Thanks I'm all set. I plan on using them during the holidays plus some. I really appreciate it Jim. I owe you a few favors.

You owe me nothing. Several of us owe you for helping to keep this site alive. It's always been a helpful and civil site, unlike some others.

Update on my flash bulb shooting. First there is that very cool factor. Second it isn't that hard. Fourth I like it better than a electronic flash.

Will it replace my other flash units? Quick answer no.

Once you nail down how to figure out the exposure it is pretty simple. I use the flash bulb on my Yashica and Nikon FM2n.

I'm not sure on this but to use them on my Nikon F 100 or Digital bodies I think I would have to buy the Wein Safe-sync. I just haven't bothered to figure out the voltage factor that my flash bulb unit produces. The unit uses a battery and some type of capacitor so I'm just not sure.

I will tell you this the flash bulb gives your photos a nicer look, though that may be something I just want to see, who knows.

Ok so your tired about me talking about so lets see a photo. Well here is one I like taken with my Yashica. Composition could be improved but when I go right I really go left then you get this composition. Lol

Some of the battery/capacitor flash bulb guns use a battery with a higher voltage than is safe for many (or perhaps all) digital cameras. I don't have time to check the specs on the Wein Safe-Sync now. Be sure that it has high enough rating. Some of the old electronic flashes used very high voltages. I vaguely recall voltages over 100. Flash bulbs themselves may have a fairly high surge current. I'm on my way to a camera club meeting in Kansas City at the moment, and don't have time to research that either.

I'm still amazed at the results from flash bulbs, thanks Jim. In addition I am amazed how well the Yashica A performs. I still have to get better at composition with a TRL, everything is backwards. Once you fool around getting it right and then focus darn if you don't ruin your composition. But I think you have to agree flash bulbs work very well.
