The Gemini 500R 2-Light Kit from Bowens is aimed at photographers who need a durable, simple-to-operate strobe set-up in the studio or on location. The kit contains 2 complete 500R monolights with reflectors, two stands, two 36" umbrellas, and a rolling case for the kit. The 500R is a lightweight, compact 500Ws monolight with a 250W proportional modeling lamp, 1.3-second recycle time and a flash duration short enough to freeze most movements.
The 500R has built-in wireless capability and offers compatibility with Pulsar Tx wireless triggering cards (sold separately). In addition, the built-in Smartcell allows the Gemini unit to be synchronized to the camera shutter on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th flash as specified by the user. The control dials and LED read-out of the 500R allow full stop and 1/10th stop control of the flash output enabling you to rapidly set the correct exposure.
When AC power is not available the 500R can be powered with the optional Bowens Travelpak battery system. This system is capable of providing up to 750 full-power flashes on a single charge.
