    Let's see. I can carry a Metz 60, or some AG-1bs.

    Some Press 25s, or a Speedo 3200.

    Yeah, tough choice.


    Different story in the studio, of course.

    But fill flash for a group shot on 8x10,
    a few hundred yards from the truck ?

    M2s, nice. P25, really nice. Press 2s ? Actually, too much light.

    Why?

    WWII reenacting in Lewes, De. I want it to look right and this is the recommended flash unit listed in the original literature. Yes, the Kalart is the item I purchased. It has the battery mast. I also picked up an adapter for miniature bulbs.
    Thank you.

    Chris, check a wartime edition of Graphic Graflex Photography.

    Well, it's not gonna be perfect. The B&J was produced in '46 and on but I doubt anyone there will notice.
    Thank you.
