DC-Fix Diffusion Film Sale

2 - 3 1/2" x 6" sheets of  "The Famous Dc-Fix" shipped to your door only $3.50  

Add $1.50 for extra sheets 

 +$1.50 - international shipping 

 I  had been using everything I could find to make interesting diffusers. Medicine bottles ,water bottle caps ,coffee creamer bottles,caps and lids, odds and ends .Usually with pretty poor results.

 Dc-fix will take a really bad beam and turn it into soft buttery smooth delightwith amazingly low light loss (3.2% ) I've found myself using more and more diffuser film to  soften  artifacts ,cancel out ugly rings and create a floody smooth  beam . If you've wanted to try it ...

   PM me with your address,...hit my paypal and I'll ship you some. Thanks !

 

Pics added :

 

  xpl emitter with a yellow hot spot ,ugly green in the corona and bad tint shifting all thru the beam.

Before

 

AFTER  dc-fix added

this film is some of the best – really cleans up a beam! I have it on many of my lights, easy to apply. Recommend it!

Fantastic stuff, I have it on throwy lights to broaden out the beam. Two layers gives all spill, no throw. I have heard it absorbs only a few per cent of the light.

I would like to see an example of the product being offered. As I understand it, there are different types/levels of diffusion available. Thanks, Ed

[Is this the ‘sand’ or ‘moire’? Product #?]

People just refer to it as “dc-fix” because it seems “sand” is the only one that works well for flashlights. If I’m not mistaken, the others don’t really come close.

  Selfbuilt did a test on it on CPF  and came up with the  3% loss number .

 It's definitely as good or better than any other diffusion material I've ever used  . I use it on the S2+ Convoy lights that I originally didn't like as much as the S2 Convoy because they were to floody  . This just makes them a beautiful smooth beam which I like much better .

   It also kills all those super ugly rings from really ringy lights like the Tank007 566 lights . It took me a long time to start using diffuser film because i somehow thought it was cheating or going to kill a bunch of lumens .I agree with "Jacktheclipper"   it's a nice addition to lots of lights .

 Certainly one of the cheapest things you can do to dramatically change or fix your flashlights beam pattern .

 S -series Convoy tube lights in a nice tint with dx-fix on the lens makes a great 'round the house light

Ah yes, this should be called Mag-Fix. It makes my old MagLite have a nice smooth beam. Big Smile

It’s good for the xtar but I ended up Using a super heavy film (not DC fix) to get the flood I wanted.

Did you change the emitter as well, or just try the film? Is the DC fix good, but just not good enough for this?

I pls on reflowing a Nichia 219C on mine…

I swapped to Nichia 219. The film is good for many applications. I just wanted a very floody beam and it wasn’t enough for the xtar.

Boaz,
Thanks for bulk-buying this for us, and then sending little strips of it all over the world.
What a hobby!
PP sent.
Cheers,

Ouchyfoot to a New Member: Welcome CJ. Now you have to learn about buying an inexpensive flashlight and modifying it until it either blows up, or starts small fires on the moon…………

Hugh Johnson:
I, too, once lived a tragic and empty life. Then I found [portable] light.
You forgot to mention clothes. I sold most of my clothes to fund my light collection. This is actually fine, since I only go out after dark, and most people can’t see me.
Finally, I got my priorities straight.

If like me you're a beam profile snob

This diffusion film does a great job

Of creating a light

That is evenly bright

Why be part of the glaring spot mob ?

Received mine in the mail today. Thanks!

Now, which flashlights should I try first? Glasses
