The Gemini 500Pro 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 monolights, a reflector, 36" umbrella, a softbox, two stands, a stand bag and rolling kit case. The 500Pro is a lightweight, compact 500Ws monolight with a 250W proportional modeling lamp, 1.1 second recycle time and a flash duration as short as 1/2900 sec., which is fast enough to freeze most movements.
The 500Pro has built-in wireless trigger capability via separate purchase of Bowens' Pulsar Tx transmitter/receiver system. The control dials and LED read-out of the 500Pro allow full stop and 1/10th stop control of the flash output enabling you to rapidly gain correct exposure.
The Pro series monolights feature voltage sensing circuitry allowing worldwide usage. When AC power is not available the 500Pro can be powered with the Bowens Travelpak battery system. This system is capable of providing up to 750 full-power flashes on a single charge.
