Yet another Beamshots-thread (FTT, Thrower, n x XM-L)

Hi everyone!

Finally I had some spare time and thought that I could use it for taking some outdoor beamshots (requested by multiple members in some of my review threads).

All the following beamshots are taken with these settings: 44mm, 2s, f/5, ISO200, WB 5000K, distance to building about 90m.

Control shot

 

 

Then some flood to throw lights

Ready for some throwers?

Solarforce Masterpiece Pro-1


KD "RQ"


Fandyfire STL-V6


Cyclone C88 NW 3xAA


Cyclone C88 NW 26650


Fenix TK41


And finally some multi XM-L lights

Keygos 7 x XM-L


Trustfire J12 (3 x 26650)


Trustfire J12 (2x26650)


Skyray 3 x XM-L (v2, with drop-in design)


DRY NW Turbo


Skyray King NW


+ two bonus photos

Yes, the river was flooding and quite rough.


"Art"?


Thanks for watching. Hope you enjoyed the show! Smile

Ps. Mouse-overs will be created on request.

Wow, those NWs make for a pretty picture... I wasn't interested in anything NW until now...

If you had gotten the whole trees on one picture, you could sell that as a poster.

Wow beautiful shots and very informative.  The Dry still holds its own with its wall o' light.  Although that 35w HID is just ridiculously bright.  Thanks again.

Sure. That was "just a snapshot", in a minute, without any planning (when I was heading back home).

I actually thought that I got them, but obviously I was careless and didn't check properly. Wasn't too happy when uploading it to computer.. Embarassed

But I kind of liked the idea, so I might even go back and retry that shot later. Smile

Ps. Do you know the difference between a good photographer and a bad one? The good one doesn't publish any bad photos.. :bigsmile:  (Oops, that must make me the bad one?)

I mean, you were out there to make beamshots, not take pictures of trees, so the outcome is pretty nice, huh? Smile

Thats an awesome place for beamshots btw.. now that I look at anything else than the trees (those got me..) I notice how easy you can see the difference between CW and NW.

Dont worry, you are a good photographer boy. Silly

Thanks for the beamshots especially of the triple XM-L lights.  I am trying to figure which one I need and it looks to me that the Dry has a small lead in terms of brightness.

Beautiful pics! The DRY is still the true king! Even the 5 & 7 xm-l lights pale in comparison.  Davie

Mouseover for the STL-V6. Mouseout for TK41.

The V6 looks like it can throw farther than the TK41, but with a smaller hot spot.

Thanks for doing this mouseover! And yes, the V6 throws better.
