The TCS34725 is probably the best color sensor on the market. It has a high sensitivity, wide dynamic range RGB and Clear light sensing elements. An integrated IR blocking filter minimizes the IR spectral component of the incoming light and allows color measurements to be made accurately. The filter means you'll get much truer color than most sensors, since humans don't see IR. The sensor also has an incredible 3,800,000:1 dynamic range with adjustable integration time and gain so it is suited for use behind darkened glass.
The sensor comes with supporting circuitry for 3-5VDc supply as well as level shifting for the I2C pins so they can be used with 3.3V or 5V logic. The sensor also includes an ultra-bright LEDs to allow the sensor to work without external light resources. This LED can be easily turned on or off by any logic level output.
