The Bowens Gemini 500R 2-Light TravelPak Kit (230VAC) is a solid basic location lighting rig that holds 2 Gemini 500R monolights (a total of 1000Ws), which operate from standard 230VAC power, or from the included Travelpak portable battery with 2 cables (it can provide up to 150 full power flashes), making this powerful monolight a good choice for versatility as well as control.

The simplicity of analog dials with the precision of digital control makes the Gemini 500R a joy to use. One dial easily changes output in 1 f-stop stages, another in 1/10 f-stop steps, to set power over a 5 f-stop range. One switch changes the modelling light from full power to proportional (to actual flash output), to off, or you can choose the modelling light level. The 500R has a card slot which will accept an optional radio trigger card compatible with the Pulsar, PocketWizard, or Litelink radio systems. And the monolights can also be controlled (including all basic features and advanced settings) from up to 32' (10 m) away with the optional Bowens RC3 IR remote handset.

In addition to the 2 monolights, this kit gives you 2 modelling light bulbs (250W each), 2 light stands, a 36" (90 cm) white/silver umbrella and a 24x31" (60x80cm) softbox for versatile light modification, a wide angle flash head reflector, a sync cord, a user's guide and a rolling kit case. This kit is supplied for use with 230VAC.
