"We see light, not dark. But it is in the dark that we feel goblins and ghosts." - Rex Brandt
The lightbulb inside of the body is 800 lumen which is considerably bright. The light passes through a 75mm F/4N enlarging lens. This serves two functions: 1. Focuses the light emitted from the LED into a directed beam. 2. Allows the user to adjust the aperture size, allowing him/her to brighten or dim the light depending on the environment.
This lamp was meant to be used as a reading light. With its focused beam the user can direct the light where he/she wants while creating a minimal amount of ambient light.
