Color inconstancy refers to significant changes in the perceived color of an object across two or more different lighting conditions, such as daylight and incandescent light. This research focusses on defining the threshold of color inconstancy between generated D65 and A illumination through a psychophysical experiment. Although modern color appearance models provide equations to calculate the degree of adaptation, a neutral grey match experiment was completed to produce a more accurate D values for the experimental viewing conditions. Like setting an instrumental color tolerance experiment, a second, sorting, experiment was used to define the threshold of color inconstancy. This threshold is the color shift, expressed in color difference terms, required for observers to notice a color change across changes in illumination. In addition, the tolerance ellipsoid for each Munsell principal hue group was also established.
