No, the Bowens XMTRN Flash Trigger for Nikon is not compatible with the older Bowens Gemini monolights. It is only compatible for use with the Bowens XMT500 Monolight Flash Head.

question

I am having trouble with this transmitter on 2 parts. Using this transmitter with the Bowens XMT500s1. I can not get the XMTR transmitter on my Nikon D750 to go into TTL Mode. I have been up and down the menu in the transmitter and it will only stay in STR. For something that should be rather simple it has now crossed into frustrating. I have followed the instructions, but still wont go into TTL. What am I missing? 2. On my Nikon once the transmitter is in the hot shoe, I can not crank shutter speed over 1/250th to engage HSS. I have gone into the menu and engaged the 1/250th (Auto FP) but the camera will not roll past 1/250th. Any help or suggestions are appreciated!

question

Does the XMTR work correctly in Europe? No problem with frequencies?
Asked by: Petr T.
While the Bowens XMTRC Flash Trigger for Canon will work in Europe, do note that the units we carry are designed to comply with the United States' FCC radio rules as mentioned on page 5 of the flash trigger's instruction manual. As Europe has different frequencies for citizen usage, the frequencies used by the Bowens XMTRC Flash Trigger for Canon might not be legal for usage in Europe, but it will still wirelessly trigger a Bowens XMT monolight that was purchased here in the United States.

How 2.4GHz frequency works in this remote? I can only manage to control my XM500 and nothing else. I have a Godox V1s which is supposed to trigged remotely
Asked by: Fil
This transmitter is strictly for triggering Bowens monolights that utilize the XMR/XMT series radio system. To trigger a Godox V1 for Sony which has a Godox X series receiver, you would need a transmitter such as the Godox XProS TTL Wireless Flash Trigger for Sony Cameras, B&H # GOXPROS. https://bhpho.to/38BgLcm

will this work with ellingchromes as well and will the Ellingchrome work with the Bowens?
Asked by: OGDEN
No, it will not. The Bowens XMTRC Flash Trigger for Canon, B&H # BOBW5195C, is specifically designed for use with the Bowens XMT500 TTL Battery Powered 500Ws Monolight, which has a built-in Bowens XMT radio receiver. The receiver is not available as a separate purchase for use with other flashes, and the Bowens XMTRC Flash Trigger for Canon will not work with other brand/model strobe units (it is not even compatible with older Bowens flash units; the Bowens XMT500 Monolight is the only TTL monolight ever released by Bowens). As the Bowens XMT500 Monolight has a 1/8" (3.5mm) miniphone sync terminal on the bottom of the unit, you could purchase the Elinchrom Skyport receiver to connect to the sync terminal on the bottom of the unit, and you can purchase an Elinchrom Skyport transmitter for use on your camera, and that setup would wirelessly trigger the monolight. However, you will have to set the flash output power manually, as you cannot control the flash output of the Bowens XMT500 from the Elinchrom transmitter on the camera, and there would not be TTL automatic flash output when using the Elinchrom transmitter; you must use the Bowens transmitter if you need TTL flash output or the ability to set the flash output from the transmitter mounted on the camera.
