The Bowens Gemini 500R flash has been designed to offer photographers not only ultimate creative freedom but unmatched power, durability and control. Our best-selling monolight is packed so full of features it is easy to see why the Society for Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) have voted it the best studio lighting system and the best location lighting system too! Take Control We don't think that digital precise control should be complicated. That's why simplicity is the key with Bowens Gemini flash units. We have made digitally accurate control easy without a confusing menu system. Simply turn one dial to adjust the flash power in full stops and the other for tenths of stops to instantly set five stops of power from 500Ws to 15Ws with precision control, the LED display confirms the power output. Modeling control is also made simple with one switch, choose from full, proportional or off or just set the modeling lamp to any level you desire. Gemini monolights can also be controlled from afar with the Bowens Gemini Remote Control which can adjust all basic features from up to 7m away - ideal when your lights are mounted on a ceiling rail system such as the Bowens Hi-Glide system. Location, Location, Location The Gemini 500R can be powered from AC mains power in the studio and when you want to go out on location, your studio quality lighting can go with you too. Gemini lights can be powered by the optional Bowens Travelpak battery system which is able to provide power to two Gemini lights. Using the 500R with the Small Travelpak will provide up to 150 full power flashes per charge (Double that with the Large Travelpak).
$ 889.00The Photogenic AKC320B is an excellent choice for any photographer who needs battery-powered monolight that maintains a constant color temperature. It's easy to use on location or in the studio. These lights employ "constant color" technology which prevents the color temperature from visibly shifting, regardless of flash power level. You can be confident that the white balance at 320Ws is the white balance at 10Ws.
Bowens have teamed with industry leading soft box light control specialists, Light tools, to offer a range of their patented Soft Egg Crates and Stretch Frames designed to fit all Lumiair soft boxes. The lightweight fabric grids are highly portable and are able to be folded away easily into a handy almost pocket-sized pouch for transport or storage. When tight light control is needed, the grids fit neatly into the inner recess of a Lumiair soft box fixed with Velcro style strips along each edge. Bowens and Light tools are industry bywords for quality when it comes to lighting - combined we have created a soft box range that simply cannot be equaled.
The Hi-Glide Cable Transfer Runners carry power cables along the rails. The origins of Bowens go back more than 80 years to 1923. The company was originally founded as a camera repair company which by the 1950s had grown to be one of the largest in Europe. It was at this time that Bowens first started manufacturing lighting equipment for photographers. (Pack of 5)
