Lecture 19: Introduction to Color Science (21)

It is interesting to see that even the distributions of energy are drastically different for different light sources, we human beings perceive objects under those light sources more or less the same. This is in contrast to digital cameras, which are much more sensitive to different light sources.


Just as an addition, this is a pretty cool paper here describing the intersection between spectral power distribution and computer vision ( Specifically, this paper investigates a simple approach for calculating SPD by analyzing the absorption transmittance function and scattering along the path of solar radiation.
