Additional Product Information
Bowens Gemini 500Pro
The Gemini Pro range delivers more power and faster flash-durations making it the perfect portable flash system for fashion or commercial photographers.
Available in four sizes from 500Ws to 1500Ws the Gemini Pro monolights feature all of the benefits of the Gemini r units, including Travelpak battery and Pulsar/PocketWizard Trigger Card compatibility, but also offer flash-durations as fast as 1/2400 sec and a voltage seeking power system which makes them useable just about anywhere in the world.
Capture split-second action
If you need to capture action, then the Pro range is for you, the 500pro has an amazingly short flash-duration of 1/2400 sec! Compare this to 1/900 sec on the Gemini 500r and the decision is easy for fashion photographers.
The three electrode, flash tube is the reason for the action freezing flash times on the Gemini Pro monolights - the fastest Bowens monolights ever! The flash tube is easily user replaceable too - so, no expensive service centre fees if it needs replacing.
The true go-anywhere system
The Travelpak battery unit means that Gemini Pro lights can ‘go anywhere’ out on location. But what about when you are in the studio in another country? With the Pro range, the Gemini becomes a true go anywhere system. Advanced circuitry within the unit is able to seek the correct voltage to run on meaning that, with a simple switch of modelling lamp, you can take a Gemini Pro monolight anywhere in the world, safe in the knowledge that it will work wherever you go - inside or out.
More time to create
In photography everyone knows that time is money. That is why the Gemini Pro range of monolights boast recycling times to full power faster than ever before. Now you can spend less time waiting for your lights to power up and more time creating amazing images with your world-class lighting.
