>Sensors are usually daylight balanced. Meaning that the

>you begin veer away from daylight balance, the white balance

>other. The more it has to amplify a signal, the more noise
>you are going to get. A signal down at 2700K is so devoid of
>blue light, that the camera is having to do 100% amplification
>on that signal just to get it into balance. And the noise
>becomes obvious.

>In video / motion picture, this is something that we faced all
>the time, learned how to deal with, and get good results from.
> It's also why nearly ALL movies are shot with daylight
>balanced fixtures. Even practicals on set (table lamps,
>bedside lamps, etc.) are re-bulbed with daylight fluorescent.

>Go to the store, get a few 5500k fluorescent bulbs, and watch
>your problems magically go away.
>Thank you. That explanation is understandable. I will switch out the lights.
