Hi Folks,

Some years ago, I inherited an old Sears Tower Box Camera. I has sat on a shelf since, but I've recently had a nagging urge to load it and see what it's capable of (or, more appropriately, what I'm capable of with this camera). One curiosity I had is whether there might be a way to somehow rig it to fire my Nikon flashes. It has a very old flash mechanism that uses the old flash bulbs, but I'm wondering if I couldn't use the electrical contacts that would have otherwise triggered the flash bulbs to somehow fire my speedlights.

Any thoughts?
