Paper Abstract

Early in 1985, Bowen Electronics Ltd., introduced their now well known Rippleflash High Intensity Lighting system using the 5 + 5 flashbar expendable flashbulbts universally used in amateur Polaroid cameras. The decision to use these miniatures was taken as a result of the uncertainty of future supplies of the conventional large Types 2, 3 and FF30 flashbulbs manufactured by Sylvania USA. Ten years earlier, other manufacturers had ceased production of the large ES bulbs due to the decline in consumption by industrial and commercial photographers, following the introduction of powerful new electronic flash sources.
