    Bloom is no hue bulb

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    If you are buying the Bloom as another Hue bulb, you are in for a surprise. It looks like the Hue bulbs have special LED's so that they can make all the white colors of normal bulbs in addition to colors. But as any Hue owner knows, hue bulbs can't make green thru blue on the spectrum because of it. Now the Bloom on the other hand can make rich greens, blues, turquoise, but can't make "white" light like the Hue bulbs can. That is why it can't be used in light recipes (whites) but can in photo recipes (colors). So, if you want more of the same, buy more bulbs and add them to a lamp, if you want to get some intense color you miss from the hue system, then get a few Blooms also.
