The best-selling Gemini 500R professional flash lighting kit contains everything you need to start shooting portraiture in the studio and, with the addition of an optional Travelpak battery, Bowens studio quality lighting can go anywhere. Of course like all Bowens kits the 500R Tx/Rx kit offers exceptional value for money.
Bowens standard features such as fast recycling (1.3 sec) and short flash durations (1/900s) are all here as well as a full 5 stop flash power range (500Ws-15Ws) digitally controlled by twin dials, one for stops and the other for 1/10th stop precision control. A switch controls the bright 250W modelling lamp which can be set to Full (100%), Proportional with the flash power, User defined or Off when required.
Each Gemini 500R flash head features a slot to plug in a Pulsar Radio Receiver Card which is included in the kit, the kit also comes complete with a Camera mounted Pulsar Tx Radio Trigger.
The Pulsar Tx allows flash sync over 24 different radio zones, using four channels and six studio settings, enabling you to trigger individual light sources or combine them to fire all at once without ever leaving your camera position.
The kit includes two 36" Silver/White Umbrellas, perfect for portraiture and many still-life applications. The black cover can be simply unclipped and easily removed to leave just the white diffuser, you can then 'shoot through' the umbrella like a softbox.
The inclusion of the Pulsar Radio trigger and receiver coupled with the versatility of being mains (AC) or optional Travelpak Battery (DC) powered means that the Gemini 500R kit is one of the most popular professional flash kits available today.
