I’m looking to compare different types of light bulbs for brightness, and color range. An example light bulb would be the Phiips Hue
Do you think the Desktop Spectrometry Kit 3.0 would be able to measure the color spectrum of a lightbulb, and its brightness?
- If the Desktop Spectrometry Kit does not work, do you know what relatively inexpensive tool type could be used?
- If it can measure brightness, will I be able to compare two light bulbs? (will webcam exposure change?)
- I was thinking of building a white box inside a black box to isolate ambient light. Good idea?
I’m new to the spectrometer world. I did quite a bit of research but I'm still not sure what tool needs to be used. I think it might be a spectrometer based on what the Sekonic C-700-U SpectroMaster Color Meter does. For a personal project I definitely don't want to spend $1,000+ on this.
