So pulling the trigger on the NLT 325 (over the SDSR50). Had a scare last night when I was out with the Barrel Co. and I really needed the throw. Saphire glass and 18650 compartment.
NLT is perfect for my dog walking as the beam travels nicely and that LED is soft on the eyes early in the am. When I am working with electrical colored wires in a car or electric box I need high CRI to distinguish between brown, red, green, and black.The NLT is what I'd buy today if I were buying one.
I don't get caught up in high CRI because I can shine 10 different HCRI emitters on a color chart and get 10 different color renderings.
No. Kind of like Dodge and Chevy. They're similar, but each has their loyal followers. Personally, I prefer the Nichia 219B series emitters. I have both the NB45 and NB35.Is SDV30 the same as “SW30”?
With both at 3000K and similar CRI, how different is the output (beside the lumen difference)?No. Kind of like Dodge and Chevy. They're similar, but each has their loyal followers. Personally, I prefer the Nichia 219B series emitters. I have both the NB45 and NB35.
SW30 = NB30 = Nichia 219B at 3000K and 95 HICRI.
SDV30 = Samsung LH351D at 3000K and 90 HICRI.
It’s not really that simple. CRI is pretty complex, if you what you really want is the most accurate, then you want 219b. In short, reds should render more accurately with 219b over the LH351D.
