    Nice. Send me your email and I'll send you my master spreadsheet.

    That was my observation too. It validated my lux readings.

    Can you call it Mtbr Measured Lux? That way, it's clear that these numbers are just for our setting.

    How about if Francois publishes that chart as part of the shoot out?

    You've done an excellent job, in your 2012 shootout Francois !!! Was wondering if you've had a chance to do an in-depth review of the Gemini Xera ???

    Man, I'm soooooo tired of waiting for the results. I mean, it's daylight savings time already and we have to buy our lights about 2 weeks ago.

    I was thinking, perhaps for next year Francios could set a higher bar for acceptance into the reviews. It's nice to see all options covered but it may be too much for one man to handle.

    Maybe I missed it, but has anyone done a spreadsheet/chart/graph that shows measured MTBR LUX vs $$?

    Just wondering, as it gives people a good place to start regarding best "bang for buck"...then add on quality etc after that, but it would be a helpful starting point.

    ^^this.

    I'd set a bar at nothing less than 500 lumens. By next year that's going to be pretty much the entry ante.

    I think it would be great to have separate "Light Shootouts". Do one for Commuter Lights(<400lm), one for Budget Lights (<$50), and one for Singletrack Lights. Then just refresh those shootouts once a year in August/September as the companies come out with new products and the days get shorter. But all that aside, this is hands down the best light roundup out there. Nice work Francois!

    Oh heck no. If there was no negatives, it would be tough to improve!

    At the end of the shootout do you a summary of the results? Would be really nice to have that overall perspective after testing has been complete.

    Thanks for this great light resource!

    Video content

    Ok, is it just me, or did all the MTBR video content just get yanked off of YouTube?
    Maybe something is in the works? Who knows.

    I am particularly interested in seeing how the Gemini Xera compares to the Strykr offerings. Also the new 750 lumen TridenX. That beam pattern is amazing in the old TridenX and with 750 lumen pumping out of that thing, I expect there to be some language like "wow, it works more like a 1200 lumen light"

    Love the reports, keep them coming. I am hoping for some tail lights soon, specifically the DS-500, would love to see that bad boy in action, especially since the new ones are on back-order. Looking for some love from behind .... er ... umm .. that didn't come out right, but so us some tail ... lights.

    Francois,

    In the 2012 Shootout review for the Exposure Diablo, I think you have an error. This year's light for 2012 is NOT twice as bright as last year's light. 59 lux for 2012 (mk.3) and 63 lux for 2010 (mk.2) (IIRC). Last year's 2011 model (mk.2) is significantly brighter than the one for 2010 (which came in about 37 Lux I believe).

    Thanks for all the great work that you have been doing!
