This headlamp works as it should. Never need to use the white light. MSM responded well to my requests and shipped it quickly. No complaints, Strongly recommende
The headlamp allows a choice of either white light or red light. I’ve been using only the red light function for astrophotography and it works very well.
It is powered by a rechargeable battery that seems to last for several hours. The only little inconvenience is that the charging cable is different from that of the NOMAD and the laser pointer charger but that’s not really a big deal. It come with the proper cable.
All in all I’m very happy with this purchase.
I like the 2 separate buttons for the white and red lights. The white light is angled lower than the red light. It should be the other way around. The white light used for walking, hiking etc and the red light used more for looking down at the camera to adjust settings etc.
Arrived in a timely manor , the lights themselves seem to work as advertised but the rubber covering the button is hard to press in the cold.
For the price I think they are a worthwhile item.
Very nice headlight! Great to have the red light available on its own!
If you want to shoot astral, you already know to use a red light (ideally) as necessary for setup / setting changes once it's dark. But it's near impossible to hold a red flashlight while setting or changing mount alignment, camera or intervalometer controls, etc. Hands-free is the way to be!
The best thing about this particular headband mounted light is that it's rechargeable. Another nice feature: a separate button for white light, handy when you're all done (and not interfering with anyone else's work!), for lugging your gear back to the car without tripping on something!
On the negative side, the red light could be situated better within its housing. Ideally, it would point more downward - I find I'm tilting my head down and looking more up with my eyes to see what I'm doing. The white light is fine as-is.
Also, I'm not sure the second click on the red light making it a flasher is really important to most astral photographers - doubt I'll ever use it.
Those minor complaints aside, well worth the price and a must-have item!
This does exactly what I bought if for, and I love the ability to have independent switched for both red and white lights. The red light could be a fraction brighter but is adequate for my needs, and the white light is super bright when on full power, great for the trek out.
The MSM head torch with red light for astrophotography is a fantastic piece of kit.
I charged it up with the supplied USB cable, and even though I have used it a lot it has not needed charging again yet. Super powerful white light beam and separate switch for the red light is a very nice touch. The angle of the head torch can be adjusted easily. All in all it has surpassed my expectations. I would recommend this to anyone.
I like this headlamp so much I bought two of them! This is a great headlamp for astro work. The red LEDs are perfect for night photography and the white light is powerful enough to guide me out of my locations. I keep one in my camera bag and one in my car,
