    An Olight I5T EOS. Should be shipping in about a month due to them selling around 10,000 of them over the weekend...

    Can confirm. Also, the Nokia phones take pretty pictures. Reason might be Zeiss, the sensors or the software. Probably all of them together.

    Also bought this since I seem to be taking this sport thing rather seriously in 2020.

    Noice. I've an S30R III for when I'm out and about, although for just around the house I've started carrying an i3T - surprisingly bright for a single rechargeable AAA, but unsurprisingly doesn't last very long!

    The kids have an S2R each, too. Which sounds ridiculously excessive, but I used my eldest constantly stealing mine as an excuse to upgrade - then my youngest was feeling left out, and I'm a sucker for puppy-dog eyes!

    Oh, and there's one of the non-rechargeable Batons in the car.

    I have an i3E on my keys, mainly for checking around the bins for dropped off packages and stuff, and there's an older Fenix LD20 in my bag (along with spare AA and AAAs for them, like you said, the i3 models go through a single AAA pretty quickly). I shall be picking up one of the Li-ion rechargeables at some point, depending on offers and the like.

    Definitely not made by them, but uses some of their technology.

    The DJI site says "Co-engineered in partnership with Hasselblad after two years of tireless research, the Mavic 2 Pro comes equipped with the all-new Hasselblad L1D-20c camera.
    The L1D-20c possesses Hasselblad’s unique Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) technology, 5 helping users to capture gorgeous 20-megapixel aerial shots in stunning colour detail."
    There's probably a bit of Sony in addition to the 1" sensor, as Hasselblad rebodied some Sony cameras a few years ago with their own firmware and branding.

    Will take them to Specsavers next week for a firm kick in the balls to the tune of £63 for prescription lenses.

    £63 to reglaze some specs isn't bad at all. I quote from £80 to a lot more than £80 for cutting and fitting lenses.

    Polarised are £80+. It all depends on what you want on them I guess :)

    I look in my pocket and there it is.

    No, but seriously: it's decent. The hardware's fast, not going to run out of storage any time soon since I threw a 128GB microSD in there, and I've had at least one security/feature update a month since I bought it. Downsides: it's still Android 9 with no word on when 10 will drop, and the camera is... odd. Like, there's clearly a pretty good sensor there, but it fails miserably at guessing what white balance it should use so most of the time the colours are well off where they should be. RAW mode is useless, 'cos the colours are even further away from reality. And autofocus is aggressively wrong on anything other than a completely static subject.

    All-in, it's worth the price I paid but probably not much more.
