We present the trade demonstration - which mostly consisted of professional (category 4) fireworks - in the same format they were fired. Kimbolton's extensive range was spread over eleven sequences each a mix of various effects, capped with a finale sequence.

Each sequence is presented with full details of the product names, types, bore sizes, manufacturer's codes and Kimbolton product numbers to enable trade members to quickly identify products of interest. Each full sequence can be downloaded as a video clip and individual items are shown with video stills plus long exposure pictures.

Please note: Products can display significant difference in colour between each type of medium. This is normal due to the different ways that a digital CCD and 35mm film record colour. In addition, the 35mm pictures were scanned from prints, which adds a further stage were colour balance can be changed. Typically, silver and green effects often appear gold or yellow in 35mm. The video is the best indication of actual colour. Some effects however translate poorly to video and stills including gold willow, brocade, palm and other effects; as a result some of the finer effects can look poor.

Scale: All shells on video were filmed at the SAME scale (fully zoomed out); some ground based cakes and candles were zoomed in. All long exposure digital and 35mm pictures are NOT to scale and have been cropped where appropriate.

All items listed in the format: KF description - Manufacturer code - Firework type - KF item number.
