Re: Need a good 3200k LED suggestion

Well, I finally got my $60 CN304 to match an actual incandescent light source. Slid a cut piece of LEE 285 3/4 CTO film behind the included clear filter, and perfect 3200k light, centered on the vectorscope. Not a hint of green or magenta, and the light output is actually a tiny bit brighter than the 4000k the Neewer "magenta" CTO put out. The gel was only $7, so that makes for a very economical and very bright cheap light source for me at night. Couldn't be more pleased.....thank God I didn't spend $1000 on a DLED Bi-Color!

Some frame grabs. The SOT is being hard lit from behind me by the always on red/blue cop car lights from the crash frame, red+blue=magenta, very annoying issue I have to deal with in the field! Images were shot using the 3200k preset on my camera.
