What kind of lights are these?

I'm looking to get some really cheap lights, quick. I want these tungsten lights but when I click on the features tab, it says they're halogen lights. But they are under the tugsten light section on BHPhoto. So which are they and / or what color will the lights be? Excuse me for my suidity. lol

The type of lamp is a "tungsten - hallogen" . also commonly refered to as a tungsten, hallogen or quartz lamp.

Tungsten refers to the filliment - a threaded material made of a tungsten alloy.

Hallogen refers to the gas used in the globe. Other types are Sodium, Mercury, Neon and Xenon.

Quartz refers to the glass borosillicate composition of the globe itself.

What you are looking for is a lamp that burns at 120v, 3200K (Kelvin-the color temp. measurement). The DYS globe used by the fixture you're looking at is a Tungsten-Hallogen, Quartz globe - just what you want.

Cheers,

Frank Otto
