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

          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.

            This bulb yields the best color that I have found. Still not as good as my 4 Bank Kino's but good for practicals and fill.

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

              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.

              This is pretty good for a bulb. Hands down way better than anything else that comes in this shape. Great for background or ambient lighting. I still use my Kino Flo's for my main light.

              Not recommended for stopmotion animation

                    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.

                      We have tried a few of these and the KIno's are the best so far.

                        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.
