[UV] Sunlight vs Nichia 365nm UV LED - colors

A quick experiment using the same preset WhiteBalance using my ReflectionDisc.

UV sensitive camera, Baader-U filter, ReflectionDisc for in-camera WB

Left: Nichia 365nm UV LED; Right: Sunlight:

Interesting to note, that the WB still holds and the proof for the wavelength "used" is in the middle (frosted glass on my balcony) - just compare the colors with the "UV color palette" I have pasted on top.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...

More info on this very interesting field may be found on my site
