Expanded Bowens XMS1000 Flash Head Key Features:

An Intuitive Design

The XMS1000 is the XMS500's big brother and in this family dynamic, the eldest child is winning all the awards. However, something they both possess is a fully digital design that ensures complete accuracy of flash power and colour temperatures. Ultimately, this is a huge benefit as it means that the quality of your images will be higher and therefore, you'll spend less time processing your images in post-production. There's an intuitive digital control panel that makes precise control changes fast and simple, such as switching between the 9-stops of flash power (adjustable by 1/10th-stop or 1-stop). This flash head allows you to really focus on the creativity of your photoshoot without having to deal with complicated controls and syncing.


When it comes to syncing up your flash to your trigger, it couldn't be easier with the XMS1000. It's quite literally two clicks and you're good to go. The XMS1000 is fully compatible with a Bowens dedicated 2.4GHz radio remote and trigger system. Once you're seamlessly paired, you're then able all necessary adjustments from your camera's position. Perhaps the power was too high in that last shot; simply change it up from where you stand. Equally, the flash also features multi-voltage operation (100-230V) for worldwide compatibility and versatility.

Portable and Durable

Unique design features include an easy-open and quick-lock adjustment latch, to make repositioning and fine tuning the angle of the lights as simple as possible. A foldaway stand mount ensures easy storage and transportation, while an innovative and integrated reflector cap enables photographers to shoot straight out of the box.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
