    Hello all.
    I am just wondering if there is such a thing as an adapter that enables you to use 4 ag-1 bulbs on a flashcube socket. If there is, can you please direct me where to get one.
    Thanks

    As a kid I experimented at tearing apart my mom's flash cubes to feed my grandpa's ag-1 flash holder. They worked just fine, save the ocassional one that had a trigger lead snap off too short.

    I guess at age 10 I knew that a 35mm rangefinder beat an instamatic 126 any day for image quality.

    You need to bend the leads to line up in the way that the real AG-1's present them, after striaghtening them to get the bulb out of the flash cube.

    Such an adapter does exist, but you might have to do a bit of searching to find one for sale; I don't think it's an especially common item.
