    First time trying them for portraits. Did a directory photoshoot at my church. Purchased muslim background. Turned off ceiling lights and used Impact octagon 4-light system and Impact softbox-4light flourescent. These lights worked very well, and were color balanced. I did notice a slight color shift of skin (but it was camera settings, not lights). I used auto-white balance instead of flash, or flourescent settings. I use a Nikon camera---skina little orange. Friend used a Canon---skin was perfect. I used both the Octagon and Rectangular Softboxes placed 2-3ft in front of camera at 45 degree angles. Even light with just enough shadows to keep pic from being flat. Would definitely recommend to others. I plan to replace some of the lights with SP50 for higher output. VERY SATISFIED for the cost. ------------------------------------------

    Garbage Bulbs - Get what you pay for.

    Unfortunately I got these bulbs as part of the Impact 4 socket softbox kit and they are absolutely terrible. Very Weak. The light barely escapes the softbox, and they are rated at 5000K, so about 500K short of daylight; and the CRI is only 80. They cast a weird greenish hue and shadows and skin tone look pale, dead, and flat. To be fair, they are only $; but your money is better used on the taxes on a better bulb.

    Comments about Eiko SP27/50K Spiral Fluorescent Lamp (26W/120V):

    I'm using 12 of these in a three light indoor video studio. They are a little slow to warm up, but produce a consistent light that will maintain a good white balance. However, be careful of handling them by the rings. I broke one just trying to screw it into the base. Handle them by the base, and keep the box they came in for transport. The footcandles are a little low, even when four lamps are used together in one fixture, but they do a good job lighting a single talent.

      Pro: It's a CFL lightbulb with a great daylight color temp.
      Con: It's a CFL lightbulb and lightbulbs break pretty easy. It's not its fault.

          I shoot interviews in the field. I find that this is a great lamp for me because it is inexpensive and bright. One caveate is that is green so no Auto white balance. I use an expo disc but you can use a grey card. That being said it is a perfect lamp for a small budget.

                On the advice of a friend photographer, I switched from tungsten to fluorescent lights to take pictures of my wife who makes children's dresses. The tungsten bulbs would burn out quickly and give off too much heat. I've only used them for one month, but they work great. Couldn't be happier.

                    I use these for a quad-base soft box light. Quick to reach full brightness, uniform color temperature, and power efficient, these bulbs work very well. And with a very long expected life, should last for quite a while. Well worth the cost!

                        I use two of these in a soft box for indoor video interviews/corporate spotlights and they have been a great addition to my kit. They are inexpensive, put off a nice light and haven't died on me or flickered once. One of them warms up faster than the other, but it doesn't take long to reach full power.

                          I switched out the two incandescent bulbs in my home office for these. It's remarkable how similar my lighting is now at nighttime to what I get in the afternoons with daylight streaming through the windows.

                          I was never comfortable with fluorescent lighting for video, but this little bulb has changed all that. 5000k color temp is close to daylight and I can preset the camera to 5000k. Interviews look a whole lot better now!

                          One of the eight bulbs in my lighting kit arrived broken. B&H replaced it promptly and without fanfare.

                            OVERALL: Recommended

                            #1 --> Uniform light at 5000K 'daylight': it matches other 5000k lights of varying types currently being used in my continous lighting set-up.

                            #2 --> For the cost, these are the easiest way to increase shot quality.

                            #3 --> 1 bulb provides adequate light, equivalent to around 120w. Bulb's work well in quads.

                            #4 --> So far they run cooler than other fluorescent lamps I've tried.

                            #5 --> Have only used them a week so can't speak for longetivity.

                              Bulbs warm up quickly, nice even light.

                                    Five stars because I've had no problems yet. Still works, doesn't overheat, light delivers as expected.
