          Nice kit packaged very well in foam lined case to keep all the parts safe. The 500R monolights perform great and have many useful features.

                Comments about Bowens Gemini 500R 3 Light Kit with Pulsar Tx/Rx Radio Remote (120V):

                I love outdoor photography but using these indoors has been persuading me to shoot indoors more often. I love how simple these are. There are ready lights an beeps so there is no mistaking if you're going to have one light, no lights, or all of your lights ready to fire. They recharge rather quickly for me since I haven't used them in an extremely large place yet, so I never need to doubt if they're ready. The stands are very durable feeling, even when extended a good amount. I have yet to use the soft box, so I can't mention anything about that yet. The plug-in wires are nice and long, I've only had to use an extension cord outdoors once for my backlight! I think they're 15 feet or so? The pulsar Rx/tx cards work great; but be mindful of using them outdoors. I found that I'll probably need more cards instead of relying on the photo cell (in full daylight). I haven't priced those (I'll need three since I have four of these monos) but after paying $ + for them, I'm not worried about the price of those; plus, it may not be necessary if I can figure out how to troubleshoot that since these are still new to me.All in all, being my first professional lighting purchase, I love these lights. Investing in them just made me feel more dedicated to my shooting. I would recommend these for any beginner and above -- they're that easy and efficient!
