However, the P series of Nikon cameras are for keen enthusiasts and as such, don’t really offer much in the way of easy modes for the point and shooters. Therefore the electron index is the only free parameter in the modelling when assuming typical radiation fields. A rather soft electron spectrum is needed to match the -ray data, whereas the X-ray data suggests a harder spectrum. Various parts sources including the use of Radio Shack stuff.
Please note that unrelated glass discoloration or staining that resembles corroded getters can occur in a heavily used or moderately abused flashtube that still works. See the section: Flashlamp and Arc Lamp Manufacturers and References for links to specifications as well as externsive technical information and application/design notes. There is no easy way to test the transformer and the other components rarely fail. Mine Exploder T3 Flail — Development Model; British-designed flail system; based on British-designed scorpion concept.
Symptoms: manual test button will fire flash but shutter release has no effect. Always use it to flash at a wall, never let the public look into such a bright flash. Inadequate trigger charging power (RC time constant too long) will result in missed or erratic triggering. Component values are not critical but behavior under varying input/output voltage and load conditions will be affected by R1 and C1 (and the gain of your particular transistor). WARNING: Output is high voltage and dangerous even without large energy storage capacitor.
