I am an architectural interior photographer and want to know the selectable color temperatures in Kelvin. See detail below.

1. What color temperatures are available and selectable?
2. Will these bulbs be readable by a conventional color temperature meter?
3. How will a professional camera's sensor react to the LED light with regard to color temperature?

    You can specify what colors are selected from an image. So, create a color palette in a graphic form, and select the colors from that. From my testing, the light reproduction is surprisingly accurate. Very accurate. Give it a try I think you will love it.

  • 1. What color temperatures are available and selectable?
    right now, you can browse through 90 shades of white but the app does not tell you the temperature in K

    2. Will these bulbs be readable by a conventional color temperature meter?
    yes they should be. However the light is made using differently colored LEDs so most likely the meter gives an indication but will deviate a little.

    3. How will a professional camera's sensor react to the LED light with regard to color temperature?
    That depends on the camera's sensor properties. We have seen lots of beautiful photographs already, and the CRI is very high >90. So it looks like you'll be fine!
