    Want to borrow your light(s) for testing

    Hey folks! I was wondering if there are members here who could lend me
    their equipment for a headlight review. I would like to take side by side
    pics/videos of a couple of lights. I won't use your light in the rain or do a
    drop test with YOUR light. Some of you know that in addition to travelling
    and cycling; I also do videos testing products that are cycling related. I'm
    located in the New York City area and can pick-up after working hours or
    on the weekend. I have a generic P7 flashlight that I would like to compare
    to this light that I just got:
    http://dx.com/p/cree-xm-l-t6-4800lm-...x-18650-199920

    I'm very interested in having a Magicshine(or clone), Dinnotte, Niterider or
    other powerful light(s) for this comparison. It may also be interesting to
    have a dyno powered light in the mix.

    To give you an idea of what I'm planning to do, here is a sample of my
    previous reviews:

    Techlite Lumen Master from Costco $18 3pack flashlight review - YouTube
    Night Rider shot in 1080p - YouTube
    SINGFIRE SF-90 BIKE LIGHT REVIEW - YouTube
    GF SAID TITLE IS "HOW I WASTED MY SAT. NITE" - YouTube

    Thanks in advance!

    i watched your videos and i think we probably live within 3 miles from each other. i live in the vicinity of Coney Island Hospital in Brooklyn.

    you can't borrow my lights, but if you want you can let me borrow YOUR lights and i will review them for you side by side with mine

    here is my YouTube channel:

    https://www.youtube.com/user/UnapologeticGeek

    in addition to the lights that i am using in my latest video:

    Bike Lights in Various Lighting Conditions ( NiteFlux, Dinotte, etc ) - YouTube

    namely:

    L&M Seca 1700
    Philips SafeRide
    Dinotte 400R
    NiteFlux Red Zone 8
    Trek Beacons
    MonkeyLectric M232 ( X 2 )
    Bike After Dark Fireball MK3 ( X 2 )

    i also have:

    * a second L&M Seca 1700 ( both now installed on Helmet )
    * cateye LD 1100 tail light
    * cateye LD 120 spoke lights ( x 4 )
    * princeton tec EOS bike ( 80 Lumen )
    * Fenix TK22 tactical flashlight
    * Fenix LD12 tactical flashlight

    i can compare any of the lights you give me to any of the lights i have, videotape it and give you the raw footage on USB drive ( you provide the USB drive, my camera shoots 24 MBPS AVCHD 1080 30P video, which eats up 11 GB per hour of video, so i suggest you bring a 16GB or bigger USB drive )

    then you can edit it, add your own caption, music, commentary and upload it to your channel.

    if i feel like it i may edit my own version of the video and upload it to mine.

    Hey Androgen! I just realized now that it was you I was chatting with on Youtube. Thanks
    for your offer but I'll pass for this round of testing. I made the same request on another forum and was able to borrow a P7 Magicshine and another member said I can meetup to do comparisons with his dynamo light. Also, I'm expecting a Magicshine MJ 816 clone in a few weeks. So I have a full line-up.

    In the future I would like to do a collaboration with you. Meetup somewhere, setup a test bike and cameras on tripods. Switch different lights on the bars, maybe some videos with the lights in use. Let me know what you think.

    You guys crack me up. I want to borrow lights from both of you for my super-mega test. Haha.

    Can't you guys just get together and do the testing at the same time. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the eventual results.
