Eiko ECT Reviews
Used to be my Go To light but Melting off Base
I used to use these lights all the time with no issues. As of late, there have been melting off of the base and falling off. In the past, they used to just burn out and I'd replace them - no problem. Now, it's a potential fire hazard and I need to waste a potato removing the thread from the light fixture. I'm switching brands and see how that goes.
Eiko delivers more than 10000 lumens and it's a lot!
I really like those Eiko bulbs, I like continuous lighting and the 250W and 500W are perfect. Usually you don't need 500W, it's a lot, I'd rather go with several 250W multiplying the source, the modifiers, distances etc. The color rendition is incredible, bulbs are CRI100 (full visible spectrum) and you can really see difference compared to big CFL rated CRI90-95. Never move the bulbs while it's hot, they will break, not even a finger flick on the stand. If handled carefully you can expect a better lifetime than the 60 hours stated. You should try both 250W and 500W bulbs for your project. Check the max ratings of your lamp wires. Never overload them or they will burn.
Eiko ECT Lamp @ B&H
Picked up at the store with a great service! Bulbs work as god as I expected.
Bulb EXPLODED and could have taken out an eye!
Five minutes on and it exploded so loud it sounded like a gunshot , almost started a fire and chards of glass went everywhere! It could have damaged someone's eyes permanently. I am so upset! Just plain awful.
Now were talkin!
These are indeed about 500 watts and are indeed about 13,500 lumens and are indeed about 3200K and they are awesome! CRI does not get higher than these bulbs (100!) Perfect for my application. Best part if your furnace goes out, these will also heat your home, luckily I only need the blast of clean light for about 1/4 of a second per use, so the heat they give off does not bother me. I've been looking for this bulb for about 5 years and for reproduction photography they are the bomb!!
This light is really bright and adds a nice warm light to your subject. It tuns really hot be careful.

This is a powerful bulb. It illuminates the entire shooting area and great for three point lighting
I used several of these bulbs in conjunction with unbleached muslin. It gave the most beautiful lighting. I highly recommend this light!!!
