Series 1 is on DVD in the US and is absolutely delightful. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys such crime capers. General all-around irreverence, Phryne and her flakey side-kicks (including a butler named Butler!).
The camera looks vaguely like an old folder that could fit in the time, but yes, the bulbs and apparent shutter sync are definitely an anachronism.
Anyhow, thanks Aus for some enjoyable programming. I breathlessly anticipate the next series.
