Most TIR lights are arranged in multiple optic arrays, but I guess you mean huge optic arrays. The largest I know of off the top of my head is the D4S. Weight quickly becomes an issue when you start packing so many large ones together.

One cool light with two huge reflectors in an array is the Maxtoch Owl Eyes W2. Seeing that thing with two SBT90.2s would be cool.
Yes, I meant the same type of TIR optic that exists in the MK37, MC13, CatapultMini, E10 etc. The new age giant optics lol.

In other words can there be a multi-well TIR in the style of say, the TN40/GT94? Instead of reflectors, just 3, 4, or 5 giant overlapping optics?

And what happens if you make the optic even bigger than the MK37, say, 100mm or 120mm? Diminishing returns? Exact same effect?

I don't have many people to talk cameras with so I gotta take my opportunity when given. ha
I used to heavily follow the industry and was all about the latest and greatest gear.... then in '16 or '17 we showed up to a family photo shoot where the photographer pulled out something like an old school Nikon 300 or 400. The photos turned out some of the best colors I've seen of us. I don't know the lens and etc but since then I've had a different mindset on gear.

Vinh have you looked at the new Nichia B35AM? Convoy is selling the 4500k 9080 version on his Ali page. It is basically 4xE21A packed together so it is ultra high cri and likely good tint.

Yes. Log in to the Administrator Control Panel, click the thread, then slide the Sticky Topic slider to the desired position. This works great if you have ACP access on the official forum for the worlds best paid anti virus product. I don't know if this works on this forum, but it's worth a try.

Just found out Clemence is selling a variety of these Nichia B35 9080 and he has killer high performance mcpcb (16mm and 20mm) for these. They come in 6v or 12v. Vinh can you mod some Olight Perun, Baton, and Warrior Mini with these? Would be so nice to use these ultra high CRI emitters with the ultra high efficiency Olight drivers. I would definitely buy some.

I think the majority of us would want the R9080 variants of the B35AM in CCTs anywhere from 4000k to 5000k.

That would be SM403, SM453, SM503, all in R9080.

Looks like the eurekatronix site only has them in 12v.

take a dremel and bur and carve out a notch just below the bezel so you can get a lever tool in there and pop off the bezel.It does mar the light but if you are careful you can make it look good.

Oof, that looks brutal. If Zebralights aren't realistic I'd definitely take one in a copper KR1.

I thought with your engraving skills you could make it look good...
