Product Description

Compact fluorescent light bulbs use up to 75% less energy and last up to 10 times longer than standard light bulbs. The total cost of ownership of a compact fluorescent lightbulb is typically substantially less than a standard light bulb that produces the same amount of light. Primary applications for compact fluorescent light bulbs include retail, hospitals, warehouses, workshops, churches, arena, schools, television, photography, and garages.

5000k daylight compact fluorescent standard spiral bulbs are an excellent choice for digital camera photography. They generate a close match to natural daylight and a crisper view of the items being illuminated.

Customer Reviews

The bulbs worked great.
Amazon Customer
The CowboyStudio CFL provides 4.6 LUX on the subject target per watt consumed while the ALZO 45 and the KAEZI 85 provide 5.6 LUX per watt.

2012-07-06: Updated to add detail to light measurement methodology. The results of the test have not changed.

Serious photographers and videographers may want to read all this info about multiple CFLs tested. Others can skim it for the CowboyStudio 105 watt specific evaluation.

I have been testing CFLs for a couple important projects that need continuous light. The tests include measuring light falling on the subject (measured in LUX with a Lux meter and confirmed with a Sekonic Digital Incident Lightmeter), color temp/quality, and actual power consumption. Since a lot has gone into this, and the results are "interesting" especially in terms of this specific CFL, I decided to share my opinions. Apologies for another long, but fact filled, review :-)

The tests were all conducted with bulb warm-up times > 30 minutes, professional digital light metering, test RAW still images of a Kodak Q-60 target, and continuous monitoring of power factors. I also tested 3 100 W incandescent bulbs to see how efficient these CFLs really are.

Against incandescent lamps, including one with an encapsulated Halogen source, these CFLs generate 5 to 6 times more illumination per watt consumed! For real! This means having lots of light to work with with far less heat, power consumption and fewer blown circuit breakers on location!

The good news is that CFLs come out very serviceable and and efficient . . . but this "105 watt" CowboyStudio CFL is at the back of the pack. Way back.

One star is generous for these (it will not allow 0 stars) These lights are no where near the rated 105 watts. I bought them to replace my 85 watt flashpoint lights and the 85 are brighter!!! I put the lights on and tested with light meter and the 85 watt are a full 2 stops brighter !!! What they don't tell you in the above is that YOU CANT RETURN THEM. Save your money and look else where. Heck these are going on ebay right after this post!!

This bulb is fantastic! I love bright sunny looking light bulbs. This bulb looked very much like sunlight and was completely noise free! The bulb is huge! But that is fine for what it is used for. Although it says it consumes 105 watts, my watt meter says it only consuming 39.8 watts, whether warm or cold Why? I do not know yet, but because of that I cannot give it a 5 star.

The Cowboy 105 watt CFL light output is only 120 foot-candle (FC)!!! I have a generic 23-watt CFL with 91 FC and a 29-watt CFL with 112 FC. If these cowboys are really 100-watt than they must be the least efficient CFLs ever made.

These bulbs are not as bright as advertised. I have 2 42watt Ecobulbs that I bought at a home improvement store and those bulbs are brighter than the CowboyStudio.
Not to mention one of the bulbs arrived with the spiral tube not glued to the base. The tube wobbled all over and I was afraid it was going to pull the wires out of the base.
But I needed the bulbs for a shoot, so I glued the bulb to the plastic base. I doubt I'll buy these again, when the home improvement store has the same color temp bulbs for less.

The bulbs worked great. The color looks accurate and the light output is good. The price was extremely reasonable. You can't go wrong with these lamps.

These are not the Eiko lamps your looking for. I bought them and they are not as bright. Don't be cheap, except to substitute!

at night it fill like day light in the room but one bulb died very fast and since light is white it's not powerful like yellow lite, so my 60 watt yellow more powerful then this 105 watt.
