Ushio BCA reviews

BCA Incandescent Photoflood Lamp - 250W / 115-120V (Blue) is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast shipping, work great! I use these in photofloods for my eBay business. When used properly with a relatively fast lens, they give a more accurate portrayal of color than the pop-up flash on my camera. I've never used them with strobes or anything like that, so I don't know how they integrate into that kind of set up. These are lower wattage than the vintage bulbs that came with my photoflood lamps, which were overkill, burned out faster, and made me concerned because of the burning smell they emitted. Still, watch the heat, especially if you use paper-lined sockets. Turn them off when you leave the room, and check the sockets regularly when changing bulbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lighting Art I use two of these bulbs placed at 45 degrees on either side of the subject to shoot fine art. It's simple and it works well.
Date published: 2012-01-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Color I use these bulbs to photograph jewelry and they are bright enough and give a nice daylight color. The other reviewer commented that they only last three hours, which is exactly the length of time that they say they last on the specs page. I have my lights on a power strip and turn them on just when I'm shooting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bulb! I wish it came in smaller wattages. I use a lot of incandescent bulbs when I'm shooting and I use these bulbs in particular when recreating sunlight. They're great for that but I do wish that they came in smaller wattage for smaller locations. Bulbs also work great as eye lights when outside.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD QUALITY THE LIGHT BULBS WERE GOOD JUST FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS IN WHICH I USED THEM THREE TIMES ONLY...ONE SEEMED TO BE BURNED AND AFTER A FEW HOURS THE SECOND ONE...EVEN THOUGH I GAVE THEM AND MY CAMERA CONSTANT BREAKS...VERY DISSAPOINTED...
Date published: 2014-02-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Median lifespan: 1 minute I bought five of these bulbs and, of the four I've tried so far, only one has lasted longer that a minute. Absolute garbage.
Date published: 2016-03-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lamps are poor quality Got these with a kit. Lamps both burned out after less than 3 hours of usage. Will never buy again.
