Beamshots: i1r, k18, s1 mini, sc52, gt micro, h604d, sc700

I wanted to provide everyone with some comparisons of beamshots of these lights. Hopefully will help some newbies and the rest of us looking for something new make a better-informed purchase.

This is not a hard-core, scientific, closely-held-parameters set of shots, but the camera was set to manual exposure so each set of shots will give a good comparison of beam coverage and relative brightness. As many of you know, your eyes will adjust to available light, and the dimmer-appearing shots might not be that dim to your perception, given your eyes some time to adjust.

For the basement 50-foot-range shots, I set exposure to just blow out the brightest part of the SC700d’s beam, and then let the others fall where they may with regard to under-exposure.

For the moonlight closet shots, I went with the highest available ISO, brightest f-stop, and at 1/13s-a shutter speed that wouldn’t be too blurry. That 0.04 L SC700d shot is horrible as a photograph. There aren’t many photons to capture with my Sony RX100 iv camera!

I don’t guarantee that all the Zebralight lumens are as indicated, as I didn’t record what I programmed in. They look right to my eyes, though. Also-I grogrammed the GT Micro’s lowest moonlight value. It’s considerably dimmer than the default.

Thanks, CNCman.

I’ve been around, but bought my first LiIon light in November, then went crazy and bought the others listed here. For some crazy reason, I got really excited about different sizes and light types. I haven’t seen anything else that I just need to buy.

That Sony RX100 pretty much replaced my full-frame DSLR. I’m amazed by how good it is in terms of lens distortion, and sensor noise. The JPG output is mostly just as good as my Lightroom edits, too.
