OK, my first try

Hm, here is a direct link

Finally.

@TK
Is that better?

I used Jerommels GT Logo. He has the BLF from the Q8 logo.
So it would be consistent.

Does anybody know which font the text is?
This would be helpfull for future projects too!

I got the GT Logo from here:
Discussion thread GT logo

I like it!

I also would be okay with the BLF LT logo like joechina made, done in the style as GT logo.

I like the LT one too but two things.
1. Won’t Lumintop complain about the Logo being too much like the GT one?
2. LT = Lumintop. Who is supposed to be making this light? If it’s Lumintop then we are good.

I vote for the LT design with the lantern logo. I think it’s far enough away from the actual GT logo with lumintop’s rabbit to be worrysome.

However, if it makes everyone uneasy with LT being possibly confused with Lumintop, then how about BLF-UL (Ultimate Lantern) or BLF-ULP (Ultimate Lantern Project).

So what does the T stand for in LT, Budget Light Forum Lantern T?

The BLF-GT logo was made up here on BLF, including the idea of putting the rabbit in the middle so it is not a Lumintop logo at all. It was derived from the BLF-Q8 logo that was also made by a BLF member

Not a fan of how these sound if you sound them out as one word (which the brain tends to want to do)…

BLF-UL = Bull full
BLF-ULP = Bull fulp

BLF – L10 comes to mind, but Nitecore already uses L10 Sad

Or perhaps BLF – L1 I believe this is the first lantern, I could be mistaken

I really like the BLF Lt Logo, also I would support the use of 3000K/2700K&5000K LEDs and what speaks against increasing the output to around 1000lm ? Sure are 500lm enough in most situations, but 7135 chips are cheap and the the LEDs would support the higher output. In the worst case we would need to add some cooling fins to deal with the higher heat generation, but that’s no big deal and sometimes the higher output could be handy when you need to light up the whole campsite.

About 2700K vs 3000K, last I checked, the 3000K emitters go one efficiency bin higher than 2700K. So 3000K would probably be about 6% brighter than 2700K. They’re rated at 340 lm vs 360 lm, while 5000K is at 400 lm.

So, that might be a consideration.

  • 2700K + 5000K: 17.6% brightness difference
  • 3000K + 5000K: 11.1% brightness difference

Aside from this 11% or 17% difference though, the brightness should stay constant while changing tint.

As for the tint adjustment, there should be up to 255 steps along the tint spectrum. At least at full power, the top of the ramp. Lower down, the tint resolution gets more coarse because the numbers are smaller. At a low power level like 20/255, there would be only 21 tints available. And at a super-low level like 5/255, only 6 tints: 5/0, 4/1, 3/2, 2/3, 1/4, 0/5.

So the bottom of the brightness ramp might skew color sideways a bit as the resolution gets coarse, but I doubt it’ll be noticeable during use.

How about BLF@LTN to give it some balance

I agree LT is confusing and also missing a letter.

Don’t like lights that someone feels the need to put their name on .

I’d rather it be a BLF light than an ego booster .

BLFCamplite

BLF Happy Camper

BLF Campfire maybe a flame in between camp and fire like ultrafire uses.

BLF Nite Lite

BLF Campgear

BLF Equip

BLF Tacticool Gear

BLF# RCL (Really cool lantern)

The ones who prefer warm tint don’t care about 18% less luminous flux. If more luems are neede, it is still possible to increase the color temperature.
I’m sure 2700K will be much appreciated.

I’m for 2700K on the low end as long as we get at least 5000K on the high end. Wink To me, the more “spread” we get, the better. I’d be okay with 2000K + 6000K even. I’m confident that TK’s mixing will make it all look good. Wink

I feel like I’d regret not getting a second one, so could I add my name again to the list please? I’m already on #431 for my first one.

xikteny is number 875 on the interest list, if the price is not right no obligation to buy one.

I hear you, I am on the list for 3. Your second lantern is number 876 on the interest list.

That second name would be more appropriate if the light had a $1000 price tag and fancy marketing about how it was handmade by virgin monks, with uniquely advanced quantum engineering inside, to cure all manner of physical, emotional, and spiritual ailments. Because then it would be pretty undeniable that we think the sun shines out of our, um, “Artificial Sun Shine”. Big Smile

(At least the part about quantum engineering would be true. All common computer chips rely on quantum mechanics in order to function, because that’s how transistors work.)

I’m sure Ultimate Camplighting Kit is out of the question… Innocent

SkyLantern has grown on me. You could do one of those fancy logos with “BLF SL” and have a Chinese lantern in between. I tried to make one but I’m apparently… artistically challenged. Sad

That is the funniest thing I’ve read in a long time.
Not only are you the smartest person I currently know (as far as light goes)your eloquent writing and sense of humor could propel you into a successful comedy writer career or a stand up comedian.

LMAO!

2700K at the warm end tint would be great, worth losing a little output & efficiency to persevere circadian rhythm when sitting around the campfire but a little additional lighting is needed at night
