    'Several thousand dollars' if it looked like this:
    http://www.shutterbug.net/newsletter/122606sinar/
    -but yours looks only maybe 12 inches diameter (versus almost six-foot)
    & like it should have a bulb protruding out to be reflected & focused?

    I'd like to see it opened up, the umbrella looks interesting. What is
    that material, fabric? It doesn't look like it would connect to any
    camera that anyone is still using.

  8. I wonder when they went out of fashion.
    Generally, that's a sign things are worth keeping. :)

    Wow. That thing is cool looking. It is hit or miss with stuff like
    this. You might want to put it on Ebay and see if there are any
    collectors that are interested. Good Luck.
