Bowens Gemini 250r Head

Bowens Gemini 250r Head


The new Bowens Gemini r monolights are a natural progression and step-up from the best-selling Esprit Gemini.

The Gemini 250r monolight retains the unique ability to be powered from AC mains in the studio or the award-winning Travelpak battery unit out on location as well as boasting a range of new features designed to offer photographers not only ultimate freedom but unmatched power, durability and control too.

Take Control.
Why should precise control be complicated? Simplicity is the key with Gemini. Digitally accurate control is easy without a confusing digital menu! Turn one dial for stops and the other for tenths to instantly set five stops of power with precision control, the LED display confirms the power output. Modelling control is also made simple with one switch, choose from full, proportional or off or even set the modelling lamp to any level you desire.

Freedom is your choice
These days unreliable sync cords are a distant memory for most photographers. Now you can also forget bulky radio receivers attached to your lights too! Thanks to the unique radio-card facility on the Gemini r. By simply plugging a radio trigger card into the slot on the back, Gemini lights instantly become compatible with either the Pulsar radio trigger system or the PocketWizard® system or Litelink - the choice is yours! Because the radio trigger card becomes an integral part of the unit it is much more reliable than an external receiver which can only be as good as it’s cord connection.
Gemini monolights can also be controlled remotely with the Bowens Gemini Remote Control which can adjust all basic features from up to 7m away.

Freedom and control is yours for the taking...

Main Features of the Bowens Gemini 250R Head

  • Travelpak compatible 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 RC-3 remote, including the flash power, modelling lamp mode and output, ready indicators and photocell functions.
  • Optional plug-in radio trigger modules allowing wireless operation from either Bowens Pulsar or Pocket Wizard radio transmitters.
  • 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 display 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 60 (m/100 ISO)
  • Colour Temperature 5600K (+/-300K)
