Since there is a new version of the wildy popular C01 coming out in a non potted format this may be a good place to talk about it instead of the potted version thread.
What yall think?

Three on the way; C01R SST-20 Deep Red, C01 3400k ("Sofia" replaces earlier used Yuji) and the C01S SST-20 4000k NW

All just shipped from the Sofirn Store in the land of C19

My first order, last year, shipped thru Ali for C01 Yuji, emitter arrived DOA

Hopefully at least one out of this order functions 🙏🤞🤙

Should be easy to pot yourself?

Does anyone here have any experience with the Sophia LEDs these use?

I have dozens of’em from 2300K up to 6000K. All i can say they are amazing! Therefore i ordered 10xC01’s to swap them all. It will be fun for sure.
I think Sophia is the only one having 3mm LED’s in 90CRI.

Although I ordered one in each color (plus a deep red), I have no idea about the “Sophia” emitter...what have I missed here?

Yes, the CRI metrics are basically equal to a Yuji, and the tint is almost as good, but the Sophia is slightly more efficient, and able to be overdriven harder. I've stress tested both a Yuji and a couple samples of the Sophia. CRI was measured by djozz.

Overall, I think it's a great LED, and for $4, this should be a stellar value on a light.

Picked up a few to give out to nieces/nephews with their Christmas presents. Why not?? Plus I was ordering the if25a anyhow.

This is great, however, the title of the thread clearly states 2020, so I'm scratching my head about the prior posts concerning all the older and mostly unavailable versions.

Someone brand new coming into this is surely confused by the time he has gotten to this post.

It's probably just me, again. May be better just to changed the title of the thread to "C01 - All Variations" or something like that, since we can't get a full page into this, with them all being discussed in this thread.

I'd love a 4000ish Kelvin C01 if Sophia make one.

Thanks Everyone for their input on the Sophia LED.

I think Post #16 spells out what is and what was very well. The reason I started this thread was because of all the chatting going on about the 2020 version in the 2018 thread that actually began due to all the chatting about a C01 in the E01 thread.
Now, to my knowledge nobody has received their C01 sophia so of course the discussion is about the what if's and what was. At least for now. Once the pony express has delivered these new versions to a few folks perhaps the focus of conversation will be defined. I mean at least the discussion at this point is largely about a C01, regardless of which version. Some threads would be discussing politics or corn flakes cereal by now.
