REVEAL: Vintage Camera’s light

Scrapping has always had a history of turning up interesting odds and ends. Our scrap yard is no exception. We get scrap from all over the county, as well as surrounding counties. The amount of interesting objects we find is endless. Last week we posted a snippet of our unidentified object. You can find that post here. Today you get to see what that object is! Scroll down to see it!

It is a Flash for an old camera. This one in particular is an Argus flash. While doing research on this flash, I did find similar models but not exactly light it. It seems as though they all have some type of number, for identifying, but this one has no number. Or at least it has no number that I can see anymore. The bulb is a Sylvania P25 bulb and probably my favorite part of this scrap object. When I look into the bulb I am reminded of outer space, but a white space instead of black space. You can take a look at an Argus instruction manual here.

 

Also, fun fact of the day! Old vintage flash base were used for lightsabers in the original Star Wars movies! Though they were different from the one you see here, it is the same idea. So next time you see a vintage flash call on the force and maybe you can get that bulb to light up.
