I saw this on another forum.

The following comes from the manual for a Flashpoint Streaklight 360 flashgun.

A change from the usual dry manual.

"Do not use the flash unit in the presence of flammable gases, chemicals and other similar materials. In certain circumstances, these materials may be sensitive to the strong light emitting from this flash unit and fire may result. A whole new meaning to “Flashpoint”."


"When taking pictures for babies, keep the flash unit at least 1 meter (3.3 feet) away from them. Using bounce flash to reduce light intensity Is also recommended. Plus It will make them look cuter. Because it creates softer light, and larger catchlights In the eyes. And makes them look more angelic. Which is good. Cause they are babies. They are SUPPOSED to look angelic! Also you won’t get hard shadows from that ridiculous gigantic bow they decided to stick on the baby’s head if you bounce your light."


"Stop using this product if it breaks open due to internal shifting, falling or strong impact. STRONG electric shock may occur if you touch the components inside it. You might DIE. Don’t risk It. Reincarnation Is not covered by the warranty."

That has to be the best line ever in a technical manual

Now I want to know what everybody else's lifetime warranty means.
