Sunlight and incandecent lighting are the "holy" standards for color rendering. Other light sources including LEDs are of various qualities. RGB light sources are particularly bad when used as a source of "white light".

I will get educated with my second cup of coffee. The science of light, photography, and perception is intriguing.

One of these meters fits in a pocket, empty after paying for it! About $1600
