Does anyone know what color temperature GE reveal bulbs are? Are they closer to 3200K or 5600K? Any issues with using them and mixing them with pro lights?

I have found the daylight temperature CFL bulbs are much closer than the "reveal" bulbs, which were not close enough to work.
They're cheap enough to get a few different wattages to tune in a light to your taste (since all but the most expensive don't work on a dimmer.)
Plus you can get more light out of a practical if needed, they can put out the light of a 200 watt bulb for less than 60 watts, which may be the max rating of the lamp.

This is in no way scientific, but I feel like they fall near the middle (roughly equivalent to Tungsten with ~1/2 CTB). I bought them to use as practicals in a short I did in December.
I was balanced to daylight, but wanted the practicals to still have a slight-tungsten glow. They worked perfectly. Plus they work better than CFL with my dimmers

I white balanced on a regular bulb and got 2600
I white balanced with the GE reveal bulb and got 2800
They are definitely cooler, but not by a lot (if my test was accurate).Dreyfus: Give me ten men like Clouseau and I could destroy the world.

n:Vision, makers of compact bulbs, has a huge line of bulbs of varying "Watts" BUT whats more important is they give out all the specs including COLOR TEMP. The one downside is they are a Home Depot exclusive so if you only have a Lowes in your town you are out of luck.

if your town doesn't have a Lowes, it sure as beans doesn't have a Home Depot. think Walgreens, Longs, CVS, Rite Aid. all on the same block haha
