Backyard beamshots .......added more

I guess this is more of a beam comparison than an output one because the camera seems to have auto adjusted something. I tried to use manual settings but this camera has me befuddled Tired The hotspot on the first 2 lights are brighter than the others but it doesn’t appear that way in the pics.

Nice job! Do you have trail pictures?

I might get that done. It’ll have to be spread over a couple of nights though. It took me a few hours making the OP – take pics, check them on the pc, adjust camera settings re-take the pics, upload etc…

Not the highlight of this house, Sick Moved in about 8-9 months ago. The missus is happy with inside and this is the highlight for me…

Good, the faster the plants grow the less I have to look at the wall Flat Stare I don’t dive so the divelight is not used in water. It’s sold as a ‘starry light dxm’. I bought it before it got branded to play with the stepless dimming. It seems like a well made light for the money. I would have no problem dunking it but I’m not sure how reliable it would be for actual diving use?? It is a one piece design and the tail has 2 thick O-rings that are squeezed tight but the front end is like a regular torch, not a dive light with a handful of screws securing the lens.

Mancave. With a few switches flicked on then everything is ready to go – drill, 2 grinders, lathe, air compressor, vacuum, dremel, hobby chargers, soldering iron, heat gun, wall fan, stereo… I think that’s about it Crown Of course, there’s maybe just a little bit of junk thrown in Oops

Damit! It’ll be a let down when you see it. I don’t know why I can post the beamshots but not a mancave?? Try again…

Also got a late runner. I took the pics last night but got the E14 in the mail today

I think I’ll change the title as I have some outdoor shots Party Innocent

In the line up there are 20 torches but I didn’t take a pic of the 1504 as the camera battery was running low and I didn’t think that pic would be that interesting (a little square of light off in the distance). Also in the DQG pic you can see the side of my arm at the edge, sorry… yes I know… very unprofessional Sick

Pics are take in order of the line up, right to left, front row then back.

TK61 XHP70+LUM, BTU shocker, TK75 (3 emitter). You have to love these three.
What a difference in the TK61’s with the different led and reflector. Was the XHP70 3C tint?
Thanks again for the shots.

What’s the difference?

One is a light that a great BLF member worked on for me (remember that? Wink ) . It has the big KD reflector in it and a dedomed xp-g2 s4.

The other is one I worked on all on my lonesome. Fet driver, dedomed (slice method) xhp70 and the faceted reflector.

I really should write down the light specs including led tints because honestly I have no idea what they are, sorry. I even tried to back check what I have ordered in the past but that didn’t really clarify anything Sad

I reckon I’ve driven around there. Lots of different types of plants. Wink
Looks like a good place to get the motored two wheels dirty.

Cool lights dehc111. I haven’t used the xhp50 at all. I don’t know why it hasn’t sparked that much interest for me??

I was away for the long weekend just gone and got some quick beamshots with my phone. The 2 lights used were Tk75vn and TK61wKD reflector.
The 2 distances, measured on nearmaps, come in at 170m and 248m


I thought I took a zoomed in shot of both lights but apparently I only got the tk61 Facepalm

Using the 2 lights together was great for spotting. The tk75 lit up a broader area so my eyes could focus better and the tk61 highlighted what I was trying to see. Sorry no pic of that (not enough hands Sick )

Nice shots pp. I’m with you on the preference for medium sized multi reflectors over the single large reflector.
