Used the 95 CRI BR30 LED Bulb for Artwork & Studio in 6500K to replace six recessed can lights in a 750 sf studio space. Very white light, easily notice the blue hues on paintings. I have some of the regular bulbs in 6500K for photographing art and may reserve half of these BR30 bulbs for photos. Going to try adding a few 5000K to the mix to see if I can dampen the blue a bit, mimic a wider range of lighting situations. Happy though—makes the space useable, even on the darkest nights, plenty of light—just not yet perfect.
I just installed a number of BR30 95 CRI/5000K in a small painting studio. They are exactly what I was hoping for.
I recently received the E26 A19 and BR30 art studio light bulbs that I ordered from Waveform. I got 5000k and 6500k in each bulb type for comparison. Each will serve me beautifully to achieve simulated daylight at any time of day. The bulbs were very effectively packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Thanks Waveform!
I did extensive research and tried 6 or more different 90-95+ CRI bulbs for lighting in our build-out of a 1,500 square foot professional textile arts, printmaking, and painting studio. The Waveform NorthLux BR30 beat them all for color accuracy. If you care about reds, then these bulbs are the way to go. The claims are for real. The bulbs are heavier than others, too. I do wish each bulb put out more lumens, but it’s an acceptable trade-off for quality light.
We are using these bulbs for a track light system installed to illuminate paintings in a dark warehouse space. The clean daylight emitted works wonders to bring out the full spectrum of colors and surface details in the artwork on display. We'll be coming back for more!
Have ordered the PAR30 bulbs on several occasions and pleased w/results. One DoA, out of 10 ordered. Hard to get correct url for returns.
I am a photographer and lighting is very critical to judge the color of my prints. I am very pleased with the quality lighting these lights provide.
These lights are very high quality. Blend wonderfully to complement natural light during the day and perfect color representation at night. I'm using 15 in recessed cans to illuminate a 500sqft painter's studio.
This 5000k is the best light I have ever had to paint by.
My wife has a hallway dedicated to displaying her artwork for dealers/buyers. These upgraded BR30, 500k bulbs have brohgt her works to life and allowed viewers to see the paintings as they were intended.
