Yeah that’s the only real bummer with the light so far for me. Don’t see why that clip couldn’t extend up to the edge of the tail and still mount the same way.

Another vote for this, at least as an add-on or option. While not necessarily a bummer for me, I would see this option as an amazing bonus!

I really like the Silver mat finnish of the prototype. And for now the poll for led and colortemp is going in the right direction!

It might be worth mentioning that the poll ended almost 3 months ago and recommendations were already sent to Lumintop.

The NFD25 is flat, designed to spread out the beam. So, not the right category of product. The NDF25 is a cone, and it technically fits, but it's not a good fit and not very useful as a diffuser cone either. It's basically transparent, doesn't emit light very evenly, and does weird things to the tint. There's also a stretchy silicone one, but it's difficult to put on, it isn't opaque enough, and it looks awkwardly like a stubby condom. So I'm still looking for a diffuser cone which fits well and is opaque.

Speaking of awkward looking diffusers:
I have this
https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32789377508.html
It works to illuminate a table. The small size fits barely a Q8
I like it's collapsible and I use it only on low.
The front output is much less than on the side.

Sorry if this is another dud.

I really don’t want to be “that guy” right now, but considering the pace of this project so far, would it be too late to consider re-polling LEDs to vote on replacing the Samsungs with Luminus SST-20-W 95CRI ?

They have 3000k and 4000k options available, if not others as well. Djozz and Maukka have tested these with amazing results. Better tint and CRI than the Samsungs (less green, better Rg values) and they will throw much better as well. CRI and tint of these compete with E21A 9080s with output in the same ballpark as 219C but definitely shy of LH351. Current vs Vf curves are almost the same between the LH351 and SST20 so current draw will likely be similar.

The emergence of these LEDs have got me extra excited/impatient for the F3WA. Ughh

It’s probably too late. Last I heard, Neal told me three weeks ago he had the final prototypes in hand, and was going to send them out that same day. Not sure what the delay has been since then, but it sounds like the only steps left are to test and approve the samples, then give a go-ahead for production.

Now, the anticipation again…
I’m very patient with these group buys. I haven’t bought a new light since the Q8 though, and I must admit I am excited that these seem to be close to ready.
I also hope all goes well, but as always, better to take as long as needed to get it right.

They are arrived and will be tested in the next days if there is enough time for it.

No double entries and if you wanna know if you’ve already showed interest to be “IN”, check post #2 !

I guess you’ll still have some time, but…it’s getting shorter Evil

Holy cow! You’re going to make some people very happy. I’m sure you’ll be happy with yours too. I’m on the list for two, but that might have to go up, pending emitter options. The end is near! I shouldn’t even say it, but it does appear Christmas presents are possible…
