    Thank you. Yes, C2-CJ like the others that have been posted here. A close up:

    Oh, I didn't realize it was a C2-CJ, very nice! It looked like something else from the farther shot you had. I remember someone here had a green Z2 and that's what it reminded me of.

    I'm repeatedly tempted to do a collection photo, but it's getting increasingly difficult

    Having said that...let's see some updated photos, people!

    Tempest,
    With that idea in mind, what method have you found to be most photographic?

    For taking pictures of my collection? Well these days it usually involves cramming them all into the smallest space possible, in a very unattractive presentation, in order to get them all in frame

    For example, this was my last attempt:



    ...and I imagine there's one or two dozen more now.

    Yes, that's what meant. The photography experts here will certainly be able to guide us....I hope. You may have exceeded the world limit on collectible Surefire lights though. Nice, very nice.

    LOL Tempest, what you need is a bigger house and an ultra-wide-angle lens to get all those in shot!

    Tempest, what is etched on the 6P at the bottom? Looks like a 6P-GM.

    I can't quite remember, now that you mention it I don't have it to hand to check.

    Here's a photo of some of my engraved 6Ps, but you still can't make it out very well:

    hmm interesting. Can someone help clarify/identify this tailcap?





    That is the same tailcap on the DARPA DEF3 light. If you notice, the channel (right in front of the switchm toward the pocket clip) is shallower than a std kroma tailcap. If you look at the very end of the tailcap, the machining is different. The edge of the tailcap (at the switch end) is rounded with a larger radius than the std kroma tailcap.

    This tailcap is certainly NOT a U2 tailcap clicky. Perhaps it is the early PKEF Turbo Kroma clicky? My PKEF does NOT have that. However mine is not a clicky.

    It is a proto-type two-stage clickie TailCap, unseen by the public except on a very few PKEF lights.
    The PKEF were leftover DEF components and this was one of the concepts SureFire field-tested at that time.

    I personally don't get on with it very well - it isn't exactly KISS and I prefer the standard momentary two-stage push button pressure switch without any latching mechanism for constant-on.

    Ok I thought so, but just wanted to make sure. I prefer clickies. my PKEF and std Kroma LOTC are a little stiff to operate with one hand. I would love a 2 stage clicky. wanna trade? haha

    No can do I'm afraid. IMHO you're not missing out on much but then I'm not known for being a fan of clickie switches so I have much bias!!

    I just purchased this pelican case to store my collection and find it rather convenient. I thought I'd share a photo or two.

    Now that was really nice!! Using a laptop case seems to be the trick.


    And I really like your L4, it has such distinct colour differences on tke KL4. Very nice!



    ..and you always manage to snap such great pics...

    Perfect case for the job-great idea. Did you "pick and pluck" or have to cut any foam?

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    The case is Pelicans newest laptop case which was designed for 15" laptops. Its interior is only about 2inches thick/deep, which is perfect for smaller E-series lights. (Yeah, as you noticed, I'm a fan of the E-series ). I tried to diversify a little with my L1 and A2, and the space that I left at the bottom of the case should fit the K2 Kroma perfectly, which is on my wishlist next.

    The case comes with your choice of "Pick 'N' Pluck" foam or a "Computer Case Liner". The foam was very easy to deal with. No cutting required for me. Two squares was the perfect width for my lights, then I just varied the length. And one square between lights worked well.

    For you guys with the larger lights, Pelican has the 1470/1490/1495 briefcase style cases which are considerably deeper. Then again, a lot of you guys would need multiple cases judging by the size of your collections.

    You will love the kroma. I didnt think too much of it at first until I played with one in my hands. Now I have one and it is my new personal EDC. I used to EDC my G2Z then it switched to my C2-ST now it is the Kroma.

    I agree the Kroma is a great light. I carried it for a while...until...well lets just say that I decided to let someone else enjoy it as well.

    Yes, and that would be ME!!! Thanks Ed!!!

    Is your Aviator head black? or is that due to the lighting and camera?
