I received an email today advertising LED lights for photography. The temperature was supposedly adjustable from about 3,000 to 5,500 K. It sounds interesting but I know nothing about how good it really is or if the light has decided temperature spikes.

Panels designed for photography are obviously designed and balanced specifically for that. LED stage lights, however, are designed to throw large amounts of very pure colors (or mixes of primary colors). For photography, they really suck. I just shot an event over the weekend that was lit 100% with LED fixtures. I could get mostly usable images when they cycled to white or mostly blue, but when they went green or red the sensor went nuts and oversaturated. And unlike gelled incandescents, you can't do anything in LR because when you try to desaturate the red, the image goes all wonky because there is nothing there besides the red.
