I've got idea to do with this cheapo MR16 LED from Philips which cost around $ 5 with 2.6W power.

 

These highlighter have some magic in them. They are transparent and can correct some green cast with pink-magenta highlighter.

For orange one used for reducing Color-temperature which this LED rated at 6500K. 

 

I just mix some of these drop of pigment with hot glue and doped at the face of LED (chip itself) and get this interestingly usable color quality.

 

I'll put out there LED board and pack them in diffused fluorescent ceiling fixture later on.

 

The shot was taken by 6D. 

 

Color correcting in Lightroom but not alter about color temperature.

WB : Daylight 5500K tint 10

 

Right is TL-D 950 Graphica (noticed it warmer at 5000-5200K) Left is Philips MR16 Essential 2.6W with Highlighter paste on LED chip.

 

Philips Rated this LED at CRI 70 and yes it has poor color rendition. But for non keying light. It's convenient. maybe add RGB along with them and fine tune it will make this to be beast.

Maybe this can be apply with casty on cam LED Light ! Who know. 

 

But just for fun and reasonably usable. Not for critical work.

 

Cheers !
