Just upgraded from my trusty old Speedglas to a new Elite analog. Weather was nice today, so I was working on the pad in front of my shop. I was surprised that the sunlight made it almost impossible to get the filter to work right - if I bumped the sensitivity towards max, it wouldn't darken, if I turned it back down towards the mid setting, it would stay dark. Finally moved the work inside - seemed OK then. Other Elite owners have the same experience? My SpeedGlas (fixed 11 shade) never seemed that sensitive to ambient light. Maybe I shoulda sprung the extra for a Digital Elite..
No announcement yet.
