    Default White Balance Light

    Hi to all the Photography boffins,

    I work at a Diamond mine and we have need to find specific lighting for our Diamond sorting boxes.

    I have been asked to get "White Balance Lights" basically lights that show up the colour of the diamonds correctly. This needs to preferably be strip type lights as they need to go in a confined space.

    I have looked with google, but don't know exactly what to look for. Seems many of the camera shops are just product sellers?

    Any advice out there?

    thanks
    Jan van Zeeventer

    Neutral White Light has a colour temperature of 5 600k. You need to find lights that will emit 5 600k. And yes it appears as if photography stores are your best bet.
