Bowens 1000Pro overview

  • 1Description

The Gemini 1000Pro Monolight from Bowens is an ideal choice for both studio and location photography. A classic, dial-oriented design gives immediate access and control to 1000Ws of power, variable over a 7-stop range. Control of the bright 500W modeling lamp is equally intuitive allowing you to select output that's proportional to the flash power level, 100% brightness for easy focus, user-selected light level and off. Monitor your settings on the large digital readout. The 1000Pro recycles in 2.0 seconds to full power and alerts you with an audible beep and ready light when the capacitors are full.

While you can trigger the flash with the included sync cord and adjust flash functions from 23' away with an optional remote control, you can also take advantage of the 1000Pro's wireless compatibly for remote triggering from distances up to 80' by purchasing a Pulsar transmitter and a receiver card that plugs into the body of the flash. Location shooters will appreciate the 1000Pro's DC capability, allowing 75 full power flashes with Bowens' optional small Travelpak battery power supply, 150 flashes with the optional large Travelpak and thousands of flashes with either at reduced power levels.

Travelpak battery compatibility
Pulsar radio trigger card compatibility
Flash durations as short as 1/2100 sec
Multi-voltage power system makes the Gemini 1000Pro operational almost anywhere in the world

Bowens 1000Pro reviews

Gemini 1000Pro Monolight is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last Bowens I'll Have The headline is misleading but true. Though I think it is one of the best lights I've ever owned, it is the end of an era. Sadly, I will have to find a new firm to replace my lights eventually with Bowens dissolving. I've used them my entire career so far (many of them still functional with minor modifications). When I saw this lamp for sale within my budget, I jumped to buy it. It has synced up with my existing system seamlessly!
