Thread: SUPERPOWER Beamshots....

  1. #1

    Default SUPERPOWER Beamshots....(moonshot added)

    Finally acquired a SuperPower ( Thanks to a great forum member) and could not wait to take it out for a spin......even if their was a full moon. These shots were taken with an iPhone 5 so excuse the poor quality. Also I was right behind the light and kind of in a hurry. I'll be taking more in the coming weeks as time permits!

    I have no idea of the distances...all I know is it throws like a mutha! My only regret is I did not take shots with my LX70 to compare these too.

    Just FYI ...had the SuperPower mounted on my hiking staff. And, like it was stated in a previous thread, turn the room light down and expand the pics to see the throw better.

    Not sure if their was booze or drugs involved but......my Lemax's are multiplying! Started with the SuperPower ....and we all know that is just for reaching way out there and toasting the competition when needed. However for everyday use the 35/50 watt LX50II did seem the logical choice which Gregg and Chartmarker realized early on. I also added a red filter and a diffusor, both of which work fantastic. Here is a comparison pic thought you might enjoy.

    And, at the HID/Shootout ....(Location and time to be determned)....... we will have the ever elusive and never seen before "LEMAX LIGHT CANNON.".......

    Well Sandy, as you said," Not sure if there was booze or drugs involved"---and I presume you were referring to the LEMAXES--but this last photo is a rather racy photographic record that SOMETHING did happen!!! Oooo La, la!! Hope ya don't get banned for this kind of "stuff"!! This is a "G" site as I've always been aware... Any other "pics" on the way so we can stay on this thread??!!!

    With this new edition there HAS to be a shootout this Summer!! I was suggesting that again to scout24 on the other thread. I'm gonna get an additional tripod or two and, we'll have a score of LEMAXES, a BarnBurner, A Maxabeam, Polarions, and that mystery light I've spoken about that I have referenced on occasion..."only "The Shadow Knows".... Git yer bail money out, I suspect otherwise we might find ourselves in the Hoosegow overnight! Oh yeah, you'll have to bring the Sprint---or your new Tesla 18-wheeler to haul all the "stuff" around!!

    My 2 cents......The air will be cleaner and crisper in the Fall.........enabling longer and better beamshots!

    Those are awesome, Sandy! I've had my 35/50 out cloud bouncing with all the weather we have had, but nothing like the focus on that Super!!!

    Took my SuperPower on a trip up north. Weather was cloudy but I managed to get a few shots. Have no idea on distance and they were shot with an iPhone but the light always amazes me. Light is shining at the rock face up top.

    Very cool!! Great shot 👍🏼. Must be a heck of a light to tote around with that huge head. Thatís never really stopped a true flashaholic though 😁

    Nothing like asking your wife to help you lug gear 1/2 mile down to a riverbed in bear country! To take beamshots!! She's a keeper.

    Just think how the moon would "reflect" if he had the hotspot right on it, he was a tad high on both photos.

    We are getting closer for those option purchases a few were waiting on, should be giving notice in the next couple of weeks.
