You can tell the exposure is turned up a little higher than what you have on a normal photograph. The key is that the night sky doesn’t look black. It’s a little bit light, but not too much.

Yes, it’s definitely over exposed. I find most people who attempt night time long exposure shots tend to overexpose the shot.

I edited the photo to show how it looks closer to the human eye. Once edited you can much more clearly see the X70 XHP35 HI hotspot that many claim is missing

Man, the X70 is the worlds current beast and next to the MS18 it looks like a moderate 4× 18650 light.

I’m seriously astonished at the difference between the MS18 and the X70. When watching other reviews Flashaholics did an amazing job showing direct beamshot comparisons between the X80GT, MS12 DX80 & X70. The single most surprising thing was how little difference there was between the DX80 and both the X70 or MS12. Now the difference between the X70 and the MS18 is like the DX80 versus the Acebeam X45

Can Acebeam even answer the MS18?? Seriously, with their pricing structure they would easily charge close to $1500. At that price even flashlight enthusiasts would need some sort of application where they could earn income off the investment to justify the price

im sure acebeam will do the x70-gt which leaked before if they wanna compete in the lumens war, but that was long ago before this light appeared so who knows, i think more like the price of such light would be 999$ or so…

From what I read the X70-GT was nothing more than a hacked cut & paste job by some photo editor. The pros on here also discredited the X70-GT claimed lumens based on the math?

yes fake but they did a good job on it lol, but like i said if anyone is gonna do one its acebeam, they did same with x80-gt, same host but more lumens so i would asume something same with x70 if they even gonna bother.

wasn't the X70 announced with 45000 Lumen and then boosted to 60k after Imalent unveiled the MS12?

so the X70 is already the GT (rumors I heared)

 

@mattadores:

thanks for the edited picture! 

that's even more impressive than the original one! 

 

about "overexposure" 

have you watched the video I made about that topic? 

 

I always make 2 or 3 takes of outdoor shots and always use the less impressive version Wink 

I think it's important to fix exposure and use different lights so people can see "that one is twice/half as brightas line"

but there are still reviews with automatic brightness controll where all lights look the same. ..

on Android one can look at "open camera" (great app imho) 

PLEASE NOTE
i do not work in "reviews, deals and codes" for the time being
maybe M4D M4X will return one day, but until then:

I measured the MS18 at 98000 lumens and measured the X80GT with same equipment at 27150 lumens instead of 32500.

And I will build a bigger lumen tube soon to fit all the big guns in it and it will be calibrated with Maukka lights.

Liked your video a lot. Anyone not familiar with photography can easily be fooled by long exposure images. Add digital photo editing and you’re done for!

Shown below is the Chinagreatbeam LHKKER WORLDS BRIGHTEST 1000x FLASHLIGHT with 175, 000 lumens running of 6x AA batteries! Check out these beamshots! The LHKKER actually puts out SO MUCH POWER it increases the temperature of the EARTH by 2 degrees Celsius!! Available from Ebay for $14.00

Also, did anyone notice that during his long exposure shot that a bug flew in front of the X70 and the light reflected off the bug allowed him to capture it’s flight pattern throughout the shot? That’s my favorite part!!

Holy crap, the MS18 absolutely annihilates the x70. That’s insane

I think that’s just the crazy lumens lighting up the sky Cool

I measured 25300 lumen for the X80gt. I am using Texas ace lumen tube with maukka calibrated light.

I review a lot of high powered lights and imo, the output of the MS18 in those pics is quadruple the output of the X70. To my eye and most often camera doubling the power is very subtle. I actually **** up in reviews ramping up to max instead of double clicking for True Turbo and I have to reshoot when I notice it in editing or don’t hear the double click in the audio.

I wonder if the X70 is in eco mode?

this item – with losses – is what a 1200 Watt light?
before I drop $600+ – how is this going to be cooled?
The previous Imalent “active cooling” was …. double-plus ungood …

Already been answered. See post #77

Most people can not afford it nor actually need it. So don’t expect the kind of lines you get for a $30 light. Assuming that’s what you mean.

Cost is why Ford sells more cars than Bugatti. I’m sure both have lines of people waiting to buy, but they are different size lines.
