Radiopopper designed the world’s first radio TTL flash system. Honeywell chose Smith-Victor to help light Boeing 747 jet wings.

James Smith started Smith-Victor in the late 1800’s in Chicago by inventing the first reliable flash system for photography. Today 40 miles west of the old plant we still make some of the worlds finest lighting systems and accessories for professionals and hobbyists alike
Established in 1963, Norman has garnered a place in the hearts and minds of professional still photographers as contemporary in its styling and unswerving in meeting today’s challenges, delivering quality results from one moment to the next.
