    From this: http://www.apug.org/forums/archive/i.../t-102581.html it appears the fast-peak bulbs I remember were type F. They required the use of the X-sync terminals.

    As I recall, they were called fast-rise, even-burn, long-burn types.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    What about the pulsed electronic flashes? Has anyone adapted something like the Olympus flash for OM-4T for FP sync?

    "FP sync was used with FP (flat-peak) flash bulbs designed specifically for use with focal-plane shutters."

    Were there older (lens) shutters that had M synch but not X?

    As people have said, flashbulbs put out a huge amount of light. I don't have any, or anything that uses them, but some day I will. A press camera with working properly cammed rangefinder and flash with a stock of bulbs is on my "someday, because it would be cool" list.

    Of those you've dealt with, which US retailer might be my best resource for flashbulbs, then?

    I have 4 more tupperware cases filled with bulbs.

    Dean Taylor,

    Though Shootar401 hasn't volunteered... you might post a Want-To-Buy in the classifieds...

    APUG might be the best place to find some flashbulbs.

    won't work well

    These won't work well for a variety of reasons. Mainly it puts out a tiny amount of light (relatively speaking) when used in that mode. And it might not be long enough for the Speed graphic FP shutter, even in that mode. (Talking about the Oly F280 flash here.)

    I haven't shot my Heiland with my 4x5 and Ektar 127 yet, but I shoot M3 bulbs with my 1950s Canon IVSB rangefinder. It's for fun factor and nostolgia really. I still find them cheap. A couple weeks ago I got 6 boxes of M3 an M3B rubber banded together at a thrift store for $5. That's 14 cents a pop.
