Super! You'll have a lot of fun with it and wow everyone around. You probably know this but just remember that it's not a toy. These can instantly blind you if you happen to catch the beam in the eye.

Some photographers would disagree with it's use because of the potential it has to cause harm and the concerns are absolutely legitimate. Acting responsibly is key with anything you do whether your driving a car or out hunting or target practicing with your rifle. Your not suppose to drive into people or point your gun at them either.

However, for that one moment something goes horribly wrong, which can happen to anyone, I carry with me a hefty $$ personal liability insurance package because of running my own photography workshops.

Cheers Hercules!

Choice of Color:
It appears that different colors have different reach. Did you take that into account? Any reason why you selected green?
Thanks

Thanks spy,, I won't be pointing it at anyone but do you mean blind like lose your eye or blind for a few minutes or so? I just need to keep the batteries out and hide it from my son, also does it have a safety switch on it? also I ordered the red laser is that ok or should I have got the green one? thanks

The title and pic reminds me of the 2010 sci-fi movie, Skyline. Nice effect on an already nice background.

As far as brightness goes, the green laser is the brightest over the red or purple. You may be able to change the order if you phone them. The 75mW laser will cause permanent eye damage and they do have a safety pin you pull out which deactivates it.

Hey schmintan, the green laser is the brightest light and putting that light right where you want it for ease of focus lock is why I have it.
