Beautiful Saphphire 25 with high cree 3200K 45. Makes a lovely little accent pocket light for macro shots, EDC and key ring.
Can anyone post a comparison photo between the Yuji 3200K, Yuki 5600K, Nichia DS, and Nichia GS? Personally I already know what the DS vs. GS looks like, but it would be nice to see all of the currently-available options lined up next to each other on a white background.
No doubt the Yuji LEDs look way better than the Nichia GS.
New to McGizmos and the forums, sorry if this is in the wrong place:
Do the "new" McGizmo heads work with the older PD designs? For example, if I have a TI-PD, can I swap to the newer, brighter McGizmo LEDs out now but retain the piston drive switch?
You could anodise your own sapphire quickly and easily with a few basic things you may have around the house.
A handful or so (depending on desired colour) of 9v batteries, a plastic container filled with water mixed with bicarb soda, some wires and a chunk of something (piece of metal, old carabiner etc) as a cathode and away you go.
You'll be surprised at the results you can achieve.
So did @theslippyslug (ukmidnight) .... It's really too bad all of the photos from the linked thread have disappearedDon creates the value in the process. The color on the Sapphire done by Don in post 314 is outstanding.
