Announcement:

  • My Hagner E4-X Lux meter is out for calibration at the manufacturer in Sweden. Hopefully, I will get it back soon and have even more precise measurements.
  • Hagner Lux Meter received back. First review with new measurement is Noctigon KR1
  • Calibration lights arrived from Maukka. not yet in use.
  • The new calibration set is in use, but built into the old red S2+ I have been using for a while. Starting July 23
  • July 27: measured Jetbeam M2S, Weltool W3 pro and Weltool W4. I adjusted the ratings for the Jetbeam M2S. At a 20 meters distance, it performed less than at 10 meters. So I updated the info. I probably need to do another measurement just to make sure.
