Took the light in post 209 out for a dog walk. Really liked the difference.

Made it feel more like a floody headlamp with much more throw… Didn’t notice any rings, or edges.

Everyone should try this. If you don’t have a light that needs it now, you might in the future.

I understand what your saying. You could stumble upon something greater.

DC-Fix is a brand name. That is what is being sold here. There have been members who’ve tested other brands and found them to be less appealing. Someone said the other brand they tried blocked more of the light, rather than just diffusing it. Some of the other brands just don’t diffuse as well as DC-Fix. And some are just not as well made product, not as durable.

You don’t have to buy DC-Fix from Boaz. It’s not his brand. He just has access to it and sells it here for our convenience. If you find a local store that sells genuine DC-Fix brand, you could buy it there. Part of the convenience factor here is the size. I haven’t found any stores around me selling DC-Fix diffuser film in small sheets like this. All I’ve seen is large rolls for covering windows in a home. YMMV.

What makes this DC fix film better than other frosted window film?
dc-fix is at times considered a generic term . Like Kleenx or Q-tip..Ask me how I know .? For a long time I was selling a product that was sold to me as Dc-fix. It did a great job diffusing light…. and . Then one day I got Dc-fix that didn’t just have what looked like graph paper on the back side . It said DC_FIX on it. I kind of freaked out considering I’d been selling dc-fix for about a year and a half to some of the most beloved members on the forum . After comparing the two I realized I like them both almost equally ..So the easy answer is to just sell both I’m also selling other diffuser films that I offer to anyone and everyone interested …in my reply PM…And I always add extra samples of materials I carry with every order . So ask the question again ?? Why is Dc-fix better than other materials ? Light losses . materials that impart color or shift the beam .varying thicknesses for different applications ..lots of reasons ….All I offer is about 5 years of experience shooting light thru 100’s of materials… and about 6 other diffuser film that I like well enough to sell .

Thanks for your explanation, is this film good for making a long light diffuser, like a saber?

No, it spreads the light out, takes out rings, reduces throw a little.

Well, it might be good for a saber, depending on the size/shape of the tube used for the saber. But, I think most tubes that are good size/shape for saber use are already frosted, right? Also, I don’t know if DC-Fix is flexible enough to stretch over the rounded end of a saber tube. I’ve never tried it. If you figure all that stuff out, and have a tube you want to use that isn’t frosted already, I think DC-Fix could do the trick. Oh, one other thing to consider is that most DC-Fix will have some kind of visible pattern texture on the surface. In fact, I don’t know if any of them don’t. Someone else would have to answer that.

I received a few pieces of the DC Fix this week. I put it on a couple lights with mostly XM-L2 emitters to get rid of the greenish corona. The result was actually brighter and smoother than the photos show.

This is a Thorfire VG-10S side by side before and after—-

A couple Sofirns side by side the similarity to the Thorfire is obvious.

Also a couple different Thorfires side by side one has a warmer tint.

I’ve been pretty impressed how much it knocks out green tints in certain lights . I’ll also been a bit hesitant to sell it as a green tint killer but it did the same thing to my thorfire xpl 4AAA lights .
I think I’m allergic to green ..
Thanks again for the nice pics

Received my order very quickly, just haven’t decided what light to try it on first. Maybe my Zebralight h53c, which has a slight green tint. Thanks, Boaz!

Hello! As I understand from the reports, then you can buy a diffuser (film) for Emisar D1?
Please clarify how this is established. Very interested. I’m from Ukraine.

I love this stuff. Just put some on a Lumintop ODF30 last night. I couldn’t get the bezel off so I had to trim very carefully to fit it from the top. Damn, it really did a nice job of blending the beam and getting rid of some of the green and yellow in the beam. I didn’t use the light much because of the weird colors. Now I will be using it much more often. I didn’t get a before shot but I got an afterward. If someone has a before please post it. I would but it was a pain to get it on the lens and I’m not taking if off and going through that again. Big Smile
