flashing camera? i need to make a big flash(like the ones in the movies)from the bulb area on my vintage cameras ? Answered

i would like to be able to use my vintage cameras on stage but my director wants them to have a big flash
so what do i buy or construct to make this happen ?  without destroying the look of the camera
i need it to be battery operated , so an actor can just push a button
any ideas?  would like it to be simple and easy  please

A Bright LED should do the trick for you as your not actually taking a photograph.

You could take a disposable camera and use the flash unit and circuit from that to construct a flash unit to install in the vintage camera. Extend the high voltage wires so the head will fit in the reflector and put the driver unit inside the camera with a switch hidden on the outside.
