    I've got Dichroic colorhead on my D2 and the writing on the lamp says GE usa 12 amd 22.5v. On the other side it says Omega Part 471-029. Is this 250watts? It's got a smooth reflector like the one listed below.
    Freestylephoto.biz has a bunch but they are 24volt. All i care about is color and getting the same output as i had. Anyone know a source?
    Is the one below what i need?

    If you call TopBulb.com and give them the Omega #, they will send the proper bulbs.

    I have a bunch at home, but they are not in Omega boxes.

    Without a Chromegatrol or the accessory volt stab on the rear of the power supply, you will blow bulbs pretty fast. The volt stab is about 1.5 " sq and 6 in long and mounts vertically on the back side. It has a perforated metal housing.

    Google 'Classic Omega Enlargers' and you will come across a web-site completely devoted to Omegas; it's run by a Harry somethingorother. He buys refurbishes and sells Omegas and knows everything that there is to know about Omegas.

    Hope that this helps,

    I have purchased several bulbs from Harry somethingorother and have been very pleased. The cost was reasonable and the service was great.
