I remember someone asked me about the X200A's "Halo" effect awhile back. My cellphone camera is pretty crappy, but you get the idea. This is just from a few inches away from the wall, but you can definitely see it at night. When I'm out in the desert doing night shooting it looks REALLY awesome when it's like 50 feet across. Oh, and the more you distance you pull out, the spotlight in the middle is diamond-shaped.
