    Thank you!
    It looks like I have exactly 219A.




    I did a couple more comparative photos with Elzetta Alpha and SF E1L.
    With sunlight these are weak regimes - 7, 5 and 6.44 lm,
    in the corridor the maximum - 315, 140 and 90 lm,
    Here the colors are more like what I see in reality,
    apparently the camera works better when many light sources.



    The rest of the photos I put here, so as not to clutter up the space

    Heads UP!

    The few remaining 3000k and 4000k group buy 219c hiCRI lights are now open to anyone to purchase on the HDS Custom Build web page.
    I posted this as well on some other flashlight pages... so if you want one, you may want to order quickly.

    Thanks for the pics and vid Hogo, looks amazing...................WOW!

    219a, looks very much like the LED i have in my 1st vinh light the m20vn(single mode). Now i always wondered if 219a or 219b, iirc it was around 2013(back end of maybe) when i got it. Either way its a nice beam, love it and in work as one of my lights.

    I purchased a 140 before they were no more, I think it was a close out sale. It has a blue sticker but when I asked Henry what emitter it was I was told Nichia 219B 4500K. Did Henry accidentally say 219B instead of A?

    Hogo, could you post a short clip (on the HDS YT page) showing the bicycle pulsing strobe?

    Give me a day or two. I'm playing catch up in the shop.

    NOTE:

    I just got off the phone with Henry, and currently there is only 1 3000k left and only a couple 4000k. People have been shopping!

    What would be a distinctly different high CRI 93+ Led emitter from the HDS 219b 4000k? (I have two of those).

    Am wondering if the EU also placed extra taxes on imported US made flashlights. Someone knows?

    Less pink (in my opinion). A little better efficiency as well (not my opinion as they have tested better on the calibrator). Will appear "whiter" next to it. At least, that was my observations.

    Which led emitter are you recommending? I definitely want 93+ CRI but with a brightness not hard on the eyes at 4am, my primary time of use, and distinctly different from my two HDS 219b 4000k. Was thinking either 219c 3000k or 219c 5000k or 219b 4500k with software version 2.18 or a different recommended led emitter option.

    Availability aside, it sounds like 3000K is your best fit while the 219B 4500K (R9080) is going to give the best CRI hands down.
    Another option is the 219C 3500K, to me it has the closest light match to an incan and seems to be a nice balance for general use and also easy on the eyes.

    Just to confirm, I have the standard 200 HCRI 4000K old 219B and the 3500K 219C is noticeably different.

    This post has been the devil to me all day. After much trepidation, I've decided that the 3000K will be too warm and the 4000K will be too similar to my HiCRI 219b in 4000K. I really want another HDS, but I'm holding out for another flavor.

    @Hogo, great pics and narratives
    I haven't watched the vids yet, but will get to them

    @F89, are you located in the US or are you over one of the ponds?

    @ModernFlame, if you don't think anything will fit between the 4000k 219b and 5700k 219c; you could always go with the cool white 250/325....or wait to see what will come in the near future
