finally got some pics of my 5500 to post

 

interior shot showing stock 35w ballast in its plastic case.

metal wire clip holding the bulb base to the reflector's opening

target house at center is approximately 430 meters

control shot

TK 41 turbo

DBS v3 Aspheric with 1.5a pill.

sm5500 - stock 35w ballast / 35w bulb (6000k)

sm5500 - 55watt ballast / 55w bulb (4300k)

that house really felt the brunt that night.just made sure no one was home before we took those shots. next pics will be at a longer range.

I think you can fine tune it for significantly better performance.  It should look like a star with the brightest hotspot (not necessarily smallest hotspot).  If you have a lux meter then it's a piece of cake by memorising the position (rotate left/right, move up down left right, just need a lot of patience screwing and unscrewing it.).  If you have a lux meter and give me readings, i'd be able to tell you if it's good to go.  Smile

Amaretto got interested in it as well and purchased it, and modded the heck out of it as well.  Money Mouth

i just dont understand why this beast doesnt come with the adjustable stand.

you can see there  is a provision for it to be attached. that is one thing i need to do a mod for. tried to fit a costco light adjustable stand but its too wide.

It comes with it, probably just out of stock from the factory (Sunfat HK) or something.

hey, has anybody got one of those sanmaks that run on a cig plug, no internal battery? i’m thinking of getting one and modifying it to run on an internal battery but i’m not sure if that’s possible.
