I believe that (aside from the floody 'F' & Flood '604' models)
there are four current (MkIV) 'spot' models - all with 12º spot / 80º spill
Hey, guys, I'm just curious which one from the H604 need to get.
It looks like you want pure flood with no reach. Maybe the frosted lens of the H600Fc Mk IV at 4000 High CRI would get you where you want to be. Any reason why you specifically want to choose from the 604's only?
No specifically reason, I'm new with all the info here, I think they are the latest models, but maybe i'mJu wrong. Need something around 1000+ lumens for 2-3h. On all 604's it says '120 degree flood', so I think it's like on the picture.
Looks like you know what you want the 604 is what I picked, too, because 120 degree spill was better than the 90 degree flood of the 600 for my application. I figured I could put some DC Fix-It on the lens of the 604 if I wanted full frosted lens. I have a Sc600w MKIV if I need to get some lumens down range, so it and the 604 are a marriage made in heaven.
Good luck on your decision, and let us know what you end up choosing!
I often use the headlamp for very upclose work, and I don't want any hotspot at all, so the frosted lens helps to further eliminate that for me. This is one of the reasons my Nitecore D10's with the water bottle caps on the ends were so beloved. I just got tired of putting metal between my teeth.
Hmm... never would have considered this. Is the light very diffused? What about heat build-up? Would it melt it?Ahh I see, we're talking very up close. I'm a bit surprised that you can distinguish the hot spot.
If you ever get sick of removing and reapplying the DC-Fix, I highly recommend this:
Any H600c or H600d owners out there that can share info on beam and tint or beamshots? Very curious how it compares to their lightly frosted brothers.
Thanks for chiming in and too bad you don't like it. If you want more throw, the h600w xhp35 is probably a better option. Is there alot if variation in tint across the beam of the h600c?
