Re: CFL lighting

Not all CFL are equal regarding color rendering, it is not just a matter of white balance.

For photographic use, I would recommend using something like OSRAM FQ 965 Biolux (T5). It emits a continuous light spectrum very similar to sun light. It is recomended for animals (fish, reptiles...) and is probably good for maodels too!

It can be used with dimmable electronic balast also sold by OSRAM.

Other brands also make similar CFL with CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 9 (more than 90% color accuracy) and color temperature of 56 or 65 (5600K or 6500K).
