The Kelvin is a unit of temperature measurement starting from absolute zero at -273 Celsius. Degrees Kelvin (or color temperature) is used in color photography to indicate the color balance or spectrum of light emitted from a light source. If you were to heat a chunk of iron to 3000Âº Kelvin, the light emitted from the iron (a dull red glow) would be said to have a color temperature of 3000K for the purposes of color photography. Sunlight measures about 5500K and film balanced for sunlight (daylight film), will assure 'true' color rendition for objects reflecting the sun. Photographic, or Xenon, flash creates a light source with a color temperature of about 6000K. AlienBee flash units come with a standard flash tube which measures 5600K, and is daylight-balanced for film. We also offer optional UV-coated tubes, rated at 5200K.

The kelvin (K) is the standard international unit of thermodynamic temperature. At sea-level, on Earth, water freezes at 0Â°C or +273.15 K, and boils at +100Â°C or +373.15 K. A temperature of 0 K corresponds to -273.15Â°C. So to convert a kelvin temperature figure to Celsius, subtract 273.15 and vice-versa. The size of the kelvin "degree" is the same as the size of the Celsius "degree." A change of plus-or-minus 1Â°C is the same as a change of plus-or-minus 1 K. There is no such thing as a minus kelvin figure. A temperature of 0 K represents absolute zero, the absence of all heat.
