View Full Version : Color testing viewing light

I noticed that when using the testing kit, the color is different under kitchen light (fluorescent) than regular light (normal light bulb). Which is best for an accurate reading?

I just put the tube against a white wall in the house with the light on. I don't know if different light is better for being accurate.

I think outside light is the best. How much of a difference are you seeing?

I have bright daylight led lights in the kitchen and white cabinets for a background. It looks the same as outside with indirect light. When I had warmer lights in the kitchen there was a small difference. It was more that it was easier to read with brighter lights.

Same as Ron here. I use daylight LEDs in the kitchen and works well for me.

For me, outside lights have played a better effect, maybe it's connected with the level of visibility.
