Thread: XeVision ULTRA 85 .... Beamshots

  1. #1

    Default XeVision ULTRA 85 .... Beamshots

    Here are the 1st known beam shots of the new ULTRA 85.. ( I hope ) Freezing cold tonight so I did not make it to the powerlines, just set up in the back field.

    Amazing light and I feel fortunate to have one of the 10 made. No camera, just an iPhone 8....best I could do.

    Yes, I know I lack on specs. Not a golfer so I don't own a rangefinder and I don't do that google stuff. However, it is across a 30 acre parcel...that tree is about 2800 ft away from where I was set up. Really was not a distance shot by any means. When I have some time I'll be taking some shots at the power lines nearby. Hopefully get some known distances then. Plus, it was freakin cold out!!


    NOTE: RASHER or anyone else...feel free to post your beamshots in this thread! Someone has to have a decent camera out there!

    Thanks for the comments gents!

    Thanks for the mention - while I've got some excellent cameras, my skills with them are limited to astrophotography and microscopy - I don't have the skills (nor time/patience I suppose) to produce beamshots of the caliber flashaholics would want.

    If I keep it, I'll be loaning it to a buddy that's a professional photographer that does a lot of night work in remote areas - he expressed an interest in using some of my throwers - so if that happens, I'll share his work gladly.

    Thanks again for the mention!

    Stock Lemax is claimed ~4.5 Mcd at ~7500 lumens. These are claimed ~9500 lumens. Somewhere in the 4.7-5 Mcd range I'd venture, or a ~couple of hundred meters more "throw" over the claimed 4250m of the stock light.

    It's big, it's bright, it throws a spot that's usable with or without optics. Good enough for me.

    Those who were waiting for options that you wanted in addition to your XeVision or Lemax Lights, please indicate your current needs / desires here.
    Since its been a few months your desires may have changed, Karl wanted more batteries some others wanted a superpower head and a tethered power adapter.
    I could look at my old notes but this is easier and we have at least a few weeks to pull this together and nail down pricing once I have my big order in hand.

    I think "Toolboy" is maybe the only one left wanting some "add-ons" as he put it.
    We have 2 to maybe 4 weeks for anyone else looking to buy additional items for their existing XeRay or Lemax lights.
    Also any complete 35/50 or 50/70 light buyers could also be tacked onto this offer.

    I might have interest in the external adaptor as well ...depending on the price of all these "goodies" Dan...

    Was thinking about the 10" extension with the external switch but, I can't get both. I think the 12Vot would serve me better in a vehicle.

    May tack on a filter for my LX50...still thinking.

    You want to power the light from the cig lighter, without using your battery ?
    I believe that's the interest for all 3 of you possibly and not the car adapter battery charger.
    That's easily done instead with a multi purpose inverter 12VDC to 110 AC and has many uses, plug your AC charger into that instead.

    These are the two cables I was referring to - just to be clear. If I had to choose one now I'd take the External adaptor for car with cig plug. 12Volt .

    The 1st one separates the light and battery but has an external switch. Handy for tripod work or vehicle mount.

    There is a third cable which attaches the battery to the cig adaptor but will NOT power the Lemax directly from the cig output. I have this one for that specific purpose--charging from within the car. That charging can also be accomplished via the setup Dan has suggested---using an inverter connected to the cig outlet and then, connected to the regular Lemax AC charger, finally to the battery. This last setup will NOT power the Lemax directly from the cig outlet.

    Yes, I want the 12v cigarette adapter that will power the light without a battery. It should be the bottom item pictured with male threads in sledhead's photos above.

    Xevision, If you could also post or pm me what a new battery and a battery cap would run when you find out. I only intend to have one battery and get it rebuilt by someone (anyone know anybody that could or would do that), but if the battery cost isn't too crazy I may pop for another battery. Of course the cost of everything with this light is relative as it is so over the top in build quality and performance, not many options (competitors) to compare it with.

    Waiting for the PO I have worked on for 2+ years to be in hand. Should be this week or next week the latest.
    I don't want to commit to firm prices until I have that. No back pedaling from me.

    I was told by Sledhead to be patient but I told him "patience my A__, I wanna kill something".... A takeoff from the two Vultures sitting in a tree in the desert waiting for something to die.

    Great news! Thanks Dan!
