    Super bright, super hot

    Comments about Ushio ECT Photoflood (500W/120V):

    Woa. I thought I could stick this thing in a heap clip light with some black wrap around it to reduce the spill. Nope. The black wrap started burning. Super bright though! Just couldn't use it.

        Comments about Ushio ECT Photoflood (500W/120V):

        I've just started using this product so I can't comment on the longevity. But the product works as it should and the light output seems to be about right.

        It was making noise as I took it out of the cheap box it was held in (like the filament had broken) but it worked fine. Made me sweat a little.

            I bought these to replace the useless elko bulbs that burn out after an hour or so.

            Not only did 3 of these bulbs stay strong for an 8 hour shoot, one of the lights fell from about 12 feet up (hard enough to break the light) and the BULB STILL WORKS!

            No brainer here, stay away from elkos and buy these instead!

              Had gone through a massive amount of Eiko 500w bulbs that were burning out in less than 2 hours.These Ushio bulbs are lasting longer with my setup and working great. Using with simple Smith Victor reflectors for product photography.

                    I needed replacement lamps to go in my Smith Victor photoflood reflectors. These may have the same base (Edison), but they won't fit. The bulb is wider at the base than the hole in the reflector. the bulb is also not as long as the standard ECT lamp. Probably would be fine inside a China ball or similar with a bare socket.
