It takes about 20-30 minutes for your eyes to fully dark adapt when doing photography at night. Red light does not mess with that process. Turn on a white light and you have to start dark adapting all over again.
Why Separated button is key?
Below is what Mr.JimDoty say: After leading dozens of night photography field trips, I have decided one of the most frustrating things to have happen is for someone to accidentally turn on a white light and ruin the dark adaptation of the whole group. The problem is some headlamps make you cycle through all the white light settings to get to the red LED. That is a terrible design for night photography. So the most essential feature for a night photography headlamp is a separate button to turn the red LED on and off. It is even better if the red LED button is separated from the white LED button.
I love this wonderful lamp for two reasons: by one hand it is really nice for hiking at night because of its powerfull white light. On the other hand if you are taking pictures of astronomical objects, its red lamp is wonderful for your eyes because it doesn't spoil your night vision. Futhermore, the red light has another switch, so it's independent of white light.
I love this headlamp! It's perfect for hiking at night and the red lights are great for setting up at night. I highly recommend it!
So far the runtime with the red lights on is pretty lasting.
I really enjoy using this bit of kit. The red lamp is perfect for outdoor night use when photographing and the 3 stage white light is very bright with a good spread
I Love my MSM for how easy it is to take with me to remote shooting locations. Set up is easy and for my Olympus EM-1iii tracking is very steady. I've just added the Red LED head lamp and polar scope to my set up and find the quality to be top notch. Having USB charging off wall or power pack is just what I was looking for. Thanks MSM!
Yes I have'nt had the opportunity to get out because of the virus lockdown but it seems file on short term inspection.
I recently tried with fuji system with xt30 and a 18-55 lens... It gave grt result and very easy to setup with the laser and i hv been able to track 4min and 82 mm equivalent FF focal Length. Will try this tracker in my upcoming workshops.
