What is the approximate beam spread of this light? Is it uniform or does it have a hot spot?
We used this light on a night dive to about 75 ft in the Caymans. Not sure how to measure the beam spread, but the light cannon blew all the other lights being used away. Was able to see a wider area and colors were vivid. Didn't notice a hot spot. We were very pleased with its performance.
It's pretty uniform and wide. There is a hot spot but it's not that noticeable.
Say compared to an SL4, the beam is significantly wider and has barely any hotspot
The beam is uniform I haven't noticed a hot spot. I'm quite happy with this light and know that others with whom I dive regularly also really like it.
If it had a hot spot, I didn't notice it. The spread varies w/distance from the bottom. This is a fantastic light-they don't call it a light cannon for nothing.
Light works great, have had a number of lights over the years this one the best I've had.
That depends mostly on how far away you are. The light definitely has an area where the brightest light is located, but the spread is quite large and uniform. I would say that the brightest area is within 30-40 feet of te light, but the spread is quite uniform. This light is ALWAYS the brightest and nicest in the water, and the last two I have owned have been sold to Divemasters in foreign countries who beg to buy it.
All I can say is that I am on my third, and keep buying this light because it s the best!
Well.... For the very short time it worked..... It was uniform. The first time I used it ( loved it!) and then it would not turn off. Unfortunately, it never turned off and I think it burned something inside as it smells. Great light if it did not have the switch issue
