Understanding the Color Rendering Index and How it works with Video Lights

Dominique from Video Gear

helps us understand CRI and how it is affected with various lighting:

In this tutorial video Dominique explains how the type of video light you use affects color rendering. The video starts with a color rendering measurement of the sun and tungsten lights, two industry standards. The video goes on to measure HMI, Kino-Flo fluorescents, LED, plasma, and even bulbs from the hardware store. In each case the spectrum and color rendering is measured using the Sekonic C-700 spectrometer.
