Just to clarify any confusion, I was talking about 'white' LEDs, as commonly used to replace filament bulbs. IIRC, these work by either emitting in the UV, which stimulates emission from 3 colour phosphors to simulate the visible spectrum, or by emitting at short wavelength visible and using a complementary colour phosphor for the other part of the spectrum. The latter type do not emit in the UV.

Re: Lens Fungus

On a tangent here, and probably worth of an entry at Pseuds Corner in the 'Eye, just had a thought, the light-bulb moment! The fungus could add a creamy effect to the images. And if the fungus is active and growing, no two images will be the same. Pack away the UV lamps and the formaldehyde!
