"Warm" white vs "cool" white refers to the tone of the colour. A warm toned white, beige, red, grey has some yellow tinge...making it a warm, sunny or soft toned colour. A cool toned white, taupe, red, grey has some blue tinge...becoming a cool, wintery or crisp toned colour. Warm vs cool is used to describe this subtle difference in lighting, skin, paint, clothing and indeed colour in general. Wishing you all a toasty warm and fun cool holiday 🌟😎

The way the light cuts out on your camera from the cheaper lights it's kind of like with a LCD or LED TV when you go to a certain angle the screen blacks out but when you go to the center of the screen it's nice and bright and vibrant

Great video. Thank you. Looking to get lights to decorate outdoors for the first time for our family! I didn't know much about outdoor lights, so this was a big help! I DO know quite a bit about filmmaking. :) There are several factors why they lights can dip in and out in camera. It can be the FPS, but more importantly is what shutter speed you are filming at. I'm not an electrician either so may not say this correctly... but essentially you have to match the shutter speed to the frequency the lights are conducting electricity. So play with the shutter and you'll see different rows of lights flickering SUPER fast or rolling slow until you find the correct one.

I love that these days you have to preface everything with "I'm not an expert," or "Now I will show you my ignorance on the matter," or 'Not that I'm an electrician," etc, etc. It shows how sensitive people have become and how likely they are to assign liability for their own mistakes. Great video, but I'm sorry that the evolving American culture requires all the fine print..!

I’ve been the “going overboard” guy of our street re: Christmas lights for quite a few years.
Cool video. After all the years/products I’ve personally used/gone through, over the years, what I’m always wondering is:..like the “better mouse-trap” stories......when is some smart company going to come up with inventing a completely weatherproof, single-strand (or “wrapped” single wire) “guaranteed to stay-lit” Christmas light set, that has all the lights facing the same direction, and that comes with a proper “keep your set wrapped properly for storage” piece of hardware?.......(we can dream, can’t we?:-)

I have no idea about bulbs for Christmas stuff. However I know how to string popcorn for tree decorations and as well know how to make a tree bells ornaments out of egg cartons and a bit of tin foil. Christmas is about the celebration of CHRIST. Give socks and bloomers. Oranges and apples are good also. Great video and happy holidays to you and yors.

@8:20 - The lighted length has effectively nothing to do with brightness vs. power usage. Only the number of lights, which are the same***. As for the camera "losing the lights", yes, it has to do with the camera frame rate. The cheaper ones are using straight AC from the plug, with maybe a capacitive voltage dropper (just changes the voltage, it's still 60 Hz AC). The more expensive ones probably convert AC to DC, using a switching supply to keep the voltage more stable.
***Yes, Virginia, for identical LEDs very long strings will be slightly dimmer for the same power - too small to notice in most cases. Even less noticeable for AC strings than DC, but at 120 volts... I'd be surprised if you could tell the difference with your eyes alone. Unless the string was half a mile long or something equally outrageous.

My problem these days is the non replaceable bulbs. I bought some at the big box store and a few have burned out. I asked if I could replace one with new bulb and was told no. This is the 2nd season I have had these and think its crazy I can't replace the bulb. Can you look into hacks on how to replace burned led bulb in christmas lights?

The brightness of an LED comes down to the quality of the LED diode itself - not so much the texture on the lense. Cheaper LED Christmas light sets are only half-wave rectified.. meaning they cycle on and off at 60hz or less (which is why you see that weird phasing effect on the camera).. Premium LED sets use a full wave rectifier that cycles at 120hz, so the flicker is not visible to us. Color consistency has always been a problem with warm white LEDs. It's mostly a problem with quality control. Professional christmas light vendors have to monitor their product to ensure color consistency between batches but most big box store brands don't do this.

My 2 cents worth of info. If you buy the regular incandescent c-9 lights the length is 25 ft and the bulbs are spaced 12 in apart. A bonus to using these are you can cut them to length to fit your roof line very Easy. They now have led bulbs you can buy to replace the original ones when they burn out.

thanks for the video, does any of the lights have a slight flicker i know some of the led's i buy from dollar general or family dollar have a slight flicker and it's really annoying, im looking for leds that don't have that slight flicker or vibration you can not really notice it far back but when you get kinda close to the leds you see the slight flicker vibration within the led. not talking about an actual flicker it's like a slight vibration in the led. looking for leds that are calm steady like an incandescent.

For wrapping conical bushes like hollys etc, go with 12 inch placing. This year I switched to a 4 inch pattern and it strips like a candy cane vs. just blending in.... I don't like it because it's hard to make look good.

As a newbie to the X-mas lights last year, I made the mistake of getting the C6s at 4" spacing for my roof line. Clipping that many lights takes forever with them spaced that close together. Also buying so many boxes of clips, I could have probably gotten away a lot cheaper overall buying the C9s. At the time there was a huge sale at the Menards and I was starting brand new and was only looking at cost per lighted length when looking at the spools. Trying to get enough all in the blue that I wanted was also a challenge.

Lawn Radiance
Lawn Radiance 2 months ago

“Warm White”, “Cool White”, or “Daylight” is just referring to the Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) that those LEDs emit. Residential products are often simplified to these words but commercial side of things (light fixtures) you can specify these, some typical ones are 2700K, 3000k, 3500k, 4000K, and 5000K. The lower the number, measured in Kelvins, indicates a warmer color temperature. So your “Warm White” is typically around 2700K or 3000K, which can cause the variation on the different products from different brands. And technically two brands can say their CCT is 3000K but when compared side by side they are different, I won’t go into depth on this but it has to do with the variation of LEDs used and the wavelengths that they emit.

Also a PSA for anybody thinking of buying “Daylight” bulbs for their house... DON’T!!! Those bulbs don’t emit anything close to the actual sun color temperature and there is no comparison at all! They make your interior home just cold and awful. Buy bulbs that are either 2700K or 3000K, which would be “Warm White”

Do any of the packages list the lumens? Lumens are the brightness so the higher the number the brighter the lights. It'd be interesting to see what the difference is between them all.

Hey LCN, what are your thoughts on adding RGS, Microgreen, etc. to the water of your Christmas tree?

Gardening From Scratch

I want all new lights this year & thought about getting the micro mini lights for my tree, but unsure how they'll look or how many I'll actually need. I usually need 1200 lights of the regular little bulbs. Hope you'll do another light video! 😊

Kevin Bullington

Look up PWM (Pulse Width Modulation)... it’s basically a rapid “flickering” of the LED (measured in Hz) in order to dim the LED. Normally, the flickering is so quick, it’s not observed by the human eye. Sometimes the flickering matches up with the FPS (frames per second) of the camera and is recorded as a dark/light frame.

Snn 2 months ago

You should consider getting commercial lights. You can customize lengths and splice in between runs. Plus they are MUCH MUCH brighter.
