    Why the need for music while you’re talking?

    my advice, get the most lumens that you can afford. i personally have a 'big blue 15,000tl' it is super bright 15,000 lumens and yet sometimes i wish i had even more power. you want as many lumens as you can get.

    In addition to lumens, another couple of factors to consider when buying a torch are beam angle and color saturation. If you're going for a spotlight, the smaller the beam angle, the more focused the spot will be. With a flood, the wider the angle, the more area your flood will effectively cover. The color saturation is more important for photography/videography. The closer to "natural" light the torch produces, the better your subjects will look in the photo/video. For example, natural daylight has a score of color score of 100. Getting a light with a score of 90 will get you pretty close to that natural light.
