View Full Version : Ikoblitz 4 - what bulb?
One of these came with a $5 camera I found, it had a 15V battery in it but luckyly no corrosion.
Which kind of flashbulbs does it use?
It takes bayonet base bulbs like 5, 5B. If it has its small grey adaptor in the centre of the fan it can also use midget base bulbs like M2, M3 and M5.
The midget bulbs are better as the fan is a little small for larger bayonet bulbs. A great little bounce flash and the batteries are still available. Have fun!
Thanks! you can see the Ikoblitz here:
Ok, disregard my previous post - your one is set up for capless bulbs like PF1 etc. For some reason I find these bulbs more popular in Europe than the USA - certainly here in the UK they appear on ebay more often than any other.
It is a European Model, the camera it came with it has a photo-plait Paris sicker in the film chamber and the focusing scales are in m.
I started CLA'ing the camera last night, the shutter works fine, but the winding mechanism is not turning enough, needs another "click"
