I bought this bulb for a kicker when shooting with Kino's and it worked great! Perfect color matching to daylight.
Buy it if you want good CRI on the skin and good color balance. Wished they also made a 60W model for more light output.

NOTE: I dropped mine and it broke. They are as fragile as any fluorescent bulb... should have been more careful. I am on my way to get another one, that's how much I like it.

I purchased these Kino Flo bulbs when my regular CFLs (Cameron 5200K, 28W Daylight bulbs) suddenly became unavailable. Though I've heard good things about the Kino Flos, I found I was unable to use these for my stop-motion animation project. Though they are described as "flicker-free", they actually have a surprising amount of flicker that shows up in stop-motion footage. Very disappointing.

    Kino's CLF's are finally where serious video shooters need them to be. The color is great, no flicker, no buzz, no funny skin tones, not too much heat, etc., etc.

      Ordered 2 of these. 1st one worked great. It perfectly simulates daylight. It's not super bright, as it's only 26W, but it puts out way more light and a 26W tungsten light. The other light I bought was dead on arrival. I got a replacement and it worked fine. Definitely recommend for anyone that needs daylight indoors. Great for practical lights too.

      Use as modeling light

        Comments about Kino Flo 6.6" 26W Kino KF55 True Match Fluorescent Lamp:

        I use speedlites inside of softboxes for portrait photography. I use these Kino Flo bulbs inside the soft box to act as a modeling light. It is a technique I learned from a B&H video. I don't find I have to turn off the modeling light when I fire the speedlite flash because the Kino Flo produces a similar temperature light. These bulbs throw off enough light to be helpful as a modeling light assuming your studio is not otherwise well lit. Said differently, it is not a strong modeling light.

          Comments about Kino Flo 6.6" 26W Kino KF55 True Match Fluorescent Lamp:

          I use these bulbs as a modeling light in my soft boxes that are powered by a speedlite. I learned this technique of attaching a bulb to a homemade socket inside the soft box from a clever B&H video. The modeling light is pretty low power, but in an otherwise dimly lit studio it works well enough. I don't turn the modeling light off when I shoot because the light produced by Kino Flo bulb is close enough to the light produced by my speedlite.

                    Good product, works as advertised and matches well with other Kino Flos. I use it for video.

                    Good output but not particularly powerful, so I use it as fill, eyelight, or soft backlight. Could be used as key on close ups but not advised as it'll blind the talent at a close distance.

                              Video and photography. I liked the bulbs. Much better than off the shelf daylight bulbs. Not an exact match to my Kino Flow 4x4 but pretty close. Pretty delicate to ship. The first 4 I ordered from B&H were broken. Still waiting for my refund. It has only been a week. I did order replacement bulbs because they are good.
