Before there were Camcorders there were the home movie cameras and the dreaded light bar. These lights were 10 x brighter than the sun. This one only has two lights so only 5 times as bright as the sun. Of course they were for indoor filming or outdoors at night with a long extension cord.
As can be seen this is in the box which is how the lights survived. The earlier ones had a reflecting backing that would protect the lights but these bulbs had built in reflectors.
The light bar could be screwed into the camera. Also there is a removable handle so you can handily hold the camera and light bar by the handle or camera in one hand and light bar in the other or someone else holding the light bar and so on.
There was also a device for synchronizing the camera and light bar which is not pictured here. What I think I will need is a camera that accepts the light bar so I can show how it all goes together.
