6500K Flicker-free Lighting for Art Capture, Color Correction and Fine art Printing
I perform art to capture, color correction, and fine art printing. I am using Ikan Lyra LEDs at this time but not so happy with their results. They are okay, but I am looking for 6500K lighting, also flicker-free. I see you have bulbs and strips.
We suspect that the primary reason for the difficulty in judging color differences is due to an incomplete spectrum emitted by the Ikan product. Specifically, this will likely be reflected in a low CRI value, possibly in the 80-90 range. (You may also want to look into the R9 value, which provides even more data about red color rendering in particular).
As a starting point, we would recommend experimenting with a few of our 95 CRI products. Here are the A19 bulbs which are daylight calibrated to D50 (5000K) and D65 (6500K) with a 95 CRI rating and would be a great starting point for your tests:
If you would like to consider our LED strip lights, we would recommend our FilmGrade LED strip lights which are offered in both 5600K and 6500K:
Our 5000K LED strip lights (also in 95 CRI) are listed under our retail & commercial section:
Installing the LED strip lights will require a bit of additional assembly and installation work. For additional guidance, we recommend referencing our layout maps which can be found at the link below:
Finally, we would recommend taking advantage of our returns policy to test out several of the color temperature options and determine if our products do indeed offer an improvement over your current setup. The full policy can be found below:
