Well well well... You can always get yourself a Haiku high CRI just to "complete" your high CRI collection.Great pics Pjandyho but enough is enough. Because of your pics and opinions, I already have the HDS HCRI clickie and an MD2 with the M61HCRI. Just me..but I like the warm tint of the Malkoff. Now off to the store. Just got a craving for Spam. *s*
Like I said, you will only appreciate the output of the Mule when there are no other sources of light polluting the scene. When there are plenty of extraneous light sources around the Mule is almost useless. As a room lighter it is superb.Amazing thread! Thank you so much for taking the time to put this all together. I'm totally impressed with how much the Mule illuminates (the 15 meters ahead of James walking up the trail). I don't think my mule would reach that far . . . need to see what kind of power I have going on there. . . in any case. . . wonderful comparisons!
A diffuser on a Haiku is still quite different from what a Mule can give you. Do what I do, get both! :devil:awesome pics man, im glad i went with the haiku since i can turn it into a mule with my diffuser but you cant turn the mule into a nice thrower like the haiku.
Unfortunately Don is out of the XR-U head for now. He will be producing more later so if you wait I am sure you will be rewarded. Maybe you can fit an XM-L in the XR-U instead?C'mon guys, now you're making me feel bad that I traded away my Nichia 119 LE. :sigh:
Now I kinda want one again. I think that I'd like to put it in a SunDrop XR-U head though, for a smooth diffuse beam with a bit more throw. Then I'd have all three beam patterns, Haiku/Mule/SunDrop for different purposes. The nice thing with the Mule and SD too is that you can mix and match LEs without issue. So I could have an XM-L Mule and Nichia SD one day and an XM-L SD and Nichia Mule the next or whatever.... I don't know if I really need two Mules as I have now, although I do love the Mule. Maybe I can sell the EN Mule and neutral XP-G LE in it and try to put together a Hi CRI SunDrop. It seemed that people thought the original SD with the Nichia 083B emitter was the best version but I would sort of like the XR-U for the higher clearance and ability to use different LEs in there if I want. Does anyone have a SD XR-U and a Nichia 119 emitter they can piece together and let me know how the beam looks with that combo? Thanks in advance if that is a possibility. :thumbsup:
Great thread Andy! I really liked the spider pics. Say, that ladybug is brave! That spider could have a nice snack if he'd just watch his six.
I really, really love my CRI mule & haiku. They really are something else.
I believe you mean in comparison to the high CRI Zebralight SC51c? The warm (or rather neutral white) Zebralight like the H51Fw appears a little more yellowish and the H60w and my H501w appears to have a more rosy tint to it.Just want to echo what others have mentioned, loved your previous night treck thread as well as this one.
Thank you much for the comparison High CRI pics.
How did the Zebralight warms (H60w, H51Fw) fare against the high CRIs?
