    Thank you Matt!

    I knew Paramount and their cords, but somehow never saw this page.

    That ASA thing also explains why I never came across it, whereas a fellow US-member told me it would be common.
    Strange enough though I have not found that socket in my US strobes-literature of the 40's.

    Hi AgX.. F-Stop from MM here.. 2773812

    I once restored an old folder that came with a small folding flash bulb refelctor that had a rigid connector so the unit would sit right on the shutter itself. If I find it in my collection I'll send up a pic of it.
