    I finally got around to consolidating all my flood lamps and flashbulbs. I still have enough left over to fill up 2 more of these huge Tupperware containers.

    I have about 300 or so of the old style edison base 31, 11 and 2/2B bflashbulbs, any value in these, or should I just continue to use them?

    Even if they had a market-value: You are not a dealer and you used to use them. Why not use them furthermore?

    Do NOT give these away, I work in the movie industry and the prop master told me they pay around $5-7 per bulb... They went through about 1,000 that day alone.

    They use then in certain "press" scenes, the flash burst is longer and gives a better look than the additional SLR flashes that are given to some of the extras to use.

    So sell them on eBay, you will make a lot as they are no longer manufactured.

    Good luck!

    I used 40 M5 flashblubls at a wedding this weekend. And I am always on the look out for more. If you're using them and like them, well keep using them. The have there own look to them that I do not feel a electronic flash can duplicate.
