Re: Outdoor/Backyard Beamshot Thread (Review Consolidation: 37 lights) ..run and hide

On the site, why are some beamshots taken at different ISO's and shutter speeds?

you mean the indoor comparison beamshots?
those shots are for comparison of total output and beam profile (spot,spill-ish) I didn't really have to include shutter speed, actually.

Hi Ti²C,
hmm.. perhaps, I'm looking at the ti quark (.99A), and the thrunite dropin (1A):

The thrunite dropin throws better.. perhaps it is focusing too much on throw? Close range shots show that the performance appears to be about right.

Hi Craig - love all these beamshots :candle: Wondering about the Malkoff. If that the basic M60 (no flood, no low)? I am always impressed by the throw of some of these lights, but even more so when one is able to turn night into day with flood/diffuser. Do you have any shots of a Malkoff flood?

Thanks for all your work on these lovecpf

hey blinkjr -- that's the standard malkoff M60.

sorry, I don't have the flood version!

I've been rather busy recently and have been unable to add to the thread, nor work on the comparison page.

Does the Liteflux LF2XT come with a XPG from the factory (If so, where can I get one) or is it modded? Thanks.

Hi redliner, it is modded by one of the dealers here, kuku427.

Check the marketplace for them. I believe he's selling a package deal for the modded light w/ sapphire glass for either 80.. Heck of a deal considering he does the modding by hand(well done, too. My original lf2xt was actually off center,.. Now it's perfect as far as I can see), the light retails for 60, and led I would guess costs 5, and the sapphire glass retails for quite a bit, too.

thanks for the job, it looks like there is a neat improvement between the first generation eagletacs and the MKII (little less throw, but larger spot and more spill)

Craig,

Is it just me or is the spill beam of the Eagletac P20A2 MKII narrower than that of the older P20A2? The MKII shows up in the frame but the other doesn't, so the locations of the lights may be the reason perhaps?

Did you notice any holes in the middle of the hotspot that some people see in their lights with the smooth reflector?

Thanks.
