Wasn't there a larger head that sold with these at one time? Could make a thrower out of it.
The SST-50 version that Lighthound.com has now is brighter than the SST-90 that they used to sell, I have both versions. I'm assuming because the new SST-50 version that they are selling uses a 4.2A driver instead of the 2.8A that the SST-90 uses. It could also be the color temp of the LED but the SST-50 is noticeably brighter than the SST-90 that I have.
No disrespect meant but I would imagine it could be easy to make an error in judgment between the SST-50 & SST-90 since the "50" projects a much tighter hot spot. Having compared the 47's S12 to the X7 sometimes leaves one with the impression that the X7 is brighter since the eye naturally focuses on the hotspot and ignores the massive amount of spill from the S12. It's only when you perform a ceiling bounce test and the S12 nearly doubles the lux number of the X7 on the light meter that one realizes what's happening there. Obviously the XM-L is not an SST-50 but the principle and effect are similar. 730L compared to 525L is fairly decisive and I suspect that MKN is very familiar with the differences. Perhaps you could do a light meter test for us if you have access to one.
but min order =10:mecry:... we need this in dx or cpf marketplace
I want buy only one or two, not 10!!!!!!!!
