Notes: By default, this kit ships in a case without its wheeled frame. If you need the wheeled frame for transport, please specify in your order notes.

The Bowens Gemini 500R 2 Light Umbrella Kit includes everything you need for quick-to-setup portrait and event lighting. Each head has clearly-labeled buttons--no confusing digital menus to learn. Each head comes with two large dials, one for 5 full-stop power adjustments and another for 1/10th adjustments for very precise lighting changes from 500Ws to 15Ws. The modeling lamp can be easily switched on to full, proportional, or off completely. You may also dim the modeling lamp to taste. For triggering the lights from your camera, the monolights include a 1/4" jack socket for use with an included PC-to-1/4th sync cable. Please make sure that your camera has a PC-in port, otherwise you will need to rent a couple of Pocket Wizards to fire this kit wirelessly. The all-metal body of the monolights are durable and stand up well to travel. The included umbrellas, reflectors, and stands provide an added convenience for the on-the-go shooter who is used to working with studio gear while also being a fantastic starter kit for shooters who are new to strobe lighting.
