    Gemini 1500Pro Monolight (90-130/190-250VAC) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Unit, Very Dependable I photograph paintings and sculptures on location and have used the Gemini 1500's for almost a year. They have given me stellar performance. The parabolic reflectors are the most efficient and even reflectors I've ever used. The units give consistent, predictable light that is clean. Their output with the parabolic reflectors is decent, a photographer always wants more, but I can live with these. They are huge, long and tall. But if the cost of this level of dependability is only this, I can live with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid unit. I use my Gemini units for location photography. They are long and heavy, but absolutely dependable. I bought the large parabolic reflectors for them and the light is so even I can use it for copy work and even portraits. The 1/10th stop increments are very useful. If they were half the size and just as powerful, I'd be thrilled, but I would recommend them to anyone and buy them again.
