Lips, have you found any lenses that will fit these that will allow UV and IR to pass through?  I would be interested in purchasing one if I can get one of these lenses in addition to the original one.

Thanks,
     Tom

Runtime

Just curious what people are getting on their runtimes (Panasonic 3400mah batteries)? Either at 24W or 40W

Runtime  Test

Sanyo 2600             24W   55min   40W  40min
Panasonic 2900        24W   65min   40W  55min
Panasonic 3400        24w      ?        40w     ?

Guy I sold one to ran it continuously at 60w. Not sure what batteries he used. Got 7 min at 60w... (3 min + 3 min + 1 min)

Panasonic 2900 mah 18650PD true 10 amp batteries should give most run-time on High Output levels

More testing with Infrared Filters

I don't know what type of specific glass (cut to fit) to use to let the uv pass. Other than taking lens off and running it like that. I'm sure a simple solution is out there, just don't know what it is...


67mm infrared attached without extension bezel cracked in a few seconds. I haven't tested longer than 30 seconds with the barrel extension in between to give some space from the IR filter

The Bezel of FF5 also has threads so any 67mm screw-on adapter will fit as well as caps like the one that came with the light... FYI




No Light gets out of any of the cracks where screws on:





760nm Filter so you see red glow. Bump to a 950 and you are covert...

Since this light has a 67mm thread on the front, I was looking for some filters that might work with the light. I called the optical experts at B&H Photo and told them my high temperature application. They recommended the following filters made in Germany (high end).  The filters can be purchased at B&H Photo, Amazon and other photography shops. I am not saying these will work, but I am going to try a UV filter and apply a glass etching compound (Armour Etch) to create a diffuser. Just sharing some information for consideration. I sent a copy of this posting to Fire-Foxes for their opinion. If I hear anything back, I'll make another post.

Nice Find!

B+W brand 67mm filters (UV - IR - Colored) should be able to handle the heat... Barrel extension may help even more...

Couple of questions:
You mentioned  "... New lights coming next year also..."
1) Are the new lights in yet? I'm guessing they will be the FF5 and have a replaceable bulb? What is the expected time of arrival?
2) Also, are you the sole USA distributor? I've noticed others with this light for sale, and they refer to a "sole USA distributor".
I'm hoping that you're it!
3) What is the current price w/ shipping to 85742?
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
