    Very Gay! Do not exceed 6000k. This has been said many times already.... you sacrifice light output for looks. Ultimately its your choice, however i think its rice.

    They both suck.

    6000K is bad enough. Can't imagine how poor visibility will be with 10000K and up.

    Here's 6000K (top) vs. 4300K. Photo taken with daylight film.

    i think 5000k would be just perfect. 6000k are a tad too blue and the 4300ks are a little too white and can't see some things

    FiveFreshFish's comparison is great, i agree 6000K is a bit too blue, but i cant find any decent pics of 5000K.

    is anyone here running 5000K?

    if you look at the garage door, you can't quite make out the outlines in it. a good light should give you a good clear view of it, especially from up close.


    heres a ok set of pic with comparison of the 5000k and the 3480ks

    Did you ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe, that white light could be overexposing the picture
