    Hey all,

    I've always wanted to use flash bulbs on my Canon EF & AE-1P, or any of my cameras for that matter.

    Some have doubted whether they made a purpose-built device for this, but indeed they did and it's called the Canon V3. I've included a picture. (Butkus site, Canon EF, Pt. 2, Pages 6-7)

    I'd also be open to any other cold/hot shoe mounted flash guns (if a cold shoe, it obviously needs a PC connector). Whaddya got? Make me an offer :cool:

    Honeywell Tilt-a-Mite II

    I have two things you might be interested in.

    1st- Honeywell Tilt-A-Mite II. Pretty neat little flash. I believe it is a hot shoe, however if you want to put it on a side bracket, the top flips back and you can unplug the PC cable and plug into your camera. There is a button on the back that says "cube advance", so apparently it takes cubes.

    2nd- Canon J-3, cold shoe with PC cable. a switch on the bottom lets you choose if you want to use "AG" bulbs or "PH" bulbs. There is one (1) bulb in the flash and a package of five (5) to go with it.

    I really don't know what these things are worth, so make me an offer and remember I like camera stuff too.

    PS-I did rotate these, but for some reason it didn't end up that way when uploaded.
