LUX eyes problem.. urgent..:(

i've already installed the eyes on my car. It seems ok by human eyes, but it is very instable in any camera screen, flash all the time, and can't take any pictures in perfect visual..

I don't know if it is the voltage thing or something else..
any help? Please~~

You're pulling our leg, right? It's normal. How do explain without getting too technical. LED's pulse, they need to in order to give off a bright enough light, they are not on all the time like the OEM halogen bulb. The human eye can not see this. But a camera will catch the light between pulses.

Try a slower shutter speed on your camera. Should work

You managed to take pics.

Ergo, your lights must be fake/Photoshopped.

Not sure about this, or maybe what you mean.

Individual LED's are supplied with a low current, constant voltage supply in most applications; it is not a switched power circuit. If even less current is desired while maintaining higher light output, then yes, a switching/pulse modulation power supply is sometimes used.

all lights have a frequency. If you ever delve into photography, esp in cases where you need high speed sync (which basically pulses the flash very rapidly), you figure this out real quick after a couple green pictures... even though you're sure you set the white balance right haha
