There are basically two types of flash-bars.
The one you need (and got in that photo) is called Flip-Flash or Top-Flash. It is the vertical type. From this type again there are basically two (interchangable) versions. You got the more advanced type.
The text doesn't mention anything about how you get the diffrent shutter speeds, but "deux vitesses (1/60 et 1/150)" means "two speeds (1/60 AND 1/150)" literally.
Another thought, look in the film compartment for something that can be triggered by a notch on the 110 cassette. Maybe faster film triggered the 1/150?
edit: In the manual for the Kodak Pocket instamatic 10 they mention that you can insert a used magicube to trigger a slower shutter speed in dull sunlight. That model had no settings but obviously two speeds.
Good info, I guess that settles it I'll have to keep around a used/bar just in case I want a slower shutter speed...

Pardon the dust...
I have looked everywhere on the Internet and couldn't find a single image of an adapter so if you could come up with the name of the adapter perhaps maybe that would be easier for me to find one.
It would be extremely amazing if I could find an adapter that had a hot shoe or even just a PC terminal and then I could add a hot shoe after, that would make a lot more creative things happen as I could simply adjust the flash exposure levels in order to make something really interesting. Heck I could even connected to my studio strobes with a pocket wizard and do some really fun things with that.
But right now I'm just working on getting some film before the holidays it seems as though the stores that used to sell the Lomography film, no longer do (Urban Outfitters) and only sell the Fuji Instax and the Impossible Project Polaroid film...
Though the sales guy when I called him didn't seem to really know anything at all about cameras, and kept calling it a phone... Haha, and then said that some of the films they have had squiggly lines on them as a design and that was "fun" haha

GE made a model that let you chose how many bulbs to let go off at one time.

Oh I see, well I think I have that type actually, because when I flashed the flash to flashes went off at the same time, eek! I seem to have two different models, one has ... oh heck I'll just show you....

There was Flip-Flash I and Flip-Flash II, with #I being the classic one.
Thank you for that contacts-photo.
There are no adjustment to be made on that camera.
Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!
Nothing beats a great piece of glass!
I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
I know that, but to expose more accurately just in case I wanted to be more artistic with it, it's good to know what the functions of the camera and shutter speed are so that I can test for the best lighting situations.
