The kit contains 2 complete AC/DC 500R monolights with reflectors, two stands, two 36" umbrellas, and a rolling case for the kit.A small Travelpak battery is also included for locations where mains power is not available.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.
