    Hi

    I have some Multiblitz Profilux 400 heads which soon will need replacement of flash tubes and pilot bulbs. Where can I buy these for fair price? And what tubes and bulbs can I use?

    I cannot find much when I search Google...:sad:

    Greetings Morten

    Out of the morbid curiosity that stems from using the same system... how do you know you are about to lose the bulbs?

    Sounds a bit like watching Nascar and hoping for a crash...

    I have kept count of the times I have used the flash heads, and compared it to the life-time of a flash tube.
