My very first Philips SL* lamp captured with my first digital camera

My very first Philips SL* lamp captured with my first digital camera

Click to view full size image

This is my very first Philips SL*9 lamp I got when I was a kid. I got this lamp as a gift from my parents after I was obsessed of these "new" lamps seeing them the first time in Italy during vacation (when they all together fired up in a local restaurant).
It had a broken glass, but as I got another SL*9 I've found on Ebay which its tube got smashed during shipping I was at least able to restore this lamp. The lamp still works fine and starts up quickly.

This picture was taken with a another piece of history:
An Olympus C-3000 digital camera of the year 2000 which still works today.
Enjoy.

Lovely lamps these, although I wouldn't want to be underneath one with a BC cap if the pins gave way

It'll be all right in the end, and if it isn't all right, it isn't the end :love:

Well actually it is. If you use the incorrect lamp base the lighting fairies will come down and slap some sense into you

Keep discharge lighting alive

It's not so bad with E26/27, but it can be a real issue with E39/40 lamps and sockets, I managed to crack the stem of a rare 120V 1000W lamp once by trying to fit it into the wrong lampholder

That sucks! Well I guess try to label all of your lampholders if you have similar ones so we don't kill anymore lamps.

I actually have an E40>E39 adaptor, sent to me by James. It's a subtle difference, but as I said can be important..!
