    I understand that, and that is part of why I am still holding out hope for actual specs and useful reviews. Though I do note that it seems to me that an array would have to have a focus distance for the target beam angle and any other distance would result in a larger effective beam angle.

    Regardless, what I have seen in the industry is that small light heads with multiple emitters generally do NOT have beams that are nearly as tight as what I would prefer. Especially in relatively inexpensive lights. Thus my skepticism. I was HOPING for a D620 with a bigger battery pack and a tighter beam angle - and nothing else (unless they could also make it variable focus). This D630 is simply not that - at all.

    So, no official updates of any kind now that DEMA is over and everyone is long gone home? Did they mean next year's DEMA???

    :p

    Fwiw i had the focusable 32W Light Monkey. With the size of its XHP70 emitter, its beam was less tight than a triple emitter Big Blue light.. and it had a really ugly cross pattern in the center.

    Yeah, a local buddy got that LM 32VF light and I am not really impressed with it....

    Hi all.
    I came across this thread as I was seriously thinking about getting myself a D620 canister light.
    This is a link to a DEMA report that shows details about the new D630. Unfortunately, Orca are not very easy to communicate with so I am struggling to find info on that new product as well (explanation and general description - in the video itself): OrcaTorch DEMA Show 2018 Report
    Regards,
    Delyan

    Hi Delyan, sorry, the language of the video is French. We will try to subtitle in English, so that will be better for understanding.

    @OrcaTorch, was that a paid review? I assume it was, but I just want conformation one way or another...
