Hello I just purchased a graflex flash handle and some bulbs but they have not arrived yet.

I am hoping to use the flash in bulb mode to light some nocturnal scenes.

I would like to use #5 bulbs for the foreground and I've also ordered some much more powerful #50 bulbs for the areas further away.

My question pertains to the Edison style bulbs. I know the handle can take bayonet bulbs in the reflector it ships with but it can also take Edison screw mount bulbs if I remove the reflector.

I haven't seen a proper reflector for the Edison bulbs though, so I'm going to fabricate one myself. Are they available anywhere?

I would also like to know how difficult it is to switch between the bayonet reflector and the exposed Edison screw.

What you are looking for is the 7" reflector. Should be very easy to find, there are lots of them out there.
And switching between 5" and 7" reflectors is a pretty simple procedure.
