    I have taken the lamp above from a Godox Mini Pioneer flash unit.

    I am having a debate with an ebay seller over what is a flash light and what is a modelling lamp.

    The lamp in the image above I would call a modelling lamp because it only comes on when you switch on the model switch on the back of the flash unit.

    The gentleman in China insists this is the flash light.

    Opinions wanted.

    I am thinking from that the gentelman in china is correct in what he says.

    It still does not explain why it is called a flash tube when it does not flash. The only part of the unit that flash's is the push in bulb that fits in the centre of the unit.

    That definitely looks like a flash tube to me.

    You sure its not just a faulty or loose bulb.

    Is it the same as this
