What does it mean that it has an 8 degree angle?
The angle of the light shining from the flashlight goes out at an 8 degree angle. So it has a more focused beam of light not like a flood light . Is a fantastic light but is large ! Hope that helped
damn good light buy it!
This light has a narrow beam like a spot, I so far has been a very impressive light.
Think of it as a focused light (8 degrees) vs. a flood light (45 degrees). The 8 degree light provides a tunnel of light. I have the light you have enquired about and I love it. I dive in the Pacific NW. Flood lights have limited utility here.
I think they are refering to the angle on the reflector. That angle is supposed to concentrate the beam of light.
I haven't used my yet, I have a dive trip scheduled for next week. The theory is that the light beam will penetrate through the water similar to the way a spotlight focuses the beam of light.
Higher angle reflectors diffuse the lifght more, dispersing the light. However, if there is a lot of particulate in the water, the particulate will be alluminated, making I'd difficult to really see the target of what you want to alluminate.
The light is very bright, and I like is so far. I bought it For an upcoming night dive. I'll know more after next week.
I hope this is helpful.
It means it has a narrow beam of light, almost a spot light. What this does is concentrate the light for a long distance. You know it is a good light when all the dive masters on the Odyssey in Truk Lagoon want one now after seeing mine over a 2 week period diving the wrecks there. It is an awesome wreck diving handheld light.
It's the beam angle. The light diverges at an angle of 8 degrees from the reflector. Basically it's a spot rather than a flood.
I really have no idea, but the light is incredible and easy to handle!
It gives you a more focused light beam,very bright. Works great in low visibility conditions, like off the coast of Virginia. Great light!
