Flashcubes?!

I wondered about that, too. In mid-1970's anyone even remotely into photography already used a xenon flash. And this guy was a cameraman. I do recall seeing a separate flash cube attachment in some catalog back then, but all real uses of flash cubes I have encountered were in instamatics and similar cheap cameras using 126 or 110 film cartridges, and in some peel-apart type Polaroids (older ones used single flash bulbs, I have one of those, the Polaroid Zip).
