  1. Why does the White EL Wire look blue in every picture I’ve seen on the Adafruit site? Maybe something to do with your camera (I know how hard this can be)? The reason I ask is that I’m thinking these EL Wires may be useful illuminating objects in macro-photography. Thanks, Drone

  2. They’re not a pure white, the coating is pink to try to neutralize the real aqua color. So it has a blue tint, check the datasheet for wavelengths.

  3. @Drone: I would recommend against using EL lighting for photo work except as a special effect accent light. Their output spectrum is just not suited to rendering a subject well in a (realistic-looking) photograph, and you will be agonizing over (unresolvable) color-balance issues.
