Kessil 360x

Recommended Posts

@A Little Blue is the only person I know that has one so far. Sounded like there was a small manufacturing error on theirs with the mounting holes not drilled in the housing. Might be totally random, but doesn’t speak to the QC of em. 

 

Personally.... I don’t know about shrinking the heatsink to make it look slimmer. LEDs like heatsinks. I’m sure kessil knows what they are doing, but I personally would wait a year or so to make sure they live up to expectations.

Anyone have one yet, or can report on how they work/look?- Thanks

As @HarryPotter mentioned, quality control is/was locking. However, this light is as good or better than any previous Kessil lights. 

A lot of features as far as usability, tweakability and ergonomics. 

Slightly more power than A360, wide spread, better color rendition imho. 

I also like the new vent design which will hopefully prevent periodical maintenance required with previous incarnations. 

Shoot if you have a specific Q. 

Ohhh, and lastly, you probably gonna need the controller to get the most out of this light. That raises the cost just a bit but it’s a must in my opinion.

You mean the spectral controller? Can Apex fusion control it?

Di you have to drill and tap the mounting holes? If so what size, and what size screw?

Not sure. I have watched some videos where they mentioned future compatibility with Apex. At this moment, I don’t have a definite answer. You might be able to use basic functions but I doubt you can really go into color tweaking features through Apex at this time. I can give you my first impressions but other than that you might find better luck with answer to your specific Q with Kessil support dept.
