Is there something wrong with me if I go to your store and drool over things I already have? Seriously, you're making me want to re-buy things instead of just using the items sitting right next to me.

Well.  Now I'm certainly regretting not having placed my order earlier.

I'm extremely curious about the SRT7.  Will be interesting of it mimics a surefire I saw not so long ago, that also had multiple color LEDs.  Hopefully these aren't super cheap and just an add on novelty, but actually bright enough to be useful.

 

I apologize for the delays. We thought Zebralight would have learned and ramped up production after the SC52 fiasco. 

Not blaming you, rather I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to order.

How quickly did they send out a second batch of the SC52's?  If it's a matter of 1-2 weeks, the new armytek will tide me over Silly

Zebralight restocks have taken anywhere from a week to 2 months at the worst. Our best prediction right now is leaning towards earlier.

Mine arrive today! OMFG it’s so much brighter than my SC600w Smile


LICK FOR HIGH RES!
(sorry for the mess, have a track day tomorrow so had to charge my cams and junk)

Love love love this light. I’ll give it a try EDC’ing it but it’s quite a bit bigger than my current edc, the SK68 Smile

Can we see a comparison between the SK68, SC600 MkII and a SC52 (if you have one)

Thanks

You mean physical size, or beam shots?

Size comparison would be good thanks. I see the SK68 in the background, kinda hard to compare though

How low are the low modes?  On the SC52 they are just ridiculous (by that I mean great :D).

I can’t get the SC600 MKII to go as low as my SC600w, but it could be a level/programming issue.

I’m using a long press to turn on into low mode, double click to cycle between low and super retarded low. Same on both flash lights, the MKII is a lot brighter on it’s lowest mode. I’m not sure if it’s cause my other SC600 is a w/warm one or not.

It’s the same on my SC600 MKii vs. SC52. The SC52 low-low is like almost invisible. More of a “glow”. Here’s a pic I just took, from right above both lights. SC52 on the right, obviously:

Yikes, that’s as low as it’ll go? You’re long pressing to turn on into low mode, then double clicking for the low low?

If that still doesn’t do it try this:
Long press to turn on into low mode.
Hold the button down and it will cycle between three modes, release the button when it gets to the dimmest setting.
Try double clicking and see if it goes dimmer. If double clicking goes brighter you were already in the lowest mode.

Jamie,

The UI’s are similar, and yes, I tried what you said (which was what I did before), and the SC600 MKii low-low is definitely not as low as the SC52s. Actually, to me, it’s more usable, but I know that some love the almost invisible SC52 low-low :).

BTW, I kind of blinded myself checking this out (always happens :))!

Me too, I’m seeing spots when I blink, I didn’t think holding it down in low mode would cycle to a mode that bright! Whops Wink

I’ll do some “don’t wake the girlfriend bathroom walks” tonight with my SC600 MKII and see if it passes her “has to put electrical tape over the alarm clock display because it wakes her up when the numbers change” test Sad

The SC52 and SC600 Mk II have programmable M2 and L2 (previous models only had programmable H2). Set the light to low (either L1 or L2) and perform 6 double-clicks (12 clicks total). That will put you into programming mode for L2. Double-click to cycle through the available L2 levels. You should be able to get ridiculously low; maybe not quite as low as SC52, but it should be close. Turn the light off to finish programming L2.

Follow the same procedure to program H2 and M2.

Oh. Just tried it, and there are 3 lows… one lower than the default one and one higher.

Follow the same procedure to program H2 and M2.

Hi,

Is the default H2 the brightest? Or can you program the H2 to be brighter than the out-of-box H2? Obviously from my questions, I’m more interested in the high than I am in the low-low :)…

H1 is always the brightest, it puts the light into turbo. H2 is second brightest. I’m not sure about the factory setting. Try it. Wink

OMG you’re awesome! Worked FLAWLESSLY!!!


LICK FOR HIGH RES! (camera make them look brighter than they are, the MKII is super dim, to the human eye looks just slightly brighter than ohaya’s SC52 pic above).

Amazing!!! Loving the MKII now!!! They just need it in a high CRI or at least warm version and I’m done Big Smile

On the SC52, there are three low sub-levels.  Low, and three other super low to select from.

Personally I find the lowest one to be just too low.  The second lowest one, is fun... I just leave the SC52 on like that all the time.  Not like it will discharge the battery in under a month.

If the modes on the SC600 MkII are the same, this will be an absolute incredible light, and chances are it will run for months on end, if needed.

How is the strobe?  On the SC52, I really would have preferred they drop the medium modes, and get a decent strobe/sos/beacon modes in.

Heh. You thought it was “super retarded low” before. I want to hear your description now. Silly

I myself am patiently waiting for the SC52w and SC600w Mk II. Tired

I call it super retarded burnt out firefly mode now Wink

Here is the best pic I could take with my camera. The SC600w looks just a hair brighter in this pic than it does in real life, but the MKII is spot on. This was taken with a calibrated white balance and high CRI source for the background lighting, not sure if you can make out the tint difference between the two Smile

What’s the silver ring on the SK68? Mine doesn’t have that, maybe why I missed it

The silver ring usually denotes the three mode version (high, low, strobe, memory but starts in next mode :(). I’ve seen a 5 mode one with a blue ring as well.
