Is the Brinsea Standard Candler powerful enough to view brown eggs?

    I just ordered an incubator and am getting ready to order a candler. Brinsea has two kinds: high intensity (for dark eggs) and regular.

    My question is: do I need the hight intensity light for candling brown egg layers (breeds in my signature, below).

    Thanks for your time!

    I have the high intensity candler and there are some eggs I cannot see into, anyway. But I can see into many brown eggs.
