how many mw where your red an green lasers.
i have been reading alot about safty. and i see how serious it is.
i just recieved my first "real" laser oke maybey the second. my 5mw green one migh be overspec. its way brighter then my 200mw red which i just recieved.
i don't have any glasses yet i might buy those +-20 dollar glasses @ lazerer.
or is their a real cheap alternative.
so i have tested my laserpointer and pointed it on my wall and carpet.
the wall is white an 10 meters away. the carpet is blue. an the rest outside @ night
and it was for very short periods of time. ( i assmume very reasonable this would not have done any damage. but i know you have to be real carefull ITS NOT A TOY)
i already found i am not a burner i lit one match oehhhh to see if it works but it doesnt burst my bubble, i rather like pointing it up in the sky or point at very distand objects. i love how far it travels.
i also got a love for bright flashlights because they throw far. but nothing beats a laser
i think i will love the 50mw green one which i will recieve soon the most. its not about the power for me but about a nice beam.
and 50mw gonne be plenty.
yes yes and plenty to kill my eyes. i know. and its soo easy just make that one mistake.
so i am uber causious and dont even focus the beam too much so its a big dot on my wall
but i really wounder about my green laser nowis 5mw really that bright my 200 mw doesnt compare at all.
is my cheap green dx overspec? i start thinking it is. ( video to compare http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_td1nxiyfM)
and i hope you dont ge me wrong i understand you guys totaly on how mandatory glasses are.
Green wavelengths appear brighter to the human eye than red wavelengths because that's just how our eyes work.
