Ah, ok. Yeah, my ISO was at 400... I'll put it back down to 100.

No need for more light. Just prolong the exposure, you said 1/8 @ ISO 400. Take it to 1/4 @ ISO 200 (if i am not wrong, S7000 base ISO is 200 only). Your shot seems under, maybe can even try 1/3 second. Anyway, check your jpg quality too and see if it is at finest quality.

not sure abt your cam, should be able to do a auto white balance right, place your lights and use a a4 white paper and custom your white balance to get true colours if you want, if you want the bulb colours then you can play around with the other preset colour balance to achieve your desired effects.
