    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.

    I have 4 more tupperware cases filled with bulbs.

    Yes, and others without synch but connected via solenoid, giving only the possibility of a M-synch-like delay.

    I shoot 4x5, and use both strobe and flashbulbs.

    One reason to use flashbulbs is because they result in a different look than strobe. This may have to do with how black and white film reacts to flash bulbs vs. strobe. Flash bulbs give a longer duration blast of light than strobe, and with a broader spectrum of wavelengths of light. Film reacts differently with creamier highlights and improved shadow detail compared to strobe.

    Flashbulbs are also light, powerful, and highly portable. They come in different output strengths, and are especially good for bounced light lighting.

    Give it a try!
