    looking for handheld flashgun...

    one that is capable of multiple shots without changing bulb

    wanting to illuminate large areas in total dark with camera in time mode

    something like
    Kodak Duaflex II with kodet lens
    N75 N8008s D60
    Yashica - D

    Vivitar 285 , there is no such thing as a reuseable flash bulb for the unit you pictured.

    you can take any flash and do multiple pops exactly where light is needed using a lower power flash
    vivitar 285 are cheap
    You could buy numerous cheap flashes and surround your space which will pop when they sense the "on camera" flash has popped
    Finding a flash with the output of those bulbs I assume will be expensive upwards of $500-1G and I don't know whether those need independant -large- batteries for charging or not
    Illuminating large, dark spaces outdoors consumes a lot of light
    inside where space is contained and walls reflect a much less powerful system is needed

    Outside in true darkness you'll be at full power with fast film with numerous pops no matter what you buy/use

    Outdoors with press25's you could use tri-x at a distance of 30ft? from your subject with a very wide aperture -probably as wide as you can go- and still not have enough light in one flash to expose correctly

    have you seen the light?

    Singer Graflex globe strob 500HV



    masking tape says not repairable, perhaps it's due to bad caps or a dead 450v battery

    eveready 496 neda 740 graflex 2292

    this'll make for fun

    from this link

    Guide Number for ASA 100:
    211 at Full power (7,100 ECPS Light Output)
    150 at 1/2 power (3,600 ECPS Light Output)
    102 at 1/4 power (1,650 ECPS Light Output)
    Energy Storage is 200 watt seconds.

    You could use something like a Metz 60 (or the Metz 45 if you want something easier to find) if you want to walk around painting with a flash.

    I'll second the Metz 60CT series. My CT2 has GN 100 at 180. Your GN must presume some defined sort of reflector. I also have a Braun Hobble EF300 circa 1966 that has the same sort of kick.

    If you want the head to stay the same, the pack Braun flashes put out about 500V full power, 380 half power, and do all triggering in the head. The metz packs genrate the same sort of voltage, but have a third lead that goes back to the pack to quench the discharge on auto mode, to prolong use on a single battery charge.

    My braun was written off due to no 4V wet cell batteries being availbale any more. I house 2V spiral AGM 2V cells in a supplimentary housing under the battery pack to generate the 8V it needs. I tested it on a 6V UPS battery to verify the ocsilator and capacitors before sinking money into new batteries. There is a fuill thread on the rehab. Search Braun Hobby EF300 here.
    my real name, imagine that.

    the metz 60 would be powerful enough.. basically to go on my crown graphic and enable a reasonable dof

    Unfortunately the Metz 60 is quite expensive and a big, heavy beast. I found two Agfatronic 643 CS in auctions, they have about the same output (guide number 210 at 100 ASA), they are much smaller and lighter and pretty cheap, and they use AA batteries or AA size rechargeable batteries.
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    solution

    2 flashes arrived UPS today
    Nikon SB-11, still need to acquire SC-23 sync cord
    Sunpak 522
    both GN 120

    tested both out tonight "chimping" with the D60 using open flash 5324



    also recieved adjustable high voltage power supply, will try later
    Kodak Duaflex II with kodet lens
    N75 N8008s D60
