Method Seven’s product review
When it comes to growing there is nothing more important then your eyesight this is even more relevant for us indoor grower’s that use hid/hps/mh lighting. As the light’s we use produce such intense light it can be very damaging to your eyesight especially when working under multiply lights for 8-12 hours per day and some of us do not have the best eyesight to start with!. For the last 5 year’s I have been using my regular sunglasses in my grow room but there is a great new product that has come to my attention called the Method Seven’s glasses. When I first herd about them I thought they were going to do the same job as my regular sunglasses boy was I wrong! For the first time in 10 years I can finally see my grow room and more importantly my plants as nature intended and that is all down to the method seven’s. This will do a few major things, first and foremost they will protect my eyesight from the intense hps lighting, it will allow me to identify any problems a lot faster than if I was just going in there with no eye protection and a added factor you can use you Method Seven’s for taking pictures I just sit my camera lens behind the Method Seven’s and I get the most perfect picture no more orangey/yellow flickery picture’s a must have product.
Let’s take a in-depth look at the Method Seven’s and the benefit’s they will bring.
Our proprietary Rendition lens technology performs a miracle for you. We block the harsh yellow light emitted from High Pressure Sodium lighting ubiquitous to most grow rooms. Then the remaining portion of the light spectrum is re-adjusted in the lens to create white balanced light. Experience “Perfect Color” under HPS lighting – and work unconstrained in spite of that environment.
For the first time under HPS lights, you will see the natural colors of your plants. Monitor plant health; determine correctly the color of your plant leaves, spot pests, disease, rot, mildews, mineral deficiencies and excesses. The Rendition lens reveals color precisely enough to use a PH test strip while in the grow room. All without turning your HPS lighting off or walking your plants, or your testing equipment into daylight. (If you are the kind of person who wants to know the details, you can read about the amazing science behind this below).
And we protect your eyes. Find yourself constantly squinting in the grow room?
Over time constant exposure to high levels of UV and infrared radiation leads to irreparable eye damage. Loss of color perception, cataracts, and the destruction of your night vision are possible. Our Rendition lens blocks all harmful invisible wavelengths (UVA, UVB, UVC and Infrared). Your plants require these invisible wavelengths to flourish. Your eyes certainly don’t.
But that’s not the whole story. Cones and rods within your eyes control the eyes ability to focus and function best at light wavelengths very different from the indoor grow environment. New science proves that the eyes extra effort to focus and correct for excess yellow from HPS lights causes a host of eye strain and health problems. Rendition lenses balance the light in a way that allows your eyes, brain, and body to function correctly again. This results in drastically less mental strain and fatigue. Less fatigue equals better decision-making and a pleasant experience in your grow room.
The Rendition lens is like an oasis for your brain, a savior for your crop, your eyes, and protection for your investment. If you are not blown away by the experience, you can return them within 30 days for a full refund.
As I said before I use my Method Sevens to take much clearer shot’s this is due to “The strobe effect” now what’s the strobe effect you may ask?
THE STROBE EFFECT
Another phenomenon that adversely affects someone working under HPS lighting conditions is the ‘strobe effect’ of all of the lights slightly dimming and slightly getting brighter as the AC voltage cycles. You will not be consciously aware of this phenomenon because our brain compensates for this strobe light effect. Still, this strobe effect causes some people to get headaches or otherwise become ill.
If you use a video camera in a Grow Room you will likely see lines running through your video shot. These lines are from the strobing effect of the HPS lighting. If you place a Rendition lens in front of your video the lines will go away.
The Rendition lens filters out the strobe effect and the Fission lens significantly reduce the strobe effect. They do so by decreasing the intensity of the yellow light spectrum that is being modulating by the AC voltage cycle.
Sunglasses minimally reduce the strobe effect.
WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
While HPS lighting can provide an effective lighting solution, it also presents a hostile working environment. Humans see best under natural daylight conditions.
The Method Seven Rendition and Fission lenses allow the user to see the natural colors in their work environment. These lenses also allow the user to more easily focus on shapes and to detect movement. The Rendition lens eliminates the strobe effect and the Fission lens significantly reduces the strobe effect. Both lenses provide excellent visual clarity. Bottom line, the Rendition and Fission lenses allow the user to get their work done in visual comfort.
Sunglasses, on the other hand, worsen vision under HPS lighting conditions. Color balance is made worse because the blues tend to be filtered out more than the yellows. This also makes it harder to see shapes and motion. Some sunglasses are fairly clear, but many create “muddy” or dull vision.
Just a word about UV protection. All Method Seven glasses provide excellent uV protection. All of the sunglasses we tested, likewise, provided excellent uV protection.
I have been using the hps version of the Method Seven’s for about 12 months and they have become a essential part of my grow room and the guy’s from Method Seven have been hard at work on getting the MH version of the glasses to market which I’m pleased to say are now available along with a L.E.D version and the NEW sun polarized glasses especially for all you outdoor growers, so all light/enviroment users covered!.
The Method Seven range has 2 series of glasses in there collection.
The Rendition series which has 2 pair’s the Resistance series HPS which I use and the Resistance series HPS+ which are silver coated and designed for more intense 10k watt environments.
The Fission series which also has 2 pairs the Operator Fission Series Halide+ Lens and the Operator Fission Series HPS+ Lens these have been manufactured for Method Seven by Carl Zeiss Vision using there unique lens technology. These lenses are silver coated for indoor and outdoor conditions, 100% UV protection, and great value in a polycarbonate lens.
