    Dark Zero,

    From what I saw on the beam shots, the Carclo 2 Degree seems to have less side spill with the 5 watt V2T than with a normal Q3J BB500? Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is that really the case?


    BTW, great review, very comprehensive coverage and nice layout.

    Thanks fellas! Oops, sorry, where are my manners, & thank you as well Miss Tanya!

    NewBie, sorry, the 2deg is back in Zman's hands. I hope Ian sends me 2deg with the samples for further testing.

    dabiscake, actually if you search you might still be able to find some NX-01s on old stock of Star/Os. I just got a couple more recently. I now have 16 of them.

    Nerd, actually the 2deg didn't really have sidespill as it looks in the pics. It did give off some funny patterns outside the hotspot but I wouldn't really call it sidespill. Kind of hard to explain. IIRC, yes, the LuxI did put out a bit more of the artifacts than the LuxV. I wish I still had it so I could evaluate it more and tell you for sure. I'd also like to figure out what was causing it. Hope I do get one from Ian. If I find anything more on it I will post here.

    Tanya, I'm happy it did and is what I partly intended as well. That is why I included the others along with the Carclos not only for comparison but for useful reference.

    This is a really good comparison. At the request of the author, I'm going to "Sticky" the post, at least for a while. Also changed the main title slightly for clarification and emphasis.

    Nicely done!

    DZ, Ditto the great review. This type of review takes a lot of time, all for the help of others as you already knew the results. I, and I'm sure everyone, appreciates this.

    Thanks,

    Great info. Does '2 Degree' mean the full beam or half beam?

  11. #41

    Default Re: Carclo Precision Optics Review and Others....

    I think it's the full width at half maximum (FWHM). That's the ususal. The full width of the beam, out to where it's half the brightness of the centre.

    Anybody state-side going to carry these? Is just the very narrow lens so expensive, or are all their lenses pretty expensive?

    I know this is an old thread. I thought it was one of the more interesting threads. Has anyone got a chance to really try out the optics? I'd be interested to know how well the optics work.

    I have noticed a bit of artifacts with the 6 deg, but I'm not sure yet whether it me or the lens. I REALLY like the 15 deg one -- it seems to be a nice combo between beam and flood. I have a bowling pin mod (from haveblue) that I'm trying to find time to do. My cornputer is dorked with a bunch of mal-ware and e-mail etc isn't really working right now. I'll try and post when I can get some more time.

    These lenses represent a pretty good value though IMHO and I'm waiting for the larger holder to try the 26.4 mm optics. I also have a plan for the 50 mm 2 degree lens and a Lux V in a 2D mag with a 8XAA adapter, which I will get to after all the Christmas mods!!

    hello guys,

    where can one get a NX-01 or a FRAEN LP optic?
    do they come in different sizes?
    what would be the price range for each?

    thanks,

    joe

    Joe,
    You can buy the Fraen Low Profile optics either from Dat2zip's Sandwich Shoppe or from PhotonFanatic's ++ Luxeon LEDs--optics--reflectors ++ Sale.

    The NX-01 optics have unfortunately been discontinued and are very hard to get now. You might try making a WTB (Wanted To Buy) post in CPF's B/S/T ~ Lights forum.

    Good luck,
    Pat

    pat,

    appreciate the help...indeed it is unfortunate that the NX-01 has been discontinued.
    do you have any suggestions for something that is close to the NX-01 characteristics?
    thanks again.

    You can ask eTendue to send it to you from Korea, if you can't find it. He'll probably use EMS which is about 5 days shipping tracked. Good luck, and I'm not sure if he has stock left, because he was setting up a deal for a european cpf custom light.
