This Gemini Classic kit comes with two Gemini C 500 monolights, two 36" (90cm) umbrellas, two wide angle reflectors, two light stands, one rolling kit case, one sync cord, two modelling lamps, two flash tubes, two nosecones, two power cables, and a Pulsar TX trigger kit.
Accurate, ergonomic and robust, the Gemini Classic has been designed by working closely with photographers to develop a compact flash unit that meets the exacting high standards demanded in professional studios today at the same time remaining simple and intuitive to use.
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 (sold separately). Also, the Gemini Classic has 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.
All “S-Type” accessories from the Bowens range can be used with the Gemini Classic as well as the Bowens Travelpak battery system and Bowens/PocketWizard radio trigger cards.
