Thread: Samsung 5000k HiCRI good news and bad news

  1. #1

    Default Samsung 5000k HiCRI good news and bad news

    I have good news and bad news.
    First the good news...
    The good news is that the Samsung 5000k HICRI is now done being tested.
    This will be the new HDS Limited HICRI emitter choice.
    In the HDS, they produce 90 CRI on max and go up to 92 CRI as the power is decreased.
    The hotspot is rather large (Hogo's horrible beam shots to come later tomorrow)
    The output is 300 lumens. Yes. Three zero zero. Three hundred lumens.


    The bad news. Some of you are going to be broke.




    OK. You all should know by now I loath beam shots and crossing the beams... AND that I suck on toast at beam shots.
    You can't tell what your eye is going to see tint wise from what the camera (or phone) is set to white balance, your computer monitor, your old decrepit eyes... etc. But, you can see compare the hot spots... sort of.

    Samsung 5000k vs 5400k (only the 5400 will be available in special metal lights. The 5000k will be available in standard lights.)


    Samsung 5400k vs. High Noon


    SS40 vs. Samsung 5000k


    Samsung 5000k vs. NLT


    These were taken on level 5 1 foot from the wall.
    XPG250, 5000k, 5400k, High Noon, SS40, NLT.


    Screen shot data on the special metal run only Samsung 5400.

    The 5700k will only be for special metals... it is really 5400k. The 5000k will be available for standard lights, replacing the SS40

    Very good news indeed! How’s the spot size compared to the 325?

    Damn it. Now I‘m on the fence on jumping on the stainless steel run. That would pair really well with a 5700k Samsung emitter.

    I will wait then.

    Guess this is not a real news.

    Still looking for Surefire G2 in Orange.
    If you have one you don't like please PM me.

    Agree. The 5000k 3 O’Clock High is currently my favorite emitter tint. This one has me excited.

    Thanks for the good news! I hope there will be horrible beamshots with the 5400 K too, so that we can cross beams and see the differencies between these two.

    Updated OP with horrific beam shots (my rum shots are so much better) and some data on the 5400.

    Does this mean the 5000k won’t be available until the SS40 are all sold?

    Will probably put the Samsung 5000k up on Monday if Henry isn't dead.
    We are almost out of the SS40 that are potted in heads. Only a couple left. What remains are mounted SS40s that will be reserved for BeCu and SS. So pretty much, if someone wants an SS40 in a non-special metal light, time is about out.

    I had no interest in this emitter until I saw the nickname. Now thinking I might need one more than I've ever needed anything.

    The SDR50 is now available on the custom page as an emitter choice. This is the Samsung 300 lumen hiCRI.


    Hogo's Monday.

    Yeah. Just ordered mine. The bonus is that I paid for it using money from a knife I just sold on another forum.
