  • 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.

    Modelling control is also made simple with one switch, choose from full, proportional or off or just set the modelling 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.

    Always In-Sync
    These days unreliable sync cords are a distant memory for most photographers. Now you can also forget bulky radio receivers attached to your lights too, thanks to the unique radio-card facility on the Gemini 500R flash. By simply plugging a radio receiver card into the slot on the back, Gemini lights instantly become compatible with the Pulsar Radio Trigger system.


    Full Metal Jacket
    Bowens products have always been acclaimed for build quality and durability. The Gemini 500R is no different, the tough metal body protects the sophisticated circuitry and high powered capacitors from knocks and bumps which are only natural in hard working studios and during transportation. It is for this reason that Bowens lights are so popular in schools and colleges all around the world.
