I'm with Dennis on here. K alone cannot tell you the color of the bulb. I've read K is independent of the phosphors used which affect coloring as well. But if anyone has got the best substitute to Amamo's 8000k (or is it 8800k) please let us know.

If amano's 8000k is blueish-white, isn't the better substitute 10,000k? I've heard the 8800k is really pure white; no green, no blue, no yellow, just white.

A suggestion of another was to to buy a 6700k/10,000k mixed bulb from PacSun. Should two separate bulbs of the same Ks do the same?

Opps, hit the edit button too many times.
