    Well made

    This bulb is better made than the old one which is slightly narrower. The new one is as wide as the D-lite IT flash tube and may diffuse the forward light a little better.

    Good but shorter lifespan than I'd like

    These lights are very consistent with their colors but they do tend to be on the warm side for the flash. I'd like to see Elinchrom create some color balanced lights that are more...Read complete review

    These lights are very consistent with their colors but they do tend to be on the warm side for the flash. I'd like to see Elinchrom create some color balanced lights that are more in line with the temperature of the flast.

          Comments about Elinchrom Modeling Lamp - 100 watts/90 volts - for EL250, EL250C:

          When my modeling lamp on my Elinchrom D-Lite went out, I visited various local shops which specialize in light bulbs. While some had a bulb with the correct, E27, base, none of them turned on when powered up. This is the exact bulb style and wattage designed for the D-Lite!

          It took a while to import the bulb, but now that I have it I'm one VERY happy camper!

              I use both Elinchrom 250w/500w and do a lot of portraits i don't always keep them on i will turn them off when i am waiting and they are everything i need and have not failed me, the light is the perfect brightness and gives a nice soft look. Worth the money.

                          These Leuci lamps were supplied with my D-Lite IT kit. They may match the performance rating of the Elinchrom model lamp but they are a lot bigger. Since they overhang the flashtube and cut some of the flash output, I'm not a fan of this bulb.

                            I did not want to risk buying an after market bulb that might not fit. This fits perfect and price is reasonable.

                                    One of the original modeling bulbs burned out, so picked several of these as replacements & spare stock. Works fine in the BXRi moonlight. Not sure if a normal light bulb would work since the original bulb is 90 Volts. Went ahead and got these since the specs were the same (90 Volts / 100 Watts). Color seems like it matches the original (one head still has its original modeling light).

                                                  This bulb is better made than the old one which is slightly narrower. The new one is as wide as the D-lite IT flash tube and may diffuse the forward light a little better.
