I came across these lamps in the pound shop (they were next to the DVD's from the other thread) and it made me wonder exactly what kind of lights these are. They aren't exactly spotlights as they aren't foccussed right? But I assume the light would be more directional than an ordinary bulb?

Can anyone give any comment on the quality of light from these things as I'm not really familiar with them. What kind of thing are they normally used for and can they have any cinematic applications or are they just plain weird?

love

Correct they are more directional. Some variants have a silver reflecting surface on the area from the metal thread to where the sharp bend in the glass is.

They're quite common. Usually used for small spots (think clamp on lights)
