And the jaws hit the floor…

The above is the base shot, this is with the GT on Turbo…

5D MkIV at 1600 ISO f/4 0.5 sec exposure.

The remarkable thing? That water tower is 1.91 1.90 Miles distant!!!!! (I set up the tripod at a different fence post. Silly )

what focal length dale?
sure looks closer than 1.9 miles, at 200mm in the pic, unless you got some longgg glass you been hiding ! lol!

its possible, but that looks like more than .13 lux hitting it
heres a rough idea of what should of been hitting the tower at that distance.
fantastic job on that sir, its amazing it even touched it at all at 2 miles Shocked
ive got a tower i tried other night at 1.7 miles, but had to abandon the shoot b4 i could get any decent shots off
going to try again soon Thumbs Up

Went out to play with my GT, I need $$ someone $$ to put something cooler in mine. Maybe even a 70.2 , I’l sacrifice some throw for more lumens and cooler tint Sad

I understand Lumintops desire to end the group buy, being that 1500 lights, possibly more, are being sold off at very slim profit margins… but stinks to see all these new people still signing up for their first light last min.

I think for a while, I am only going to buy lights that are designed/created/developed by BLF members. FW3A was top of the list for my next light, but at this point and time I am leaning more towards the D4 even though just the firmware is a product of BLF AFAIK.
I think this will keep my lights quality and budget friendly for the most part.
Now, after saying that… I think BLF should collaborate on a headlamp Cool

I made that decision awhile back. I simply had enough “commercial” lights and the BLF lights that I’d been buying at full price knocked the socks off of them.

You’ll love the D4 but I won’t say it’s going to be better than the FW3A. But price wise… ? I think my D4 cost me $60 and I almost never use it on turbo. It’s still nice to have that option available.

Got it charged up… Took it out, called my neighbor who was impressed with my varapower ‘light sabre’… Lives around the corner, no direct line of sight, 150 yds as the crow flies..
I am on the deck waving it around, he is saying ‘where where.. I dont .. holy F****.. Honey look at this.. (laughing his ass off)… (wife)Is that Tony’s new light??? ‘
I am hitting trees and houses all down the block and Dan is just laughing and going OMG’. You could hear his daughter laughing.
He said the beam went pretty dam high. The VP I have wasn’t quite ready to do a comparo though…

Giggles is a perfect name
!

I did much the same thing last night.

I called my closest neighbor 100 yards away to tell him to look into his sunroom, but not at my home. Then I turboed it. He was astonished at the “daylight” that filled it. Next day I went over to show him what did it and he immediately started to chuckle (if not giggle) . He was amazed that the beam could be seen outside on snow in full daylight.

It’s just an amazing light. I still have no use for it other than to possess it. But amazingly while much more practical lights are here, the wife gets a kick out of the GT and hasn’t given me any static about it once she saw it. I have gotten static over the much more practical lights. Go figure.

The BLF designed lights are precisely why I no longer buy commercial lights.

By the way? Is there a new version to be released soon? If possible, I want the latest XPL3-HI technology, something more throwy… Something really special…

Anyway, pm me when it is ready (and please, be professional, don’t forget my tracking number Angry )

Your kidding, right? Please tell me your kidding.
“Something special”? This isn’t special enough? Do you know of another flashlight like this?
“Bored”? Gag me
“Don’t forget my tracking number”? Keep track of your own tracking number.
“Customer”? We aren’t customers, we’re participants and try to add something or ask questions.
Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe your kidding. I hope your kidding.

Not a flashlight guru, but like them just the same.

Coyotehawk (poor guy, so many new names Facepalm ) will add your names to his sign up list. You’ll see your name when he does the next update. It will be sometime mid January when you are emailed with the details of where to go and how to order. (Uses PayPal, btw)

You can also buy 8 of the Samsung 35E batteries for $40 at the same time as you buy the light. No sign up necessary for those. There are plenty of batteries in stock. Just add them at checkout.

Welcome to BLF, new members.

Ps, for everyone else, THE GROUP BUY IS STILL OPEN, BUT CLOSES TONIGHT! If you want one, say so in this thread so you will be included. Price is $157 shipping included. After that it could be $250 or whatever price Lumintop decides on.

All the latest updates are in post #1.

Just so people are aware, if we should happen to run out of the first 1500 lights (I doubt that will happen, but it is possible), there will be no guarantees for those over 1500. Although we will try to get lumintop to honor them with the next batch they are under no obligation to do so.

At the current rate of drop-outs we can except around 200-250 people to drop out (so the list could get to 1700-1750 people and still have enough, in theory), so this should not be a problem but I want to give fair warning since so many people are singing up here on the last day.

The alternative option is I close the GB right now and no one even gets a shot at the cheaper price. I figured people would at least like a shot at the GB price.

I think the group buy has ended. Maybe your names can be added if we have less than 1500 purchases. They will be recorded here if needed.

You guys will be included. It should be about mid January when you’ll get your emails showing where and how to pay.

I’ll wait and see where the design goes and how I feel about it when it’s closer to finished. Not a real big fan of the D4s look, but like the side switch. Loved the fw3a look, but can’t say the new look is as tempting as the original.

I know I was a bit back and forth on this light, and glad I did. Can’t beat the quality, and quantity, of light I got for the price with the GT.

I’m hoping…. No DHL notice but looking at my USPS Informed Delivery account, there’s a DHL handoff to USPS. If this is it, I could possibly get it tomorrow but probably Monday.

Order List – 818, 819, 886,
Paid List (556-10xx) – #47
USA
2 with Batts, 1 without

I assume each of my ordered lights should show up separately with separate tracking? Has anyone got multiple lights in one shipment/box?

Jason” I don’t think you have to keep up anymore. TA said earlier the GB ended at 12:00 midnight Central Time Friday 1-5-2018.

That was almost 2 hours ago…… Unless he revised his statemeng from earlier.

Jason, you can follow deadline that’s set. This is very successful groupbuy that last for very long. And Lumintop needs to make money too.
Of course that’s your or project team call.

I am waiting to send out anymore PM’s until all the existing orders are (almost) complete. So not to worry, there will not be any cutting in line.

Now the next set of PM’s could be a first come, first served basis if we should happen to sell all 1500 but we will cross that bridge when we get to it.

*There are only a few hours left till the GB closes. Say 3 hours so it ends at midnight central standard time.

Yours is from 183 to 198, it’s also less than 10%. So it confirms it is normal. Just to know more about GT before it reach me.
I am not complaining here. It proves that XHP35 HI is definitely driven very hard and give us 1.2Mcd of throw. Cool

That’s just color commentary. Lol. The last 8 or 10 hours were pretty hectic. Now it seems dead.

I was expecting him or someone to say it’s over. So I don’t know exactly who from the last group of people are in or out. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.
