So I decided to some beam comparison on some lights that I have. Mostly the bigger output 1000 lumens +
Recently I became a small distributor to Lumintop Lights in Australia and wanted to compare them to other brands in terms of output, beam, tint, etc.
This should also help anyone that is looking to buy any of these lights and would like a quick comparison.
All shots taken in manual mode. Exposure: 2s, F4, Iso 320, Focal length 35mm
Distance is 42m from flashlight to trees.
If someone could do a GIF of all of the shots, it would be welcome
thanks. I hope this helps someone.
Yes the DT70 is a beast. It lights up with a nice throw but enough flood to illuminate things around. Much more than what I was expecting it to be. Has a really nice machining finish and matte black anodising. This is the light I would take to impress anyone/light up a bit area. It does get hot! In 2 mins it hits 57degrees C.
See a video I did of the heat produced.
Nice beamshots :+1:
i am thinking of getting DT70. Do you have any trouble with it? i have read people reporting troubles with the light from one of the emitter died to DOA. I do have DN70 and happy with it.
I see no other choice but to think that Imalent went through several iterations of their lights to fix the issues. The last couple of months I don’t read about issues at all. Man I hope QC has improved a lot, and their new DX80 will not suffer from poor quality…
Hard to answer. But if I had to pick only one…Dt70
if I can pick two. Then DT70 and the BK-FA09S. As they are the two opposites and best performer in each of their design. One a flood (with good throw) and the other a super thrower.
But I must add that the SD26 is really nice. Well designed, fits great in the hamds and the hot spot is one of the best I’ve seen. You get a very perfect circle with defining edges and no artifacts at all. Also more practical to day to day use.
