Took some beamshots to see how the new king compares to some of my other lights.
All photos taken with 70mm, 1.3s, f/8, ISO400, WB 4800K.
Distance to the building is about 90m (= 295feet), as seen in this snip from Google Earth:
Let's start with some well known references.
And then to NW lights.
Shadow TC6 NW:
Old-Lumens Special SST-90:
DRY NW High:
DRY NW Turbo:
SKYRAY King NW High:
SKYRAY King Low:
And finally some mouseovers.
DRY vs. SKYRAY (Mouse over for SKYRAY)
KD C8 vs. Shadow TC6: (Mouse over for Shadow TC6)
Solarforce MPP-2 vs MPP-1 (Mouse over for MPP-1)
MPP-2 vs. KD C8 (mouse over for KD C8)
+ bonus photo, "wannabe art", Snowy River lit by MPP-1:
That's all for now. Hope you enjoyed watching these. :)
I think I like the photo the best. That's really cool! Definitely NOT "wannabe art"
Thanks for all the reference shots!
Awesome shots! Thx for sharing.
_the_ is very modest.
Go check out his galleries "out there on the 'net" and you'll see this little river really is just his regular night out with a digital photo camera. ;)
Very nice beamshots and photo. :)
yeah, definitely not wannabe. in fact, I'd love to use that as a background if you'd post a link to a high res version?
Do you have shots of the SST-90 on low and hi? Just curious to see the difference. Not very bright because of the messed up reflector.
Love that river shot, really nice!!!
Makes me re-think about that Skyray King...
Yeah, it appears to be brighter than the Dry. I may have to get one. Nice shots!
Are you a photographer?
The Shadow impresses me but SkyRay is the final winner.
Just pulled to trigger for SkyRay!
Thanks for sharing. I really like the "wannabe art".
Size wise which is wider in diameter dry or skyray? Nice art shots btw:)
x2. I'd love to see a comparison side by side photo of the dry and king for size reference :) Thanks for the already amazing reference photos you've provided! Beautiful work and a huge help to many of us here!
About how many lumens is the King on low? And is the trigger switch mechanism user-friendly?
A pictures worth a thousand words. Thanks.
Thank you all for the compliments! I'm not a "real" photographer, it's just my hobby (which actually did lead me to the world of flashlights.. ;))
dthrckt: Sure. I just need to re-edit the photo for a high res version. What resolution do you want?
I will try to answer all questions and post a side-by-side photo of King and DRY later today (= after work hours). Please wait patiently..
I love your bonus photo... its surreal. Makes me want to go out and attempt taking night outdoor pictures, with illumination from just flashlights.
yeah I agree. Looks like a professional took that picture :)
I'm using it for my desktop wallpaper on my Mac and my PC's. Looks awesome!!
