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 the accuracy of digital controls and precision adjustments, with the reliability and simplicity of analogue dials, al ‘plug-in' radio trigger module facility, full Infra-Red remote control capabilities, 7-segment LED display and much more. The Gemini 500/500R Twin Head Pulsar TX Kit includes everything you need to get started in the studio, two 500R heads, two stands, a 60x80cm softbox, a 90cm white/silver umbrella, a wide angle reflector, Travelpak, Traveller Studio case BW1050, stand bag, power leads, sync cord and modelling lamps. Also included is the Pulsar Tx Kit (Tx Transmitter and Rx Receiver Card) allowing you to operate the lights without the need for a sync lead from up to 25m away.

Main Features of the Bowens Gemini 500R Pulsar Tx Twin Head Travelpak Kit

  • Compatible with Travelpak (optional accessory) 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 remote, including the flash power, modelling lamp mode and output, ready indicators and photocell functions.
  • Plug-in radio trigger module allowing wireless operation from either the included Bowens Pulsar Tx radio transmitter.
  • 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 diplay 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)

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
