Any small automatic flash gun for Minox LX ?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Minox Photography : One Thread
Any one know is there any small but automatic electronic flash gun to use with Minox LX ? The small Minox flash has only an on off switch, there is not other control. What is the smallest flash gun with a light sensor at front plus a ASA dial ?

Yes,there is a flash gun out there,with a sensor.It is the ACMEL strobe,it looks like the one made for the new Minox MX,only it is restyled.Using the Minox adaptor,I use it on my Minox B.The sensor allows you to shoot anywhere between one foot to twelve with 100 asa,and a bit further with 400.It takes a larger than usual battery,readily available,and it goes on and on,rapid recycling!!! Trust me,it is excellent.You might even be able to use it off camera,with extension cable. Good luck.
