Well,

I can say im not disappointed at all after spending $50 on a fog machine, I no longer need to use the shower steam lol. As im known around the forums to be the guy who likes <5mW(and proud to be) I now have a better way to show the beam on these little guys when I do my reviews. Not only that but my camera seems to pick up the color very well(the pictures look exactly how I saw them in person).

Enjoy how amazing 5mW can look with fog :D

Nice Alex! That's definitely 50$ put to good use. Make sure to open a window after use though to clear the room from leftover moisture.

Nice beam shots btw!

Great idea/purchase!

Perfect way to enjoy the beams and show off your less then 5mW lasers
You know it!

Now 5mW has a chance to compete with those Class IV lasers in terms of beam visibility :)

I have that same fog machine. In all honesty I found that burning Palo Santo wood o nag champa works better because the particulates are much smaller which causes less haze in the room for pics and lasts longer but when I want to get funky the fog machine is a lot of fun. It just doesn't last very long IME? Haze machines are best which is why they use them for laser shows but even entry level ones cost a few hundred dollars and good ones up are over a grand. The particles of haze are very small and good ones you can't really see in the air but make the beams intently bright which is great for lighting effects.
Congrats Alex. New name I see.

Thank you freefly, and yep new name! :wave:

The fog actually last quite long! After turning the machine off and running the A/C along with opening the door to the room I was in, the fog was still there 10 mins later.

I sold my other ones to start collecting the green spectrum with CNI PGL's :)
