Bowens Gemini 500c Flash Head

Bowens Gemini 500c Flash Head


Get unwired with the Gemini Classic, Bowens mid-range lighting, for even more freedom.

The Gemini Classic 500C features the unique ability to easily integrate with either the Bowens Pulsar or PocketWizard® radio trigger systems by plugging in a small radio trigger card.

The Gemini Classic range feature a greater degree of modelling control via the separate 'lamp' dial so you can set the 250W modelling lamp to any level you require, to preview where light and shadows may fall, in adition to the usual '100%', 'proportional' and 'off' options.

The Gemini 500C is able to be powered from mains (AC) or the optional Travelpak battery system delivering up to 300 flashes per charge out on location ).

The Classic Bowens monolight is so simple to use it's easy to see why it is the favoured lighting in photographic schools and colleges world-wide.
Our most popular kit configurations are the two-head kits.
These appeal to photographers buying studio lighting for the first time as well as photographers looking for exceptional value for money.
Typical two head kits include two Gemini monolights with two Bowens lighting support stands. To control the light we include a Softbox and a silver/white umbrella, together with a wide-angle umbrella reflectors.

In our experience, this creates a very easy-to-use and effective two-light setup. The umbrellas are perfect for portraiture and many still-life applications - the black cover can be removed allowing you to fire the light through the umbrella like a softbox.
The kits include a sync lead for camera connection and all the power cables, modelling lamps and flash tubes.
Everything is then packed into a single lightweight yet sturdy carrying case, with casters, for easy transportation.

Two-Head Travelpak Kits
Two heads kits are also available complete with a Bowens TravelPak Battery, able to power two Gemini units simultaneously out on location.
