question

is it possible to trigger 4 of these lights simultaneously?
Asked by: Ricardo C.
The Bowens Gemini 400Rx has both a 1/4 phone sync terminal and has a built-in optical slave, so you basically have to options to trigger multiple lights simultaneously. The first option would be to purchase a radio remote system that would allow you to connect the receiver to the 1/4 sync terminal on the strobe. If all four strobes are connected to a remote and you have them all set to the same channel and group as the radio transmitter on your camera, when you trigger your camera, all four flashes would fire simultaneously.An example would be to purchase one (1) of the Vello FreeWave LR Kit with 2 Receivers, B&H # VERFWLRK, and two (2) of the Vello FreeWave LR Receiver, B&H # VERFWLRR, which would give you a total of four (4) receivers and one transmitter. The above receivers would come with the necessary sync cables to connect to the strobe monolight's sync terminal. Using a radio receiver on each light would be the most secure method to trigger all lights simultaneously.The second option for wireless usage would be to simply use one transmitter and one receiver. As the units have built-in optical slaves, when the monolight connected to the receiver is triggered, it can simultaneously trigger the other three monolights without receivers as long as their sensor sees the output from your flash with the receiver. Do note that if there are other photographers around with flashes on their cameras, their flash may also trigger your lights.The most economical way would be to simply use the sync cable that is included with the light kit, and connect the sync cable from the monolight to the PC sync terminal on your camera (or if your camera does not have one, you may purchase a hot shoe to PC adapter, such as the Vello Universal Hot Shoe Adapter for PC Connection, B&H # VEHSAPCU. As with the previous setup, when the monolight with the sync cable is triggered, it can simultaneously trigger the other nearby monolight strobes using their built-in optical slaves.

question

I have the following:PocketWizard - TT5, miniTT1Sekonic - L478drAm I able to control the power output, not just trigger, the Bowens Gemini 400Rx with my Sekonic lightmeter like I can in my speedlights?
Asked by: Ray G.
While you may use the PocketWizard FlexTT5 Transceiver Radio Slave for Nikon i-TTL Flash System with the Bowens Gemini 400Rx 400W/s Monolight (using the PocketWizard MM1 Miniphone to Miniphone Cable -12 , B&H # WICMM16, to connect the two items together), you will have to set the flash output manually. There is no adapter or option that would allow you to control the flash output power of the Bowens Gemini 400Rx Monolight from either the PocketWizard FlexTT5 Transceiver Radio or the Sekonic LiteMaster Pro L-478DR-U Light Meter for PocketWizard System.

question

Is there any other way to trigger these lights without the Pulsar Tx Radio Transceiver? I've busted mine and I'd rather not have to spend $200 replacing it...
Asked by: Josh R.
Just with the sync cord.

question

Can a light meter trigger these lights? And Wirelessly? Can you suggest a light meter model, if so?
Asked by: Stefan
I'm not aware of light meter that will trigger the lights, only the trigger that is made for it. I have a Sekonic L758DR and I have not been able to use it to trigger the lights. Maybe someone else has had better luck.

question

what cameras are compatible with the sync chord?
Asked by: Anonymous
Any camera with a PC port. This is the sync cord connection point found in most medium / high-end cameras. If you don't have that but have a flash shoe, I believe there are adapters that you can slide into the shoe and use a PC cord with the adapter. It simply sends a signal from the camera body to the flash.In addition, there are other ways with more modern tech that cameras can trigger the flashes as well.

question

i want to use these with 7 foot parabolic umbrellas. Ive read the umbrella reflector you can get seperately is not strong enough to hold a giant umbrella. What can i use instead? Are there umbrella swivel mounts strong enough to hold this unit and a parabolic? i know i could use two light stands, one for the umbrella and one for the monolight, but it would be that much more to lug around and secure against the wind.
Asked by: Micah T.
Use 2 stands, be sure to have sandbags for that
