Color of the clock

Recommended Posts

Hello.I have seen many pictures of 737 cockpits. All pictures with the Collins Style the Monitors and the clock have a blue colour. But if you use the Collins Style with the pmdg, the clock´s colour is a brown colour, the same colour as in the honeywell style.Why isn´t the clock blue with the collins style?Frank

Colour reproduction is a long standing point of discussion...A lot of the images on various repositories on the Internet have been taken with different white balance settings. Sometimes auto, which does not always work effectively, sometimes specifically balanced to incandescent, fluorescent, or daylight. The respective colour temperatures affect our perception of colour. A normal incandescent lightbulb will appear to cast an orange light if photographed with a camera whose white balance is set to daylight. If, however, you set the white balance to incandescent or manually to 3200K, the bulb will cast a more white light...The bulbs in the gauges are probably tungsten, but at a different colour temperature. So, certain images will display the gauges with a colder, more blue toned light than is actually the case, as the sensor's white balance setting is adjusted to display oerdinary incandescent bulbs as white...Hope this helps...The gauge lighting is not blue in real life...Andrew
