With my local 1951(?) Speed Graphics came a few flashbulbs.

Should I take any precautions to store them safely?

New member, new to LF, coming back to film.

A big plunge, lots to learn, but I am looking forward to have this forgotten machine see the light again!

When new flash bulbs came in heavy paper cartons with the bulbs in a card stock type of center with the base of the bulbs inserted into holes in it that were secure enough to hold the bulb in place.

DO NOT carry them in your pocket if you wear synthetic blend, wool, or other static producing clothing.


They should be fine in a compartment of the vulcanoid case. http://www.southbristolviews.com/pics/Graphic/manual-pdf/4266_handicase2.gif
