Is the Philips Lamp 6981P speced for the Color Command the same as standard GLD? They both have the same base type and specs for 750-Watts / 3200K / 300 Hours. Just wondering as the GLD is a more common lamp that seems to be cheaper and easer to get in a pinch. Thanks.

    I used to have a big long email from someone explaining the difference between the lamps, but it got deleted by accident. Basically I believe there is a slight temperature change between them. But since I really had a tough time finding them and not too many people carry them in stock, I just went with the GLD because I can get it way easier.

    I was told by a vendor that the Philips 6981P is discontinued. Is that true, or she just want to sell me the GE GLD?

    Any place I have looked have told me that they don't have them. I just gave up and ordered the other lamps. Since I am not doing any color critical mixing, I don't care much if I have the correct lamp. I really don't notice a difference between them in looking at them next to eachother. Plus the other is much easier to find and everyone carries those.

    I think HES should have chosen a better lamp as their standard for this fixture since no one seems to have this or stock it.
