An electronic light'? •: device does ov/py with the cumborsoma flashbulbs. l!'c .h' very latest thing in indoor pictures. A»i actdcd faalure of this new type camera is that it does not d''sira:t from the wedding or event being photographed. It is completely noiseless since ^there are no flashbulbs lo change. And the flash is so fast, that most of the time, the subjects do not realize that they'are being * photographed. II records but it doss not distract the subjects.
