    I am new to Ecotech Radions and after a great while I have managed to set my radions to the AB+ schedule.
    Programming is not that easy I believe.
    Unfortunately this setting is not the best to take photos.

    How can I add a more "white" setting without loosing the original schedule?

    I bought some orange lens filters and just hold them up to my camera. It's not perfect but it's easier than working with the Radion or camera programming

    If you have it on an apex with a WXM, you can setup a virtual outlet for picture taking. Just make a light profile for each light setting, and a virtual outlet for each profile. I have several, one for Photos, Coral viewing, Fish Viewing, and several different colors.

    No apex... and not a fan of the yellow/orange filter.
    But I see that there are some presets available on the Ecotechsmart Live app.
    Anybody an idea which of these is good for photo making with dsrl camera?

    I have a custom "daylight" preset that I made after taking a few hundred pictures. Its more of a full spectrum setting and works well for us. I would try out a couple different temps and tweak as needed. Once you find your favorite color save it as a custom setting so you wont lose it
