Thread: 6500k light source?

  1. #1

    Default 6500k light source?

    Hello,

    is there anywhere in singapore that sells a light source that is very close to 6500k? If so how much? I need it to calibrate my colorimeter.

    Actually I am thinking of using it to calibrate my projector but I want to know how accurate it is first.

    No! it is stated 6500K (BTW this is not near to blue yet). I understand (was told) Osram has one with 5500K, but I could not find, I think 5500K is more difficult to find, let me know if found one. I want to try.

    I am experimenting with Philips Tornado Cool Daylight - packaged with Green box. Go check in any shop selling lighting.

    i'm saying, 6500k is bluer, 5500k is whiter... lower than that, is more yellowish...

    I think florescent lighting is not consistent right?

    Is there a place is Singapore that sells special lighting or lightbox used to view photos, etc.
