Gemini Classic 500C
Compact flash

The Gemini Classic 500C features the unique ability to easily integrate with the Bowens Pulsar 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 (see battery performance table).

The Classic Bowensmonolight is so simple to use it’s easy to see why it is the favoured lighting in photographic schools and colleges world-wide.
