Does anyone want NVS-1 / Stuessy and Jon Falk lighting?

  1. Blast from the past? Does anyone want my collection of NVS-1 and Falk pieces? ! I have a lot of odds and ends of NVS-1 lighting pieces: strobes bodies, cables, strobe heads, modifiers. I used these tinkered-with super powered Vivitar 283 ' s all the time time in the 1990's, and once in a while till 2005 or so. When Jon Falk retired he sent me a carton of cables and light modifiers and different bulb heads. Some wewre early prototypes and some were just extra components. I haven't touched them in a decade and will happily send them to you (in the US----if you're elsewhere pay me the postage) .
    This lighting was fabulous for location lighting in all kinds of odd situations, and easy to carry around. Or maybe you just like to tinker and these will be useful? I HATE the idea of just getting rid of them.
  2. Perhaps you could post some pictures of these rarities?

    Personally, I've never heard of an NVS-1 flash, nor of Jon Falk.
  3. Hey did you ever offload that NVS1 equipment? I always wanted to get my hands on one.
    On a side note it looks like Norm Stuessy passed away in 2019 :(
  4. I have Jon Falk's book. I love his stuff and dream about being able to still get it. I'd love to have these if you still have them.

  6. Any pictures of the stuff?

    Without those, this thread is just talk about something only a handful of people are 'in on' and a complete waste of space to the rest of us.
  7. Wow. I know this thread is over a year old, but I owned an NVS-1, and the "strobe on a rope" bare bulb cable for it, and the "refluser" reflector/diffuser card. I also had Jon Falk’s book “Adventures in Location Lighting”. I was a photojournalism student at Indiana University’s Ernie Pyle School of Journalism, and graduated in 1993, and come to think of it, I think Falk was a guest speaker in one of my PJ classes.
    I don't remember why I sold that gear...
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
