Hi I have just aquired a Minolta Autopak D6 and I noticed it has a Flash/Light plug-hole on the top..

Will any halogen lamp / flash fit in it?

I found this page and I'm assuming all adapters for light fittings on super-8 camera are the same?

That socket is a standard 3/8" fitting, the same as a tripod screw. Movie lights have an appropriate bracket. Screwing it in also removes the 85 filter.
However, having the light on the camera is rarely the best place to put it, as you'll know if you've ever taken a portrait with flash-on-camera.
