Smith-Victor ECA reviews

ECA (250W/120V) Lamps (Pack of 6) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright and Warm Great bulbs. The 3000K white balance doesn't really balance with many other light sources, so think about getting some gels if you plan on mixing this light source with anything else. They are super bright though. Using a simple reflector set up, you can easily fill and balance on a bright day. So I guess, they're actually brighter than the sun, lol. They get very, very hot. But unlike halogen bulbs, the oils from your skin will not make them explode. When they're off and cool, you can handle them bare handed. When they're on, don't. They are also pretty durable. No need to baby them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They work...but not for long I use these with an umbrella as a fill light in interviews. They create a nice even light. They get incredibly hot, so watch your hands. You definitely need to let these cool down before handling them. Even if they're still slightly warm, the filament breaks easier than if they were room temp. I think the longest one of these bulbs have lasted is about 7-8 hours. So, if you're shooting a lot, you'll be replacing a lot. However, they're pretty cheap all things considered, and they create a nice light, when they work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst Lightbulbs Ever! I thought that if I buy a bulk pack of six, I would be saving a few pennies, but as it turned out, these bulbs are awful. The first bulb I used burned out within two hours. Then when I replaced it with another bulb, that one burned out also within two hours. These bulbs are not good for everyday photography. I previously had Envo which lasted for about a month (or two) but are a little pricey so I thought I would try something different. As always... less isn't always better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lights but have a short life I have used these for years. They provide great lighting but have a somewhat short life. Need to keep spare lights on hand if you are doing a long photo shoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Six light bulbs! It's actually handy to stock up on these in this way, as this is not an item found at a local hardware or @, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bulbs for the price I bought bulbs with my lighting kit and they didnt last an hour. I bought these bulbs and they worked fine.
