This is no longer manufactured....the DFN is the substitute...as anyone used this substitution bulb and seen even screen illumination from their projector? Years ago, I had B&H projector that gave uneven illumination once this bulb was substituted. The slight side shadow effect was visible in bright film scenes. What was strange is the filament (mol) measurements were listed as identical.

would it be possible to convert to a more readily available bulb like this picture shows?

I see that your replacement lamps are very expensive. Would this conversion be of interest?
