Engineered for speed, reliability and cutting edge aesthetics, the Bowens XMS500 Twin Head Kit boasts an enhanced specification, including flash durations as short as 1/10,309s and recycle times as rapid as 0.01s. A foldaway stand mount allows portability and easy storage, and an integrated reflector cap allows you to shoot straight out of the box.

The XMS flash range: outstanding performance and value

The Bowens XMS range (available in 500, 750 and 1000Ws models) is the definitive flash system targeting studio photographers. All XMS units are fully digital, ensuring total accuracy of flash power and colour temperatures. This means less time required for processing images and more time available for creating the perfect picture in camera.

The intuitive digital control panel makes precision control fast and simple and with 8-stops of flash power (adjustable in 1/10th-stop or 1-stop) that can be easily set from a single rotary control dial, the XMS offers photographers the possibility to shoot at high power settings or as low as 5Ws when wide apertures are required, allowing total creative freedom.

For unprecedented lighting control the XMS range 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. All XMS units also feature multi-voltage operation (100-230V) for worldwide compatibility: they can be plugged into any mains system on the planet.

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

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.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

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.
