Nitecore NU30 before and after. Used the film that says dc-fix on the back. I think this has adhesive.
What might be hard to see in the before is the horrible squarish shape of the hotspot. It has be dc-fixed……

   It helps a lot .

 I have it on most of my floodier lights and I think a wider smoother beam reduces eye fatigue.

 The tint mixing helps even on the best of  the best of tints . I have it on a Lumintop tool with a 219B that I just love .It makes the tint noticeably nicer  . When doing white wall "best of the best High CRI picks" I always  look down and see it's the one with the dc-fix on the lens. If the runner up is 95% as good as my favorite it's enough of a difference that I can tell which one is better .I'm more than willing to dethrone it for something better... but that won't happen anytime soon .

  Seems like it's usually just trying to figure out how bad of a tint I'm willing to live with ,or conversely if I like a light well enough to do an emitter swap on it .

  Adding diffusion to a beam is one of the simplest ways to Fix it.

Pretty good question I've never had it on a really hot light like the D4 .I've had some other diffuser material loose on a Q8 as a cut disc loosely between lens and a light sabre type wand that has some slight deformity to the material but still works fine . I've never wanted to do real life heat testing since I'm quick to turn down lights that are getting too hot anyway . I have some film that no amount of heat is going to affect it,But am equally curious at what point dc fix starts to degrade .

  I had some nice green filter material and was impressed with the color ...so I went into a darkened bathroom to get a real look at color and thought I'd lost the round disc off the lens in transport and realized my D4 had burnt three quick holes thru the material ..Nice color but no ability to handle heat . 

   I've never heard anyone comment about heat issues ..I'm guessing it's pretty high

Sometime ago I put the DC-Fix on the Emisar D4 and never had a problem, even with it on turbo. Of course, I didn’t make “extensive” use of turbo many times or for a very long period of time. Still, it didn’t have any problem.

I also used it on my Amutorch AM30 (with XHP70.2) for some time on Max, and had no problem concerning temperature and material damage.
Only reason why I took it out was because this is a thrower and the DC-Fix made it floodier. Still, it made the beam even, annulling those yellowish rings on the flashlight (provoked by that led under a big SMO reflector)

I just linked the photo so you would have an idea how it worked on the Wowtac.
Its cheap enough to try others but be sure to get the DC. It seams to do the best all around.

Goodluck.

Yes I have sold out and become the very definition of a BLF shill Silly

  Believe me ....every penny earned is given back to the flashlight community. It all goes toward battery testing ,tint evaluation,light juggling,modern light art dance theory and shelf building. 

 

Congrats Nev you won the last  dc -fix giveaway .

 Your fix is free

Yes, and is sold in (some) stores in large sheets and/or rolls. DC-Fix is arguably the best brand of this kind of stuff. Lots of the members here have found it to be a wonderful way to smooth flashlight beams, especially on flashlights that have bad artifacts in the beam. Sick

Boaz is selling small pieces, so that members don’t have to hunt down and buy a whole roll of the stuff themselves. Not every store has every type of film, and not every member has use for several linear feet of the stuff. Big Smile

And thanks for this too! Yes, i assume anything i get won’t be as good as DC-fix but as long as it’s good enough i’ll be happy. Only for one torch really so not too fussed if it doesn’t work.

Anyone ever tried it to “unfry a egg”?

Got a bunch of lights (pretty much all the LuxPros I got, that seem to all use XP-G3s), and there’s that hideous yellow corona around an otherwise decent white hotspot, and a pale blue spill. Rather nasty fried-egg beam…

They smooth out that any, or just artifacts like rings?

Unno, I have no idea what each different type of film does, so I wouldn’t even know which one to use. Only way to find out would be to try ‘em. LOL

90° TIR in my RJ02? I like the 60°, but the 90° has an annoying ring around the periphery.

My favorite non-flashlight things?

LOL


I thought you LIKED fried eggs! I’m confused! Facepalm Silly

Hey, I love ‘em (over medium, usually; hate when the eggwhite is like snot), but not in my beams.

I wish I could stick TIRs in there. Maybe the 2×AA light, but the 4×AAA one and expecially 2×D light are way too big in diameter.

I’ll poke around those posts, see what gives… hjeh. Big Smile

I’ve been wanting to try this. Had to get some for a window of all reasons (off of Amazon), but I tried it on one of my lights first. I have just gotten the Wuben E01. Great little AAA light except for the rings and yellow corona when using close up. Took me a while to dial in the correct size on scrap paper (cuticle scissors work really well for the round cut). My cuts weren’t perfect, one edge is not quite so (minor artifact on the edge of the beam), but it is close to 99%. The rings virtually disappeared along with the yellow corona. I wished I would have taken some before pictures.

Now it is a near perfect light. The adhesive didn’t appear to be that sticky, so I hope it stays on OK.
Can’t wait to try it on my AA light. The others are good enough — I’m OK with them — for now anyways.
