« on: September 14, 2010, 10:38:11 PM »
Hey all, I have a mint/new 4sevens Preon 2 warm white with extra 1 cell body (so you can assemble a preon 1 with clicky) available.

I have only tested it briefly around the house. Have too many nice AAA lights so this one is available. Body is black.

It is the limited run warm white edition and includes the standard green packaging etc.

Asking:

 $41 Cash PP, shipped BC/USA, cash (no fee option) paypal, if using credit or other option, please add $2.

Worldwide shipping is an extra $2. Insurance is an extra $5 if needed.

Not responsible for postal mishaps.

Good luck with the sale.  It's a great light.  I'd be all over it if it was neutral!

Oh, I guess you find warm to be too warm?

Maybe I should just sell the Preon 2 and keep the 1 cell body so I can get a neutral myself...

No wait, trying to reduce my collection, must maintain control.

Hi Sean warm white in essence gives better color rendition put simply it'll show colors more vivid than say cool white  ;)




[edit] think of a tungsten light bulb or incandescent flashlight or even our sun, a warm white led will try to mimic this  :tu:

I am colourblind and I carry a warm tint Quark that Terry has sent me as a tester.  Works well with my eyes.

Indoors, yes; outdoors, no.  I don't think I would use a Preon outdoors as much as in.

I prefer a neutral EDC.

Actually, that's a neutral tint Quark....   :twak:

Warm is even closer to an incan tint.  8)

No , it's not a fact,    at least not for everyone.   I'm colorblind  and prefer the  brighter  white.

Of course there is colour blind and then there is colourblind.  Different indivduals can/can't see different wavelengths.  That's true even amongst non-colour blind individuals as well.

Neil's vaguely related factoid for the day... Its possible that due to mutation some women might have (and make use of) four different colour receptors in their eyes instead of the usual three.

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

Love that article Neil - thanks for the link.

Being the geek/geneticist that I am, I read it and pondered it a while....

If "Madam Tetrachromat" had the ability to make use of the extra set of photopigments fully in neurological  terms, perhaps that would have been an evolutionary advantage. Being able to detect dangers that were not discernible to others such as the colour of food stuffs for instance, might have been an extra survival mechanism. However, as it is not exactly a mutation and more an example of X chromosome inactivation going wrong, I'm not sure how this advantage could have been an evolutionary one, which would have ensured it's persistence in the gene pool (like sickle cell in Malaria ridden regions).... I've just talked myself round in a circle I think  :think:

Anyhoo, they stated that there could not be a male with this unique ability due to not having two X's, but what about syndromes such as Kleinfelter's Syndrome where men have XXY chromosomes? Perhaps it would be possible to activate both sets of the gene in this case and create a tetrachromatic male.

It's certainly raises interesting possibilities regarding potential gene therapy for colour blindness though :)

See what you've done Neil? Today was so simple before I ha to start thinking about this :D


Oh, and BTW, women can also be colour blind albeit far rarer. My ex was, but then she was also an utterly odious troll, sadly not so so rare  ::)

How about a $1 drop, will that push you over the edge?

Every time I sell a light, I end up buying another, I am waiting to sell this one to fund a peak...  So feel free to undulge yourself, you will not be disappointed!

I don't need any fingers atm, thanks, but will keep this in mind for later.

Perhaps an extra index finger could be useful at times, can I get a spare thumb too?

Yes I can access super glue for skin so if you feel you need more  :think: say like fifteen fingers I can accommodate,Note! they may not all match color wise/texture  ;)

I guess that would be okay, but I kinda want a colour match.  It's hard to use them if they don't match.  Can I send you a skin sample and perhaps you can try to match it?
