SC600w Mk IV Plus, SC600Fc Mk IV Plus Beamshot Comparison? (Zebralight)

I was thinking of picking up one of the midsize Zebralights at some point and I’m having a hard time deciding between the versions with floody and clear optics. Does anyone have a floody lens zebralight beamshot to compare to a clear one? It would help a lot. BTW I am aware that the two lights in my post have different LEDs and max outputs. I’m really just trying to figure out how throw I would be missing out on and/or how ugly the beam might be on the clear lens version.

There is a beamshot of the SC600w IV plus on wikilight.de but not the frosted version unfortunately : http://wikilight.de/vergleich.php?a=467&b=490

With the clear lens version you can always add DC Fix or another diffusion material later. You can’t un-frost the lens of the “F” models without some serious effort and know-how.

That helps a some. It’s difficult to tell how uniform the beam is from that picture though but it gives me some idea of how much throw it has.

I get what you’re saying but I hate to add something like that. It’d be applied with adhesive right? Sick I’d rather figure out what I was getting ahead of time and choose whichever one is best for me.

No, there are “static cling” versions which adhere well with just a bit of water (or your breath) on the lens, and which are removeable at any time. I get your thinking too, but IMO the ability to change between frosted and clear at will is a big gain to utility.

Some beamshots here, the frosted version is the earlier gen using the XHP50 (NOT .2) but is still pretty representative of the the Mk IV will be like:

Clear lens

Frosted lens

I was going to post similar information, but instead, here’s the link for Bluzie’s beamshots thread on TLF:
https://www.taschenlampen-forum.de/threads/%c3%bcber-1-000-beamshots-mit...

Search for the lights you want and they may be there Wink

Good looks! Just in case you haven’t seen it there’s actually an updated thread here.

Thanks for the heads-up BurningPlayd0h Wink I didn’t know about that one! The constant “settings” from the beamshots are incredible for comparisons Wink

Thanks Wink
