That’s the reason why I’m really looking forward to the FW3A with LH351D, based on Toykepper’s comment it should be nice for close range work or photography :

When I voted in the poll, I hadn’t actually tried LH351D emitters. It sounded really nice from what I had heard though, so I ranked it second. But after trying it (LH351D 5000K 80CRI) in person, in both 10511 and 10507 optics, I would rank it last. I don’t like the beam with either of the optics. With 10511 it’s smooth but way too floody. With 10507 it’s less floody but the beam looks a lot like a zoomie in wide mode — a flat(ish) wide circle with fairly sharp and colorful edges, and virtually no spill.

I kinda agree with this. For normal use I usually don’t like the flood beams of mule lights and zoomies especially the rough edges. Judging by the sound of it, I probably wouldn’t like LH351D under quad or triple optics either. But you’re right, they might be very useful for close range photography.

Is the PL47 really going to have that odd two tone body? It’s up on the Fireflies site with no colour option and the description is unclear. I always assumed it was just a prototype.

I like the champagne/sand/FDE/burnt bronze look with two tone. That’s what attracted me to this at first. If it comes in all black I will be sad.

Yes, we sourced back a head-strap to make it work as a steady headlamp.

Light is in dual tone.

Is dual tone means awful combination on first post? Head and tail cap from one light and tube from another .looks a bit stupid.

That’s unfortunate. I think many people were assuming the prototypes were cobbled together parts just for testing purposes. That is not an attractive look for a production light. Really hope they reconsider and at least give people a way to obtain a single-colored body.

I disagree. The very first post shows the light in it’s two tone configuration. How is that misleading? Someone comes up with something other than solid black and it is unfortunate? We all have our thing, I get that. I’d take it in all champagne color and be happy if it is single tone.

No one has said it’s misleading, I’m saying it’s unfortunate that they’re deciding to go this route. The first post has been constantly updated and did not originally have any picture in it. There were also pictures showing the light in single tone formats.

I’m not really into the two-tone look either. I thought it was that way due to making a prototype out of spare parts. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve gotten a mismatched prototype. But, looking at the first post, the two-tone light is far from the hardest part to look at. The marketing side of things always makes me a bit uncomfortable, especially when it has my name on it.

Ahh. I thought I remember the first post being different. It’s funny I guess. What brought me to this thread was seeing the two tone photo of the L shaped design in some search. “Cool!” was my reaction to it. That was my initial exposure. I have much gear in FDE or desert tan if you will, guns, knives, etc. Any flashlight with this motif I will be interested in. I plan on getting two.

I like the 2 tone as well. It’s nice to have something a little out of the box sometimes. Thumbs Up

Good move to have this light include a head strap. Fireflies is one of my fav flashlight brands now. As a tip, look into how acebeam has their head strap. They are the only company to have a rubberized material on the inner strap so that the head strap does not move around when placed on your head. Genious idea if you ask me

I guess those pictures misleaded us.

Sneak peak for PL47 prototypes. FF is still fine-tuning the final design. Expect a champagne color to match with your ROT66cool

Yes.I like flashlight color in last photo. Dual tone is very strange decision, seems they have problem in anodisation process , and make dual tone from defective hosts.

Could ff make at least 2 version of dual tone?
1)Black tube, white head and tail.
2) White tube, black head and tail.
Than I would buy 2 , and rearrange parts by myself))

Woah!!! Look at that! Solid champagne AND solid black! I can get two and mix and match. This will be welcome news on this thread. Can I see a black tube with champagne ends?…

And I admit I was misled!

Nichia 219b vs SST20 NW 4000K ?

I’ve been away from the forum for a while and I’m not up to date on new LEDs.
I have a few lights with Nichia LEDs and like them a lot, but I don’t know anything about the SST LEDs. What would I gain or lose if I get this light with SST20 instead of the Nichia?
I intend to use this light for relatively close-up use, so I want high CRI, and a smooth, wide, beam. I don’t want a tight hot spot.
