Bowens Gemini 500Pro Monolight

The Gemini Pro range delivers more power and faster flash-durations making it the perfect portable flash system for fashion or commercial photographers. The Gemini 500Pro monolight features all of the benefits of the Gemini r units, including Travelpak battery and Pulsar/PocketWizard Trigger Card compatibility, and a voltage seeking power system which makes them useable just about anywhere in the world.Capture split-second action - If you need to capture action, then the Pro range is for you, the 500pro has an amazingly short flash-duration of 1/2400 sec! Compare this to 1/900 sec on the Gemini 500r and the decision is easy for fashion photographers. The three electrode, flash tube is the reason for the action freezing flash times on the Gemini Pro monolights - the fastest Bowens monolights ever! The flash tube is easily user replaceable too - so, no expensive service center fees if it needs replacing.The true go-anywhere system - The Travelpak battery unit means that Gemini Pro lights can ‘go anywhere’ out on location. But what about when you are in the studio in another country? With the Pro range, the Gemini becomes a true go anywhere system. Advanced circuitry within the unit is able to seek the correct voltage to run on meaning that you can take a Gemini Pro monolight anywhere in the world, safe in the knowledge that it will work wherever you go - inside or out.More time to create - In photography everyone knows that time is money. That is why the Gemini Pro range of monolights boast recycling times to full power faster than ever before. Now you can spend less time waiting for your lights to power up and more time creating amazing images with your world-class lighting.Gemini 500Pro Features:Mains & battery poweredFast recycle timesFast flash durationsPatented twin-dial power control system1-stop or 1/10th-stop power adjustmentsFull Infa-Red remote controlledOptional plug-in radio trigger moduleTravelpak compatible5 stops of flash power adjustments (full to 1/32) for 500ws & 750ws unitsAuto-power dump (resistive or flash)Advanced modeling options (full/off/proportional/user defined)Built-in Photocell (on/off)Smart PhotocellUses 'S' Type accessory mountDigital camera friendly 5V sync voltageStandard 1/4" jack sync socketAudible 'ready' beep indicationModeling lamp 'ready' indicationUser replaceable flash tube and modeling lampCompatible with Bowens huge range of accessories
