    Default LED lights in the last INDIANA JONES ??!! :))

    Last week I saw the last INDIANA JONES with INDY oldie, but still goldie.
    I am guessing they messed up with the flashlights because , considering the shape of the beam, the tint - a white one - and the hotspot I do believe they have used LED emitters in old design bodies. That's my impression.

    if the beam is square then a TIR optic is used
    If the beam has a irregular hotspot and theres rings all over the place then a smooth reflector is used
    If the beam is a bright dot and very dim corona then its using a long reflector

    can you describe this shape of the beam?

    The best shot of the stake that also showed the way the LEDs looked.


    The cute Nicole DeBoer (as Dr. Alison Porter) and Dr. Carson Beckett with two lamp flashlights on table. Only the chem and stake lights worked outside in the fog.

    The shape of the beam was round and I do not think they used SMO reflectors in their lights as the beam was very smooth - OP characteristic - Also the hotspot was quite big if I remember well. There are 2 weeks since I have seen the movie.
    But man, I guess they really messed up .
    50 years ago, was there any chance for the them to get white light from flashlights , I am wondering ? Hmm, maybe they found some strange artifacts during that Roswell incident

    Default Stargate Atlantis Whispers stick light/lantern?

    To all the Stargate Atlantis fans, does anyone know what kind of stick light/lantern everyone is using after the flashlights stop working in the latest episode "Whispers"? Here's an example of the lights:

    I noticed it too, but didn't really look too deep into it though. There was a pretty good close-up at one point. If I remember I'll see if I can get a pic of it. It looked like a couple of rows of 5mm led's, whatever it was.
    Due to my current schedule being pretty darn hectic, I will not be accepting new modding projects until things settle down.

    I'm merging this with Flashlights in TV shows and movies (Part 3).
    Resistance is futile...

    Look up at post #96 now that DM51 merged with this thread.

    I do not remember seeing these stake lights used in any Stargate series or movie.

    I meant I did not remember seeing the stake lights before the recent Atlantis episode. A fast forward through S04 E06 did not seem to reveal any of the stake lights and "Whispers" is actually the last week S05 E07 episode and not S04 E06.

    These stake lights probably made it a bit harder to see in the fog and did not really illuminate anything that was not up close while inside as they seemed more useful for location and to be seen.

    i think the primary reason was for location so u knew to shoot anything that didn't have the light.

    Ok I've just been wondering what kind of lights the exterminators use in the Discovery Channel show Verminators. All that I could tell is they were short barreled and bright incans. You'd think they'd use an led since they actually use it for work and the battery cost must be high since they're always using it. I doubt they're using rechargeables.

    I think I spotted an E1B being used on the new Fox series "Fringe".

    Can anyone identify the light in the Journey to the Center of the Earth trailer (here)? The one that is thrown up when they fall through the crust. It was bugging me I couldn't figure it out...

    It looks like a Surefire C3.

    I just watched "Crazy Eights." Its a ghost slasher movie set in an abandoned hospital. Gee thats original. One of the characters had 2 M6s with beam shapers in his car's emergancy kit. Talk about being prepared!

    That's a C3 without doubt. Noticed it was CGI at some points.

    I was watching Ghost Hunters International last week and noticed one of the team members was using a Streamlight Super Tac.

    My wife gets rather annoyed when I rewind the PVR in the middle of a show to check out the flashlights

    Selma Blair's Character, Liz Sherman, was carrying a M6 Guardian when they investigated the crime scene/murder scene of the auction house. I think one of the BPRD no-name Agents had a M3 but I couldnt get a good look at it.
    I concur, you are 100% correct... and yes it was a SF M3.

    Just watched House of the Dead and Alone in the Dark.

    You know, for such shitty movies that obviously spared expense on writing, acting and direction, they definitely spent the money on several Surefire M6s (and possible M4s) used throughout the movie!

    OT, but after falling that far, hitting that water would've been like hitting concrete and then obviously they're all dead.

    But the C3 would've probably survived!

    Movies based on video games are usually crap-tacular. Even worse when it's vice-versa. (Although the film "Resident Evil" was better than decent).

    Default Surefire M6 spotted on Eureka?

    Eureka, episode 307, Here Come the Suns, about 27 minutes in. Carter, Allison and Zane explore an abandoned underground facility, using what looks like two Surefire M6 flashlights, which are laughably huge in comparison to the incredibliy sophisticated, cell phone sized device they use next. I guess even in Eureka they can't manufacture a torch that's small and powerful with long runtime.

    Eureka could build the Ultimate flashlight. The problem is Eureka doesn't have a Flashaholic type geek. Any volunteers to move to Eureka?
