    I wanted to make a Device to play with were you would press a Botton and a Flash will go off.

    I will use a Push Botton switch but do they sell the Flash that all Camaras have?

    I did think of takiong one out of a Camara but I can not get it apert.

    I thought maybe there is a place to buy Parts like this?

    Hit up Google there are lots of places that sell surplus flash units out of disposable cameras for chump change... And it's honestly not that hard to crack a disposable camera open as they are designed to be opened to get the film out...

    Mind the circuit it can and will bite back...

    Or you can just Google xenon flash kits or circuits, they are not costly...

    I just googled xenon Flash parts and did not find just the Flash.

    I found these big things for $ 75.00 USA I just want the Flash.

    You need to be much more diligent in your searches...

    Do you want just the xenon tube only or a working circuit?

    You can gut a cheap disposable camera at a local store for about $5, that has everything, the driver and the tube as well as a push button...

    You can get a surplus disposable flash from a site like this (took me a few seconds to find in a Google search) no recommendation it just popped in my quick Google search...

    Mind these things, they are HIGH voltage and will bite back...
