Building on the considerable success of the Esprit Gemini range the Bowens Gemini R range has added many additional and new features unavailable on the original Gemini monolight system. These include a new ‘patented' twin-dial power control system that offers theaccuracy of digital controls and precision adjustments, with the reliability and simplicity of analogue dials, an optional ‘plug-in' radio trigger module facility, full Infra-Red remote control capabilities, 7-segment LED display and much more. Ideal as an addition to an existing two head kit the Gemini 500R head comes complete with power lead, sync cord and modelling lamp.

Main Features of the Bowens Gemini 500R Head

  • Travelpak compatible for use on location.
  • Twin dial power control system allows adjustments in either full stops or 1/10th increments.
  • Infra red remote control, via the optional RC-3 remote, including the flash power, modelling lamp mode and output, ready indicators and photocell functions.
  • Optional plug-in radio trigger module allowing wireless operation from the Bowens Pulsar radio transmitters.
  • Smart Photocell allows the user to ignore pre-exposure flashes from on-camera flashes or other small portable units. The flash head can be programmed to trigger on the first, second, third or fourth pre-flash or to 'learn' the sequence for a particular unit.
  • Advanced modelling lamp control allows the usual full, proportional and off settings but also incorporates a 'soft-start' and 'lamp-saver' option to prolong the life of the bulb.
  • Auto-dump is a standard feature of the range and can either flash or resistive dump the power. The intelligent power management system monitors the use and calculates the optimum method.
  • The side and rear LED displays show either the set or the desired power level as well as additional information during user set-up. The display itself can be inverted for use on a ceiling track system.
  • Both audible and visual ready indicators are included with the former having the option to be switched off.
  • Guide No 85 (m/100 ISO)
  • Colour Temperature 5600K (+/-300K)
