Horrible throw and oodles of overly floody lumens. (Based on my experience with a D4s with XPL, and another with SST20 LEDs. The int-outdoor website D4s page gives a good comparison between emitters to give you an idea).
Fireflies E07 gets a lot more lumens from their XP-L LEDs vs their SST emitters. Emisars lumen values on the D4s are very close between the two. SST has far more throw, almost the same lumens and $50 cheaper (in the D18). If the D18 is the same as the D4s I’ll probably go SST for the win.
I kind of like how my SST lights have a warmer tint on low settings, then go bright white at higher settings when I really want to light something up. The added throw and cheaper price are just a bonus.
I ordered a D18 with SST20 3000k and 4000k. I like both Colortemperatures, so i thought this might be really good.
the 4000k has a bit green on low levels? do you think mixing in 3000k will hide that greenish look?
I dont use my lights on very low levels though so i will not suffer to much, but still.
Im not sure which layout Hank chose when installing the emitters, but i would guess its like TK’s layout, for maximum blending.
