Default DX 200: Dilda - the aftermath.

Black electricians tape. I was going to cut off a piece to burn, then I thought why bother, just burn a piece off!

Here's a macro shot of the aftermath.

Looks cool. A vid would be nice too.

PS: How is the focus ring? I've heard some reports of it feeling unstable. Is this the case with yours?

There is a bit of wobble, but I'm going to try teflon tape on it, that ought to tighten it up.

The tape above is thicker and duller than the usual stuff - it was advertised as fireproof.

It doesn't really burn, just curls up.

Default Re: DX 200: Dilda - the aftermath.

So, is it just me or do these things suck down batteries like there's no tomorrow? My fresh panasonic CR2's from DX lasted two days in this thing. I mean, yea I was using it a lot but not THAT much. I thought the thing actually had something wrong with it because all the sudden it just dimmed out, and the batteries still felt pretty strong (the tongue test... lol). Popped in a fresh pair when I got home and all was well again.

Default Re: DX 200: Dilda - the aftermath.

well it probably had about 30 minutes total run time on it... but they never showed signs of weakening. It was working fine and burning, and then all the sudden it just faded out. Then I would let it sit for a few mins, turn it back on, and it would be strong for about 5 seconds and then fade out. The contact looks fine but I am going to add some solder to it as well. But it also had the same symptom when I bypassed the switch. When I replaced the batteries all was fine again. Maybe i'm just not used to the run time on it, since this is my first high power red.

Default Re: DX 200: Dilda - the aftermath.

I guess its just the batteries then. I've measured the thing consuming around 300 mA, which should give you up to 2 hours on full CR2's, but perhaps they werent full or not of good quality.

Interesting....since it is drawing 300ma's it should be putting out close to 200mw's. Sounds like a good deal.
