Terrific Photo Bulbs!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ALZO 45W Joyous Light Full Spectrum CFL Light Bulb 5500K, 2800 Lumens, 120V, Pack of 4, Daylight White Light (Electronics)
After having used these bulbs on several photographic applications, I have one word for them...FABULOUS!
I have photographed real estate interiors, pets at a local animal shelter, and now food for a Pittsburgh area restaurant. The ALZO 45 watt has performed exactly "as advertised".
The 5500K provides daylight color light that can be mixed with fill-flash and natural daylight, and one white balance setting does the job. Regarding white balance; you will have to experiment with the WB to find the right setting for your camera. Don't use the auto if you want the best results. On my Nikon D-40, I use the "cloudy +3" white balance for accurate color of my subject.
The brightness of these bulbs, is as advertised, approximately equivalent to a 150 watt incandescent. I use two bulbs with reflectors and they are great for rooms up to about 20', but I may consider a pair of the higher watt ALZOs for larger rooms.
Great product guys!

Your always best off using a manual white balance setting if your camera has one. It usually only takes a few seconds to get a very good white balance.
