COSMETIC CONDITION: This is a used flash in good to very good cosmetic condition for it’s age.
FUNCTIONALITY: The flash has been inspected, cleaned, and tested for functionality.
Working vintage flash units like this one are very hard to find. Far too many have suffered from neglect over the years, with severe battery corrosion being a common issue.
The flash was tested using 4 fresh AA batteries (NOT INCLUDED). I tested the flash by attaching it to a vintage Polaroid OneStep camera. The flash charged and fired properly when triggered by the camera.
