    Default Quick outdoor beamshots v1 (24 lights: V60C, TN10/11, G10v2, XT20, TK21, T20C, etc.)

    Hi all, weather and work load hasn't been cooperating so I haven't been able to get to the underpass for the definitive comparo throw/bounce shots I wanted but here are some quick ones to give you an idea of the relative brightness and beam profile of some newer lights as well as some oldies but goodies.

    Distance to the white wall is 21.3 ft (6.5m) and to the steps (at the forefront of the bottom of the pic is 12ft). I tried to aim the hotspot at the top of the wood plank but as you can see it wasn't always perfectly aimed in the same spot. This goes to show how tricky taking these shots can be since it isn't until the shutter speed is stepped down that you can clearly see the hotspot. This was especially true with lights using TIR's. I'll account for the aim and WB in my next set of outdoor shots.

    All shots on Canon S3 IS, ISO 80 @ f2.7 using Daylight WB so for certain lights the tint may be a bit off. Again the goal here was not tint accuracy but rather brightness/beam profile.

    For the 3 shots of each light the shutter speeds were: left = 1/4" | center = 1/20" | right = 1/80" (click on pics to load full size).

    Any questions just ask.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    Nice beamshots, they show just how intense the hotspot is on some of these lights.

    Nice set! Thanks.

    I just got my two small zebralights (h31fw and sc31w- quite happy with both), and am looking for a complementary larger light. This is certainly helpful.

    Very nicely done!

    Great consistency. The faster shutter speeds give a great view into the throwing potential of each light and the slower shutter speeds show the overall beam profile. The included spreadsheet is awesome as well as it gives all the metrics in a clear concise format. There is a lot of work in this post. Thanks for doing it.

    Great beamshots. Thanks for your time & effort. TurboBB!

    All beamshots & light information table are very informative and give much more things than anticipated.
