    Any light that is almost as wide as it is tall means business.
    GOOD TINT!

    Following Acebeam for new lights is one of the things I look forward to add zest, elan, verve and panache to my life. Thanks for posting the reference to the very nice photo.

    How do you know? Do you have a k75 to directly compare to your W30? You can't compare different measurements from different people. Right now the only direct measurement comparison is Acebeam's own set of measurements, of which they have the K75 outthrowing the W30. K75 has much larger lumen output and will definitely have a much more usable beam to see things with, but the tradeoff of course is size.

    Well put. The K75 should be actually useful for say SAR. The W30 and the like are not - all of the LEP (and I have all of the currently generally available makes/models) are lightsaber toys. I like them for that, but they are the last lights I'd take out for any serious long-distance needs.

    Here's an *approximation* of beam sizes of K75 vs W30 under equidistant conditions (the beam profiles will not be the same, hence only approximate but certainly ball-park):




    One will be useful to say spot a person at 500m. The other, not so much...

    Time warp feeling coming on strong.

    Acebeam officially announced this light three days ago, I click on Last Post in this thread, I scroll up, and there, four posts up in this fresh, current thread, is a post that I made in August, which hasn't happened yet.

    Wait....

    August..... 2018.

    Well anyway, I want this light, again.


    ---------------
    I want this light all over, and over again. I want this light all over. Till the light closes in. Till the light closes in.

    Proof that a beamshot tells more than anything... and everyone gets quiet in eager anticipation...

    Has it been edited for marketing purposes though? Or is this straight from the camera roll to the forum... hmm.

    K75 commanding the spotlight in my collection:



    Left to right: K75, TN40, XPro, CatapultV6


    I feel criminal using the K75 in urban environments. Whereas with the T21vn I could point it around discretely without flooding everything around the hotspot, but with the K75 it's like I'm just barfing out light everywhere in the general area I'm pointing. What a monster.

    In these pics I'm pointing at a face of a parking garage 700 meters away. Camera settings were locked at f/2.0, 1/20sec, iso 640 for all 3 shots.

    control:


    T21vn:


    K75:


    The T21vn decently lights up the middle part of the face of the parking garage, and barely the tops of the trees just in front of it.
    The K75 lights up the entirety of the garage's face, wraps around it to the right side, lights up the trees in front of it, lights up the trees in front of those trees, and the spill completely lights up the tree that's about 20 feet in front of me to the left in the foreground.

    What is the run time on the K75 at turbo? My Olight M3XS-UT murders my Malkoff Hound Dog Super, time to murder the Olight.

    So the Usable lumens is 3K 6K is just demo lumens to fool prospective buyers that it will do 6000 lumens for an 1hr 45 minutes. Vendors need to put in parenthesis actual usable runtime in parenthesis.
