Bowens 500R Overview

  • 1Description

The Bowens Gemini 500R 3-Light Kit includes 3 Gemini 500R monolights, which have the unusual ability to operate from standard AC power or from the Travelpak portable battery unit, making this powerful monolight a good choice for versatility as well as control. The simplicity of analog dials with the precision of digital control makes the Gemini 500R a joy to use. One dial easily changes output in 1 f-stop stages, another in 1/10 f-stop steps, to set power over a 5 f-stop range. One switch changes modeling light from full power, to proportional (to actual flash output), to off, or you can choose the model light level. The 500R has a card slot which will accept an optional radio trigger card compatible with the Pulsar, PocketWizard, or Litelink radio systems. And, the monolights can also be controlled (including all basic features and advanced settings from up to 32' (10 m) away with the optional Bowens RC3 IR remote handset.

In addition to the 3 monolights, this kit gives you 3 light stands, a softbox and 2 white/silver umbrellas for light modification, 2 wide angle flash head reflectors, a sync cord, a user's guide, and a rolling kit case.
