Help is always welcome. Smile

I just don’t want people to get confused about FW3A project status. As far as I’m aware, emitters are already taken care of.

the list does not seem to update?

The BLF list was updated 3 days ago. It does not update itself though; I have to do that manually.

I’ll try to clarify that next time I update it. The “automatically generated” part is true, but it means a script takes a very long list of posts as input, and then generates the list seen in comment #4. So the request numbers are not particularly meaningful, and are simply a side effect of the order requests happen. Request numbers aren’t guaranteed, because if I find any errors in the list, or if anyone cancels their requests, all the numbers afterward will change. There is no “Bob cancelled request #123, so can I have that spot?” because it’ll move everyone one number lower instead.

The update process is:

  • Run a script to download new posts since the last run.
  • Run a script to display new posts one at a time so I can manually categorize each one.
  • Manually copy that list to the link above.
  • Run a script to convert the full post list into a human-friendly interest list.
  • Manually copy the human-friendly version to comment #4.

So a lot of it is automated, but it’s not fully automatic.

Production & ship date unknown. But getting closer each day. Thumbs Up
Post #1 says $36 for XP-L HI & $30 for Samsung
Final features will be pretty much those discussed in post #1.

My light had better be a CoolNeutralWarm White combo!

Nope, as long as it is a ‘Cool Neutral’ – True Neutral Whitetm XP-L HI below the BBL….. it is not important at all. Wink

I just thought of something...

This light is a triple.

There could be one emitter that's CW, one that's NW, and one that's WW.

Completely not worth doing, but it'll be the perfect tint!

I’ve done that before. It can give quite good results if you use the right emitters.

Mixing and matching emitters is fun.

I have one of my Emisar D4 lights outputting 4500K color tint. Using two 4000K XPL HI and two 5000K XPL HI

I mentioned this elsewhere recently, but it all goes well with the BLF Lantern, I could see a future flashlight mixing emitters on a board with separate channels for emitters for tint-ramping purposes. Form factor could be a D4 style light where each emitter has its own optic, or I’d be curious if a closely clustered quad like Clemence does with E21A’s could share the same floody optic for different color temperature emitters.

But the idea is not topical to the FW3A.

Looks the same as a normal D4, but 4500K tint. The output from the different emitter overlaps completely and you just see one beam with the new mixed tint. You can’t really even see mixed emitters were used unless you turn it on moonlight and look at the emitters or shine it a wall or piece of paper a few inches away on very low power.
