    Nice choice of F/stop!

    Very impressive
    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    Sweeeeeet!

    Barry, I remember when I had more Ti lights than you did... by a long shot! But my entire collection could probably fit in half of that photo! So the question is - what's next??!!?

    Mmmm... I love me some TB Sweetness.

    The depth of field (area that's in focus) in this photo would have been unchanged if he'd have shot it at f/10 or so, and then he could have either had a shorter exposure (less camera movement, more clear - although methinks Barry used a tripod on this?), or a lower ISO (less noise - although the D300 has pretty good noise reduction). So I'd say BAD choice of f/stop.

    Another awesome one bf1.

    TB's lights come in the earlier "spiral finish" and the later "fine-brushed" finish eras.

    That is a beautiful example of the "spiral finish" on a nice avant-garde design.

    EDIT: For some reason (problems with the server perhaps?) the photo no longer shows up here so I added it to post #21 instead.

    I'm too lazy to take another picture at the moment Toby, but I may have a go in a week or two.

    The top 2 lights have darkzero bi-flupic SSC-P7 L.Es and are very bright.

    The other 3 are all equipped with SSC-P4 L.Es.

    I will be replacing the SSC-P7 L.E in the 38mm head for a SST-50 bi-flupic L.E from darkzero and putting the SSC-P7 in another light.

    Its great that its so effortless to upgrade these beauties.

    The King of Ti-Land? AAHAHA, hahaha, hah...eheh...hmm.

    That collection is amazing. Just think, someday in the far distant future, someone will dig those things out of the ground and wonder what ancient artisan spent such time and effort on those details, and what their significance was in the society of the time.

    Yes and all they'll have to do is to swap out the led on the L.E for instant illumination.
