Westcott TD5 6 alternative bulbs
4 months ago

Hi all
I just read TJSchoffner comment on Westcott spiderlite TD6 vs Einsteins strobes thread. Thanks for explaining everything in an easy way :). I've just started my photography quest and purchased used Westcott TD5. I bought it from US cos Westcott in UK cost twice as much !?

My question is - have you ever used any other bulbs than westcott? There are some ebay replacements available like   http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-x-65w-Photography-Balanced-Daylight-5500K-E27-Bulb-/200642860656?pt=UK_Photography_Light_Bulbs_Tubes&hash=item2eb73f1670   for 1/3 of the W price. One Westcott 50W bulbs cost around 67$ in uk. crazy. Have you also used higher voltage bulbs than recommended 50W each?

Thanks for advice.
