- To the pot 18,40 m
- To the white box 40 m
- To the hedge 55 m
- To the oak 120 m
- The distance between the iron pillars is 4 m

I love his shots but there is a problem with them. It appears that his “targeting changes from light to light. Soem lights appear to have a hot spot rign in front…..OR that could be an optical illusion.

What say you Bluzie?

.

The other thing is that beamshot against a wall is very important to me in order to see how the spread is between hot spot and spill. It’s hard to get an opinion on something like this because one’s man floody is another mans “balanced beam”.

Unfortunately, i do not know what you mean by ‘targeting’.
The camera and the flashlight are always in the same place, we have marks on the floor.
The orientation of each individual lamp is made by hand, we try always aim the spot on the white boxes.

First I missed your post just above mine where you gave us the distance. LOL!

I was looking at the beamshot of the BFL A6.

And the modifed Convoy S2

http://abload.de/img/comp_p11601693hlk4.jpg

Both of those are the lights I was looking at buying next.

On the BFL, you appear to be centering the hot spot just between the posts and on the second one, at about a meter or two from the feet of the tripod. Where the hot spot is aimed, that’s what I meant by “targeting”.

I noticed that because I was paying a lot of attention to he beam shots particularly since I want a floody light and those two lights in particular.

Do NOT take my comment as a criticisms, because I appreciate the ENORMOUS work you put it to give us all those shots. And of course, many thank you.

OH GREAT! Can I get 10 meter black and white wall shots with all the outputs of every light going back 5 years? Just asking….. Sick

A decade back, I used a Russian site to make up my mind about what to buy. Now, I’m looking at your site to decide between the colors and spread of a light. Particularly the BLF and Convoy.

About the shots…….how high are the lights? If they are at 1 meter, perhaps a “target” at 700mm and focusing the center of the light at it? That “should “ put the hot spot somewhere in the center of the garden. It would also have a relationship with eye level at 1.5 meters?

Have you already listed the methodology and I missed it?

Again, just a suggestion and by no means ANY criticism.

Bluzie, when you say, “the hedge” is 55 meters away, do you mean the pine trees behind the bench? And then the oak trees are the much taller the trees behind them, that a lot of your beamshots do not reach and light up ?

For example: My Olight X7 lights up the furthest trees with 9,000 lumens, but the Elzetta Charlie does not, am I correct? And do these beamshots closely replicate what the average human eye sees in real life ?

Hope not too many questions and too complicated Bluzie… Facepalm

I am still confused, I am not sure if directly in front of the beam is the hedge, and the oaks are behind the hedge, or what I am looking at. Also, there is a hedge running 90 degrees parallel to the flashlight beams starting right after the ending of the pavers. Also, there is one large tree by itself off to the left. Thank you for you effort.

Bluezie you the man!

I stumbled across your page when I was trying to determine what the different XPLs look like in real life. Not many people post identical set-up beam shot comparisons of different tints EXCEPT YOU! Big Smile

Thanks so much for all your hard work!

The thread were I was directed to your page:
BLF thread comparing 1A vs 3A vs 5D

Your beautiful beam shots I used to determine some buying choices:
BLF A6 showing all 3 common XPL-HI tints
1A

3A

5D

It really helped me a lot to decide on my PL47. Very happy with 3A…

now my problem is that I want to own or find someone who lives in my city who owns something in:
5D, 219B, 219C, SST-20 5000K, SST-20 4000K & SST-20 3000K

so that I can compare side by side and see if I actually like the look of super warm tints. I think I’d be ok with the SST 4000K but I want to see what 3000K looks like in real life!

until then at least we’ve got Bluzies spectacular beamshots! The only trouble with beamshot comparisons is that the A6 triple tint comparison is rare. most times he’s got shots of different lights with the different tints instead of the same light with a variety of tints/emitters. I find different lights show off the same emitter very differently. Like the 219B which looks good in a high power light but there’s multiple shots with low power flashlights where you can’t really tell what it’s like

 Updated 24 hours ago, I have been checking daily for K75 and MS18.

Many new items were added yesterday: K75, W30, X65 Mini Nw, Astrolux FT03, MF01S, and Fenix LR40R, and many others.

Thanks again, Bluzie!
