almost an hour.

                    This bulb is a good replacement for the PB500. I learned long ago to keep a replacement bulb for all my lights. There is nothing worse than losing a piece of gear because of something as simple as a bulb going out on your lights in the middle of a shoot.
