29 Watts. - Just too weak!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cowboystudio Full Spectrum Light Bulb- Four 45W Photography Photo CFL 5500K - Daylight balanced pure white light, (Pack Of 4) (Camera)
If you are looking for a 45 Watt bulb, this is not it. It actually measured at 29 watts +-1 fluctuation.
For me though it worked out well because I didn't realize when I ordered it that the socket I was going to plug it in has a Max rating of 40 Watts. That actually makes them work for me.
Brightness-wise they could be brighter but I can't complain.
Color-wise they emit a little too green for my linking but that's not too bad. Pretty easy to adjust the white balance.
EDIT: after a month of use, I am really annoyed that I have to use one stop lower than I could have used if these were true 45W. Hopefully I'll still be able to return them and get a different set.
