Comparisons of different flashlights

Closer view

Unfortunately a little haze appears in some shots.

Thank you, makes the images fit screen for everyone on any device, monitor or what ever the resolution they are using. I am on a 50 inch 4K monitor and they were still BIG. Big Smile

And again, thank you for the great picture comparison of great lights.
K70 certainly burned a hole in the haze.

The haze is pollution and humidity. No way to get rid of it, you can only reduce the effect by taking photos of warmer beams.

That said, I think they really enhanced the looks of the beamshots Glasses Good stuff, thanks for posting!

I think that a way to reduce the effect of the haze is taking shots from a different angle respect the beam. At least, in this way, the luminous haze doesn’t cover the subject of your photo.

Adobe Lightroom has a “dehaze” feature that works quite well, but then it would classify as a “photoshopped” image. Smile

To me the ultrafire WG-018 turned out to be the star of the show, too bad they look to be discontinued Sad

They are not discontinued but were replaced with a model working by 26650 batteries as probably they realized that few people have 32650 batteries and also the chargers accept usually just the 26650.
Also note that the same torch is marked with many different brands each with a different output! Initially I had bought this torch with another brand (I forgot the name) and it had a ridiculous output so I gave it back. The version named Ultrafire has the bigger output with about 7000 lumen. 6500K I think.
The version with 21 led has less output respect the version with 18 led.

Me too like most power throwers but with at least a little spill around the hotspot, like the Acebeam X65. I don’t like very small blinding hotspot with absolute dark all around like the Thrunite TN42.
