Mods -Can we please have a beamshot thread made sticky
like the diy database one
with only beamshots and emmitter / optic specs

If you agree register your interest here
Quite a good idea Mr Trout :thumbsup:

IMHO everyone beamshot should be made with the same camera settings.
e.g. MTBR shootout settings

"camera settings: full manual, ISO-100, Exposure-6 seconds, Aperture-F4.0, Focus-Manual, White Balance-Daylight"

Does anyone know how to change the exposure and whatnot on my canon SD850IS? I don't think it's possible but maybe it is...

Here are some I took last night. F2.8, ISO200, exposure time 1 second, it just happened to use these settings, I didn't change anything.

Triple XR-E R2 with Ledil, Carlco, and DX1920 optics compared

This is my first build, an achesalot design using 3 x XR-E R2 WC tint, running at 1000ma using buckpuck. All shots taken using DSLR - 6 seconds, F4, ISO 100, whitebalance = daylight.

The soccer goal is 40' away and the yucca tree is another 90' past that.

The images are in this order:

- control
- comparison using MTE SSC P7 torch
- 3 x DX 1920 optics
- Carclo optics - 2 x ripple medium + 1 x plain tight
- Ledil optics - 2 x CRS-M + 1 x CRS-SS

** Control **

** comparison using MTE SSC P7 torch **

** 3 x DX 1920 optics **

** Carclo optics - 2 x ripple medium + 1 x plain tight **

** Ledil optics - 2 x CRS-M + 1 x CRS-SS **
