    Well, well, a brand new lounge for 2018!
    I just received a couple of 2017 lights back from Vinh. I sent them to get "modernized" with D4 ramping UI, just in time for the new year.
    They are my X45vn and TN40vn heat monsters.
    The ramping UI gives me infinite control of the balance between power & heat. The max power is the same, but this upgrades the usefulness of these super lights. I love the results! Thanks Vinh!

    Thinking Re: The Lounge 2018

    Damn Alex!!

    Have you tried measuring the throw of all three together???


    and it looks like the tn42vn90 has a muuch wider spill profile than the GT. For some reason, I was under the impression that the GT had a wider beam profile than the tn42 (I can't recall why I thought that tho...)


    ---edit---- ok scratch that. I'm an idiot.

    Exact same camera setting on both shots. I measured the tn42vn90 at 837kcd which is less then what vinh measured surprisingly. I measured 1.2m CD on the GT.

    Yes, and it is fantastic!
    No matter how big you think it is, it is bigger! LOL
    But, oh my! It can reach and has a big hot spot.

    distance you measured from ?

    Btw where do I sign up for potentially getting on the list for the pass around for the TN42vn90? I'd make a video of the light with my dslr.
