A perfect bulb for constant (hot) light kits. Have used these floods over the past four years and they have worked out great. My use has been more weekend worrier-ish and not every day-ish, though, and I've had bulbs lasting more than three years. They are prone to blown filaments especially from movement when hot, but lesser so when cold; so 'gentle' is a good watchword when handling these bilbs.

Also, handling them with bare hands can leave sweat and body oils on the glass. This causes differential heating during use and can result in blown filaments, sometimes almost immediately after flicking the 'on' switch. So wipe them clean if you touch/install them with bare hands.

They provide adequate lighting for subjects and backgrounds, and of course, they run hot, so you have to adjust your session use to suit.

All in all, a good product at a good price. Recommended product!!

I received this lamp as a part of the Interfit Stellar Tungsten One-Light Softbox Kit. I also purchased two back ups in case there was damage during shipping. One of the bulbs did turn out to be damaged. B&H replaced it at no cost to me. However, the other two bulbs proved to be less than exceptional. After minimal use, the bulbs would burn out. I don't know if this was an issue with the fixture or if the bulbs are just inferior. I will have to do further testing to know for sure, but if you have the option...opt for a higher quality bulb.

          I am a video artist and I shoot video in my studio I have been using this light for over three years. I only had to replace it because I was clumsy and broke it. There is nothing bad I can say about this light. The light cools down fast for disassembly.

                  500 W lamp, that's it. Works great. Make sure you use it for indoors only. I've used it for about 20 hours so far and it's still working well. The lifetime is supposed to be about 60 hours, it's well worth the $[$].

                    It's a 500w incandescent standard base bulb. Only $ bucks! Until they come out with an LED bulb that will be this bright and dimmable without flicker on camera use this.

                      It's a glass bulb, so it's delicate. I love these though and use them for still life, product photography, and filmmaking. They do get hot and take a bit to cool down, so handle accordingly. The color is consistent and the light is beautiful when diffused.

                            I use this bulb to go along with my lighting kit that I also bought from B&H. It's very reliable. Of course, it goes out like any other lightbulb eventually, so I like to have a couple extra on hand.

                            I had searched all over the place for this bulb and finally found it here. The bulb is great for my 3 point interview set up. Usually with tungsten bulbs the subject will complain about the lights being too hot, but not with this bulb! The color temperature stays true throughout a whole shoot. The only downsize is the amount of time the bulb stays hot after a shoot, but that is expected with any bulb, duh!

                            Bright white bulb is perfect for my soft box lighting setup and works great just like the original bulbs that I had.
