Product Highlights
  • 5-Stop Power Variability
  • Built-in Pulsar Radio Slave
  • 250W Modeling Light
  • 1.5 Sec Recycle Time
  • Digital-Friendly 5V Sync Voltage

The multi award-winning Bowens Gemini 400Rx 400Ws Monolight (90-130VAC) is as compact and lightweight as the standard Gemini flash heads but now includes a built-in Pulsar radio receiver controlled via a simple, single push button.

The Pulsar radio allows full control over 24 different radio zones, using four channels and six studio settings, enabling photographers to isolate various light sources or combining them and firing them all at once, without leaving your camera.

The inclusion of the integrated Pulsar radio receiver coupled with the versatility of compatibility with both mains (AC) and optional Travelpack battery power operation makes the Gemini Rx one of the most resource-rich monolight systems available today.

Note! Wireless triggering requires purchase of a Pulsar transmitter

    Comments about Bowens Gemini 400Rx 400W/s Monolight (90-130VAC):

    First ever light other than a speedlight. Had to jump in, you know there's so much that one can read about lighting, being to play with one is just such a jump forward with your knowledge and skills. The product itself feels solidly built. Great light. I also purchased the 60 degree reflector and a 7' umbrella. Discovered this is not the "right" reflector, but still works. "Discovered" the light doesn't have an umbrella holder, the holder is on the reflector, but I also discovered a 7' umbrella would be too much for this reflector anyway. See? Everything is a learning experience. Great intro level studio light. I like the dial approach to regulate the f/stops.
