HDR Types on TVs: Brief Guide to Make It Wrong

HDR

If you have decided to buy a TV, it is quite likely that you want it to be 4K (UHD) and HDR. Beyond the specific specifications you are looking for, it is essential that you pay attention to which HDR standard you will have access to depending on the make and model of TV you buy.

So you do not get confused when buying an HDR TV, here is a brief guide on the different HDR standards.

The different types of HDR on your TV

While the quality leap in content viewing is very large and will allow content creators a powerful resource that enhances the user experience, there has been no unanimous agreement on the standard to apply to bring the HDR mode to TVs.

That’s why we currently have two great standards that try to impose themselves some more promoted by companies individually and even name alterations that come from a brand of televisions. Like many beginnings of diverse technologies, there is an established standards war.

HDR10 and Dolby Vision are the two standards struggling to master the HDR of your TV. The second is the most complete but owner and for now only available in the high range

The differences between the different types of HDR are basically in the brightness and color depth with which they can work. » Read more

How to Choose the Best Hunting Flashlight for You

Imagine pursuing your prey when suddenly your cheap flashlight you’ve brought along on the adventure breaks down and leaves you in the dark.

One of the most essential pieces of gear for any hunting trip is a high-quality hunting flashlight.

With all the products out there, however, it can be hard to determine which flashlight is truly the best for hunting.

When looking for the best hunting flashlight, consider the following factors.

The 5 Factors to Help Pick the Best Hunting Flashlight For You

1. Durability

Like all hunting equipment, the best hunting flashlight will have to be able to withstand extreme levels of wear and tear.

You’ll want to find a flashlight that is water and impact resistant.

Durability is one of the first features you should look for when trying to find the right hunting flashlight for you.

After all, there’s no point buying something that will break down easily while you’re hunting your prey.

2. ANSI FL1 Standards

ANSI FL1 standards, a set of flashlight performance guidelines, were introduced to even out the playing field for flashlight manufacturers.

You can use these guidelines to figure out which is the best hunting flashlight for you.

These standards include the following elements:

  • Light output [Lumen]
  • Peak beam intensity [Candela]
  • Beam distance [Meter]
  • Runtime [Hours]
  • Water resistance [IPX Rating]
  • Impact resistance [Meter]

With these standards, you can ignore all those ambiguous marketing phrases you may find on flashlights.

Instead, use the guidelines to make direct comparisons between flashlights from different manufacturers.

3. Beam Type

The lens reflector that surrounds the bulb determines how light is dispersed.

When it comes to beam type, you have three options that are listed below.

  • Fixed or flood type
    • Characterized by a small single beam width
    • Good for general applications (such as walking and camping)
  • Focused or spot type
    • Characterized by a single beam condensed as a spotlight
    • Can penetrate long distances
    • Perfect for fast-paced applications (such as route finding)
  • Adjustable type
    • Has a range of widths varying from wide to focused and any point between the two, for versatility in use

4. Bulb Type

With the numerous advancements in LED technology, why waste your time on bulbs of any other type?

There’s nothing on the market that comes close to LED flashlights when talking about runtime, brightness versatility, impact resistance, and general energy efficiency.

You might opt for units that use disposable batteries. However, you also have the option of a rechargeable model, which comes with built-in lithium ion batteries.

These batteries get juiced up via USB connection to a PC, a solar panel, or an AC or DC outlet.

In the end, while this kind of flashlight may be higher in price, the cost factor will be effectively offset by the flashlight’s low ongoing operational costs (since you won’t need to make repeated purchases of disposable batteries).

5. Size

You’ll need your hunting flashlight to easily fit into a pocket.

Better yet, you can also choose a flashlight with a clip so you can attach it to your belt.

Whichever option you choose, the flashlight must still remain relatively small.

Fortunately, LED lights–while they produce extremely bright light–are also tiny.
