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.

Something is wrong!

By Jim

from Los Angeles

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

2 modeling lamp bulbs that came with my brand new Elinchrom 500 strobes burned out in the first half hour of use. Figure, I need to always have a bunch on hand. After checking the Internet, seems like this is a systemic issue with these lights.

            This came in the box with my Elinchrom BRX 500 Monolight and died in less than 5 mins when I just tested the light range. Not to mention I live in a country, where there is no Elinchrom.

                  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!

                  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:

                            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.
