LEDNinja,

Appreciate the replies. So for a pocket light, I'm still not that outdated. It is great to see these LEDs be able to go into what used to be incan and HID territory. I'm guessing tint still plays a role in how they make things "pop" or contrast outdoors though?

About 2 years ago Dereelight made a warm (actually a neutral 4250°K LED) light which works better on vegetation.
Since then many manufacturers have also made warm (neutral 4250°K) alongside the normal cool white. Usually a W at the end of the model # indicates the warm/neutral version.

Then 4sevens made a limited run true warm 2700°K Quarks, Minis and Preons.
He also made another limited run of neutral 4500°K Quarks, Minis and Preons.
Here is a comparison review of the 3 tints.

No outdoor beamshots here but there are plenty in other reviews. Search.

Note the warm/neutral tints are available in the powerful MC-E and SST-50 lights as well.
