Astrolux FT03 is $33.99 at Banggood through May 21 - SALE CLOSED

Just the required discussion thread for the post HERE.

Quote:
Astrolux FT03 on sale for $33.99 at Banggood through May 21st. No coupon needed. As usual, BG points cannot be used on “promo” items such as this Flat Stare . Standard shipping from China is free for me in the U.S.

Coupons remain available for this light and may offer even lower prices, so check around. I’m just reporting a sale price.

Note that only 6500K Cool White and 5700K Neutral White emitters are currently available. We don’t know when 5000K SST40’s will again be available in a batch of these lights.

I’m not making any claims. If you don’t think this qualifies as a “deal”, that’s perfectly fine Wink .


Edit: Sale is over. Feel free to search for coupon codes.

I don’t know anything about this LED, are the warmer tints lower lumens?
Is the 5700K less bright then the 6500K?
Also if the 5000K comes back in stock, is it lower in lumens then the 6500K?

I haven’t seen tests comparing the different temps with the SST40. This emitter is basically an improved XM-L and behaves like other LED’s, so yes, 6500K will likely produce more lumens than 5000K, but the difference shouldn’t be dramatic.

I have a 5000K FT03 and I like it, but you should choose the 6500K if you want the most reach possible. Color temperature really isn’t terribly important on a dedicated thrower, IMO. I was worried about weird halos and an uneven corona, but I’m quite happy with the tint on my Neutral White FT03.

I imagine that the 5700K is a good compromise, though I don’t think we’ve seen beam shots from that tint.
