A Little History Lesson: The first recognizable flash bulb for general use was invented in 1925 by Vierkötter – using flash powder in an evacuated light bulb, fired by a lamp filament. Later that year, Vierkötter made a low-pressure-filled bulb. There are conflicting reports of the first commercial bulbs – made either by General Electric in the US, c.1927, or the Vacublitz aluminium foil bulbs made by Ostermeier in Germany, c.1929.
