Godox Lux Senior with B/W negative film – by Phil Harrison
The photo above shows a Voigtlander Vito B with bulb flash, which was the kit I used in the 60’s for my interior photos and my current camera with what looks like a very similar bulb flash. However this is a very clever electronic flash that collapses neatly into its own body after folding up the reflector petals. The Lux Senior has both Manual and Auto settings, it does not have TTL. It is perfect for film cameras but is also safe on digital cameras. I’ve been using an old Cobra auto flashgun with a piece of white card as a reflector to get a soft light, which is a bit messy and slow to use, but gives a nice light. The Lux Senior doesn’t give as soft a light as the card reflector but its big reflector is not as harsh as most direct flashguns.
