Bowens 1000Pro overview

  • 1Description

The Gemini 1000Pro 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 two complete 1000Pro monolights, a 45" umbrella, a softbox, two stands, a stand bag and a rolling kit case. The 1000Pro is a compact, powerful 1000Ws monolight with a 250W proportional modeling lamp, 2.0 second recycle time and a flash duration as fast as 1/2100 sec., which is fast enough to freeze most movements.

The 1000Pro has built-in wireless capability and is compatible with Bowens Pulsar Tx transmitter/receiver system. The control dials and high-visibility LED read-out of the 1000Pro allow full-stop and 1/10th-stop control of the flash output enabling you to rapidly set the correct exposure over a seven-stop range.

The Gemini Pro series monolights feature voltage sensing circuitry allowing worldwide usage but, when AC power is not available, the 1000Pro 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.

  • Gemini 1000Pro Monolight

    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
  • 10' Compact Light Stand (Black)

    Bowens Compact Light Stands represent exceptional value for money. Constructed from black anodized aluminum for a sturdy, attractive and non-reflective appearance, Bowens stands feature high-quality aluminum locking clasps, rather than plastic used by some other brands.

    This stand rises to a maximum height of 10' (305 cm) and collapses down to 33.85" (86 cm).

    Ultimate stability and maximum safety
  • 6.0" Wide-Angle Umbrella Reflector, 120 Degrees

    This Bowens 6.0" Wide-Angle Umbrella Reflector, 120 Degrees provides a very wide light spread from the light source. This reflector is ideal for use with an umbrella mounted to the flash head. When the reflector is used by itself, the light output has hard shadows and high contrast.

  • 45" Umbrella (Silver/White)

    This dual-purpose Bowens 45" Umbrella (Silver/White) features a reflective white interior surface. It is backed by a removable black fabric with a silver surface, which provides a soft but highly efficient bounced light source.
    For close-up lighting, the silver/black backing can be removed, allowing the photographer to get closer to the subject while lighting through the translucent umbrella.

    The unique 10-panel design provides maximum reflectance and an optimum circle pattern of light. The resulting light is perfect for catch lights in the eyes. This size is perfect for portraits of 1 or 2 people.

  • Lumiair 100 Softbox (39 x 39 x 18.9")

    This Bowens Lumiair 100 Softbox (39 x 39 x 18.9") is a good choice for softening the output of your flash.

    Precision tension ensures straight edges delivering clean cut-off of the light beam, while the optimum color calibration of the reflective interior surface together with shallow construction, offers a high degree of light efficiency.

    Add to this two layers of diffusion and you have an even spread of light - no more than 1/2 stop from center to edge, without distracting hotspots. Each Lumiair softbox comes complete with a simple zip-up carry case to ensure safe and easy transportation to location shoots. Lumiair softboxes also include the main canopy, a rear cowl, front diffuser, internal diffuser and support rods.

    Lumiair softboxes come with a 2-part speed ring - a basic ring accepts the rods and the included Bowens insert. There are also inserts available for most other flash head brands.
