    Can't recall how long it is since I've seen a flash cube ! Used to use them on my Kodak Instamatic 126 - they were known as Ancient Mariners, as they only seemed to go off about one time in three.

  3. Where can you buy flashcubes these days? And why would you, when a thrift store/charity shop electronic flash costs peanuts?
     
  4. as for the first:
    flash cubes | eBay

    closets all over the world have flash cubes somewhere in the back.

    but the second part of rodeo-joe's response is pretty germane. :cool:
     
  5. Well, yes, you can buy old stock flashcubes, but they have an indeterminate shelf-life.

    If that little blue indicator dot has turned from blue to pink, then whatever they cost has been money down the drain.
     
  6. For many years, until I got a Vivitar 283, I had an Agfalux C, which is about the size of
    the flash cube, (not including the flash cube). The one I had wasn't hot shoe, but the
    one my father had was. It has a case that the camera strap slides through, so it is
    always handy. I got another one a few years ago, the hot shoe version.

    But for extra flash fun, when I get to trying them, I have some #40 flash bulbs.
    Those are about the size of a 40W bulb, and have the same thread.
