Expanded Bowens XMS500 Flash Head Key Features:
The XMS500 is fully digital, ensuring complete accuracy of flash power and colour temperatures. This means less time is required for processing images, allowing more time to create the perfect picture in camera. The intuitive digital control panel makes precise control fast and simple, and with 9-stops of flash power (adjustable in 1/10th-stop or 1-stop) that can be easily set from a single rotary control dial, the XMS500 offers photographers the possibility to shoot at high power settings or as low as 2Ws when wide apertures are required, allowing total creative freedom.
For unprecedented lighting control, the XMS500 is fully compatible with a dedicated 2.4GHz radio remote and trigger system, allowing the photographer to make all necessary adjustments from the camera’s position. It also features multi-voltage operation (100-230V) for worldwide compatibility.
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. The XMS500 uses the Bowens Generation X Flash Tube XMS500 and 38W LED modelling lamp.
