    Same or not?

    Hi, does anyone know if GE M3 is having same base as Sylvania M3 and are they same type of bulb?

    I read somewhere online said that GE M3 is having Bayonet base while Sylvania M3 has Miniature Pinless for its base...

    So are they same or not?

    BTW, what does Bayonet and miniature pinless mean?

    Thanks!

    GE, Westinghouse and Sylvania all made M3 bulbs. The base is the same.

    It was the GE 5 and GE 6 and the Sylvania Press 25 and 26 that had the Bayonet base with pins. Lots of companies made No. 5 bulbs. All of them have pins.

    I use a cheap flash with a PC cord plugged into the flash port. I got the idea from the Land list here http://www.rwhirled.com/landlist/how2-packflash.htm

    Do you still have flash bulbs to sell?
    Would you send them to Germany?

    M3 Bulbs

    Found my old polaroids and thought I'd start using them again now that I found out they started making film for them again. But I can't find the bulbs anywhere, not even on Ebay. Anyone know of any other options? Thanks.
