    Ok, this is a photo of a Luxeon Star 1-Watt LED. Looks kinda' neat. I did get this odd "laser" effect from the photo.

    However, here is the issue. The LED isn't blue. It's green. The photo was taken with a 2.3MP HP Photosmart 318 camera. Interestingly enough, my new 5MP Kodak 340 Camera picks up the color a little better, now it's kinda blue-green instead of being just green. Has anyone ever seen this kind of anomaly with a digital camera before? I think part of it has to do with the LED's color "bandwidth" being very narrow unlike conventional light sources.

    I had the same kind of problem with my coolpix 5400,
    purple always turned out blue. Now with my D 50 all is good. Interesting... anywho that is a cool laser beam shot.

    With my olympus digicam i took some shots of street lights and they came out blue instead of green...must be a common problem.
