The difference in light intensity produced by each series of floodlight may be related to the difference in the image sensor used by each camera series. LC1C, which is designed using a Starlight Image sensor, is more sensitive to the light it receives so that with the same ambient light intensity the Starlight image sensor absorbs more light than the image sensor in general.
